Thanksgiving Day Food That Can Harm Your Dog
Unfortunately, some Thanksgiving foods can be dangerous and even lethal to dogs. Here’s a list of foods your dog shouldn’t eat for the holidays:
1. Turkey skin
Your dog should avoid eating high fat foods because they are difficult to digest. They can lead to pancreatitis and symptoms include vomiting, abdominal pain and lethargy.
2. Cooked Bones
You should never feed your dog bones because they can splinter in the dog’s digestive tract.
3. Onions and Garlic
They contain sulfides which are poisonous to dogs and can cause anemia.
Naturally, you should never give your dog alcohol, particularly beer because it contains hops which can be deadly to dogs.
Walnuts and macadamia nuts can cause a toxic reaction called macadamia nut toxicosis. The most common symptoms of nut poisoning include vomiting, tremors, fever, weakness and elevated heart rate.
Nutmeg can cause seizures, central nervous system problems and even death.
Sage contains essential oils that cause stomach problems.
8. Chocolate, Dough and Batter
We guess that everyone knows by now that chocolate is not good for your dog, but not many people know that dough causes bloating and severe stomach pain. Also, both dough and batter contain raw eggs which may contain Salmonella.
