Sad DachshundEnjoy That Turkey Dinner But Keep It From Pets
“It’s not a good thing to give your pets table scraps or things they’re not familiar with that can cause an upset stomach and diarrhea and things you don’t want to deal with during the holiday season…”

Table Scraps Can Be Deadly For Dogs
“Many people think table scraps are a special treat, but some can be deadly for dogs. Cesar Millan, host of National Geographic’s the Dogs Whisperer says there are some things you should definitely avoid feeding your pets. High-fat foods, like turkey skin, are hard for dogs to digest, and can lead to pancreatitis. Turkey bones can also be dangerous. Unlike rawhide bones, cooked poultry bones are brittle and can splinter easily. Onions can also be a problem. High levels of onion ingestion in dogs and cats can cause a life-threatening blood disorder.”

Pets Shouldn’t Partake of Holiday Feast
“It’s OK to give them turkey, as long as you remove the skin and rinse the meat. Pet owners should avoid giving their dogs the fat and gristle from meat. Remember, if you wouldn’t eat it, neither should your pet.”
