How to Share Thanksgiving Dinner With Your Pet

If you’d like to share Thanksgiving dinner with your animal companion, this is entirely doable as long as you prepare your feast with your dog or cat in mind.

There are many traditional human holiday foods that can be safely fed to pets in moderation, including certain vegetables, fruits and nuts.

Dogs and cats should only be offered certain safe people foods in their purest, simplest form — no butter, spices, sugar or other additives.

Thanksgiving Safety Tips

At this time of year when we reflect on all the things we are most thankful for, pets always come to mind. Pets bring so much to our lives. I bet you could ask any of our pet parents what they are thankful for and inevitably they will respond with some version of a list that includes their pets. They just seem to automatically know when you are having a good day or a bad day. They sense when you are sad or feeling lonely, and let’s not forget the unconditional love that they dole out every time you walk through the door. So, on your list of things to be grateful for this year, make sure you include your pets! Happy Thanksgiving!

Canned pumpkin can soothe your pet’s tummy and help get them back to normal. Here’s some information on why dogs sometimes have stomach issues, and how pumpkin can get their digestive systems working as they should.
