For Thanksgiving, Help Spread the Word on Food Safety for Dogs
Thanksgiving and Hanukkah are only a week away and whether you're celebrating only one holiday or both, chances are there will be at least one very eager dog friend underfoot trying to see if she can use an old Jedi mind trick to get the turkey or the gelt from the table and into her belly. Much to your dog friend's delight, there are some holiday people foods she can have that won't make her sick (or, at worse, kill her).
We've got a couple great articles from our vet, Dr. Eric Barchas, with advice on what and how much you can feed your dog from the holiday dinner table, along with what you should definitely not give your dog (unless you hate her, which you don't). We also have some tips for how to keep your dog calm and safe when your guests arrive.
But in case you want an easy visual, we've got one right here for ya!
Check out this handy-dandy infographic -- and what's even better about it is you can share it with all your human friends.
And if you want to get really specific about it, here are the parts of the turkey you can or can't share with your dog pal.
Will you be sharing these infographics? Where?
