With the holidays right around the corner (where did the time go?) there are a couple of things to keep in mind to keep your pets healthy this holiday season.
We’re sure that you’ll agree with us when we say that best thing about Thanksgiving is the food! And with all of the chaos that will surround your kitchen this holiday season, it is extremely important that you watch everything that falls form the counter tops, because you can be sure that your pet will be watching with an eagle eye!
There are good reasons for not allowing your pet to consume any human food. Consuming turkey bones, processed food, or other seasoned and prepared meals can leave your pet feeling sick for days. And if you thought that stuffing the turkey was hard work, try planning a Thanksgiving dinner all while taking care of your sick pet!
If you want to treat your pet on the holiday, a little properly cooked can be perfectly safe to give your pet. Please make sure that you ONLY give them turkey or chicken that has been prepared with NO SEASONING, or rinse the meat prior to giving it to your pet.
All of us at Christensen Animal Hospital wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
