The Humane Society of Missouri says you should avoid feeding your pet anything they’re not used to eating. Just because your dog eats chicken, that doesn’t mean turkey won’t upset his belly.
Poultry bones can be harmful to dogs. Turkey and chicken bones are hollow and shatter easily, causing little shards to possibly get caught in your pet’s throat.
Fat drippings from your turkey pan are too much for your pet to handle. Don’t pour this over his regular food as a treat.
Pumpkin is a natural stool softener for dogs and cats. Need I say more?
Left out leftovers can be too much of a temptation for your pet. He could easily overeat when no one is watching.
Tell your guests about the pet rules when they arrive. That way they won’t try to get on your doggie’s good side through food.
