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.

4. Alcohol

Naturally, you should never give your dog alcohol, particularly beer because it contains hops which can be deadly to dogs.

5. Nuts

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.

6. Nutmeg

Nutmeg can cause seizures, central nervous system problems and even death.

7. Sage

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.
