AVMA Thanksgiving Pet Tips

While the Thanksgiving meal is an American favorite that humans love to enjoy, it is not a pet-friendly meal in many ways.

In this video, the speaker discusses ways to keep your pets safe during the Thanksgiving holiday.  No matter how much your pets beg, you should not give them any leftovers: Their bodies can’t process the fat in turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and other such offerings.  Bones can also pose a choking risk and can perforate your animal’s intestines if swallowed.  Make sure you dispose of everything having to do with your turkey—including both packaging and leftovers—by immediately throwing it away in an outdoor trash can. 

If your pet overindulges this Thanksgiving, then contact the Chastain Veterinary Medical Group straight away. For more information call Preston Road Animal Hospital in north Dallas at 877-296-5995 or call Meadow Brook Animal Hospital in McKinney at 972-439-1344 .
