Happy Thanksgiving!

We just want to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving! Remember to keep your pets safe, avoid giving them dangerous tablescraps. Turkey with the skin may have spices on it like onion and garlic that are bad for your pets organs, and the bones can cause them to choke or splinter and cause internal lacerations, cranberry sauce has high volumes of sugar and watch out for pumpkin pie! it usually contains nutmeg which is toxic to pets. Instead of these types of food offer up raw carrots, broccoli, a bit of well-cooked white meat without the skin, tell your visiting guests — especially the kids — not to feed your pets from their plates. Explain why. •Feed pets only reasonable amounts of any safe people-food treats. •Be sure you know what ingredients are in the foods you’re letting your pets eat.
