Pet safety during the Holidays

When it comes to your lovely pets, spoiling them during the holidays with table food can sometimes be good and bad. Feeding them their normal food is a good route to go but giving them some pieces here and there can be okay.

During the thanksgiving dinner, pets can have bland pieces of turkey, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Uncooked raw meat, salty or spicy foods can be dangerous. If your pet has allergies, be sure to let your guests know so they don’t offer the animal something that could hurt them.

"If your animal were to have a fair up or reaction to food, it might be more difficult than normal to get them the care they need. So we say, place it safe this holiday season and if it’s not something you usually feed them, maybe just steer clear”, said Nicole Facciotto who is the humane education manager with animal allies.

If your pet becomes sick, Benadryl can be given to them. The measurement of how much the pet weighs, is the dose amount that should be given to them. If there is something that you want to feed your animal, but you don’t know if it’s safe for them, take some time, and do a little research first.
