5 Thanksgiving favorites you can totally share with your pets.
by Kris Phillips
Turkey! Sure you’ll have plenty left over and it’s totally ok to share with dogs and cats, as long as it’s unseasoned and de-boned. So if anyone complains the turkey was bland, just tell them you’re planning to save some for Fido.
Sweet Potatoes. Usually served baked under a layer of marshmallows, you’ll want to save a few raw chunks to share with the dogs. And NEVER let your pets have the marshmallows, most of them are made with Xyletol which is TOXIC to dogs & cats.
Pumpkin but no pie. Unseasoned canned pumpkin is really good for pets, it helps their digestive system and is filling for pets on a diet. But who can stick to a diet this time of year?! Again, the rest of the pie should probably be avoided.
Bread & Rolls. They serve no real nutritional benefit but who else is going to eat the bread that sat on the table overnight and now doubles as a chew toy. (As long as it’s cooked, raw dough an be very dangerous when eaten)
Carrots and Green Beans. Served raw these veggies make a crunchy low-cal snack for dogs and dinner guests alike.
