Here are some tips to remember this festive season.
What is safe for dogs to eat on Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving usually means a feast and a lot of these foods are actually toxic to our pups!
Many dog owners often ask, “can I give my dog Thanksgiving turkey?”
Turkey, the most popular food on Thanksgiving, has some potential risks to our pups. Its skin is actually super high in fat and holds all of the seasoning and butter (although delicious to us humans, this part of the turkey is toxic to pets).
Cooked bones are also very dangerous. You may think you are giving your dog a special treat to enjoy, but the cooked bones actually splinter and can get stuck to your dog’s throat which is dangerous and can be fatal.
Dessert is common sense for most, but it’s easy to forget that you left a pie on the counter and your pup jumps up and gets it. Just try to keep all holiday foods away from the edge of the counter, and high up!
So, what can I make my dog for Thanksgiving? 100% Pumpkin Puree is great for dogs – offer a spoonful for a nice treat, but no sugar or any additives!
How do you keep your dog safe and comfortable when you have a lot of guests?
During the holidays, people are constantly coming in and out of the doors. Some are friends and family, some neighbors.
Your dogs may be scared of the new people or not used to numbers. If you know you have a large group coming and your dog will feel distressed, it’s best to put your dog in their crate or a room they are comfortable in until things return back to normal.
Using the 4Knines Dog Mat inside the crate provides your dog with an extra comfortable resting place.
