LOS ANGELES - While you might want to share your Thanksgiving feast with your furry family members, you must protect your pets by keeping dangerous holiday foods away from them.
Here are 7 foods you should NEVER feed your pet at Thanksgiving:
Turkey skin or turkey bones: Fatty trimmings, cooked or uncooked, can cause pancreatitis in dogs. Bones can cause choking or even splinter and block or cut your dog's digestive system.
Raisins and grapes: These can cause kidney failure in dogs, and just a small amount can make a dog sick.
Onions and garlic: They both contain the chemical thiosulfate, which is harmful to our four-legged friends. Over time, it can cause breathing problems and damage to red blood cells.
Yeast dough: This is a definite no-go. It can rise and cause gas to accumulate in your pet’s digestive system. This can cause painful stomach bloating and could become a life-threatening emergency.
So keep these foods off the menu for Fido. He’ll stay healthy and happy-- and thankful for you.
