SPOKANE, Wash. – If you decide to feed your pet a bit of a treat this Thanksgiving holiday, you will want to make sure you watch out for certain foods that could be harmful to them.
Make sure the turkey is boneless and well-cooked. You would not want to give them undercooked or raw turkey which may contain salmonella bacteria.
Of course, you will want to be careful with the items you have on your table or around your house. Many common plants like Baby’s Breath and Chrysanthemums are toxic to your pet.
No bread dough:
When animals ingest raw bread, their body heat causes the dough to rise in their stomach, the ASPCA said. As it expands, the pet may experience vomiting, severe abdominal pain, and bloating.
As tempted as they may be, keep your pets noses out of the batter, especially if it includes raw eggs.
Too much of a good thing:
A few small boneless pieces of cooked turkey, a taste of mashed potato or even a lick of pumpkin pie should not pose a problem. However, do not allow your pet to overindulge, as they could wind up with an upset stomach.
