Our Pets and the Holidays post mentioned in the letter to our clients is not quite finished. But here is a tip that particularly pertains to Thanksgiving.
The Thanksgiving turkey or chicken will leave a lot of tantalizing bones. Please don’t feed them to your pet, no matter how cutely they look at you.
Beware of cooked steak bones, too. Cooked bones can splinter and small, sharp bones or bone chips can lodge in your pet’s throat, stomach or intestinal tract.
If you’d like to give your pet a Thanksgiving bone treat, please read our post on feeding raw bones. We also have an additional post on the topic of raw bones. It contains a few more general tips as well as information for people with multiple dog households.
The most important tip of all — Don’t forget your after meal nap!
— Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving —
