Safe Thanksgiving Foods for Your Pet’s Holiday Feast
Thanksgiving is coming up, so include your dogs in the festivities and cook a nice feast for your loved ones. In this blog article, we’ll walk you through some safe Thanksgiving recipes so your four-legged friend may eat them guilt-free.
1. Turkey Treats: It is okay to feed pets cooked, unseasoned turkey; however, you should not give them the skin, bones, or any fatty or seasoned portions. Choose a boneless, lean turkey and chop it into little, bite-sized pieces. This high-protein treat is sure to please your pet!
2. Mashed Potatoes: Steer clear of any ingredients that can upset your pet’s stomach, such as butter, cream, or garlic. Offer a tiny scoop as a once-in-a-while treat.
3. Green beans: Green beans are a safe and healthy choice for your pets. When boiled or steamed without additional butter or salt, they provide a healthy side meal that your pet will love. The crispy texture is certain to please!
4. Pumpkin: A popular fall pet food is pumpkin. It is nutrient and fiber-rich, supporting healthy digestion. You can add plain canned pumpkin (not pie filling) to your pet’s food or use it as a garnish on their regular diet.
5. Carrots: Many pets love carrots all year long, and they make a delicious, crunchy snack during Thanksgiving. Carrots served raw and fresh in little bite-sized chunks are a healthy choice.
6. Fresh Water: No matter which Thanksgiving foods you choose to share with your pet, always ensure they have access to fresh water throughout the day. This helps prevent dehydration and aids in digestion.
7. Keep the Toxic Stuff Away: Even though your pet’s Thanksgiving meal might benefit significantly from these safe foods, it’s important to avoid potentially dangerous components like onions, garlic, raisins, grapes, chocolate, and nuts. They should never be served to pets because they can be poisonous.
Give your pet some delicious and safe treats to share this Thanksgiving and make special memories. Remember always to emphasize their health and well-being and limit portion sizes.
