Pet Safety Tips for Thanksgiving

Posted by Southtowns Animal Hospital on November 13, 2020

As Thanksgiving is fast approaching, at Southtowns Animal Hospital we want to make sure that all members of the family have a safe and healthy holiday season. With this in mind, here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving tips for pets.

Give your pet a safe space to relax away from holiday commotion and activities to avoid unnecessary stress.

Don’t let your pet eat these Thanksgiving foods that are dangerous to their health:

  • Onions & Garlic
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate & Candy (pay attention to your baking chocolate)
  • Turkey bones
  • Fatty Foods (these can cause pancreatitis) Remember that turkey is high in fat
  • Bread dough
  • Grapes & raisins

Secure your garbage so your pets that cannot access it

Before traveling, make sure that you double check your pets chip

We are so grateful for all the pet parents who trust Southtowns Animal Hospital with their veterinary needs. Happy Thanksgiving!
