On Thanksgiving Day, your home is full of wonderful, mouth-watering smells. As you fill your plates with delicious Thanksgiving side dishes, your dog is hoping for something tasty to fall off your plate.
That or your fussy kids slide the foods they don’t want to eat under the table for Fido to enjoy. When pets sniff around the table, it’s natural to want to share a table scraps or two with them, but should you?
When it comes to Thanksgiving foods, the Idaho Humane Society says you have to proceed with caution. Some Thanksgiving foods can make your pets sick to their stomachs or cause more dangerous symptoms like kidney failure and seizures. They’ve shared a comprehensive list of “not dog-friendly” foods, and we dug a little deeper into each category to find out exactly WHY these foods are dangerous for dogs.
You will find these foods below. If your pet gets into any of these foods and you have concerns for their well-being, WestVet is open and providing emergency pet care 24/7/365. per year. We sincerely hope your Thanksgiving weekend doesn’t require a trip to the vet, but if you want to keep their emergency number close, it’s 208-375-1600.
