Our annual day of thanks. Happy Turkey Day!

It is extremely important is refrain from feeding your pets any table scraps. Below, are some holiday items in particular to avoid:

  • Turkey & Turkey Skin – Even the smallest consumption may cause a disease in your pet called Pancreatitis. Give your pet a special dog or cat treat while you are enjoying your delicious turkey.
  • Chocolate – Some chocolate is more toxic than other, but it’s best to steer clean of the decadent dessert.
  • Raisins & Grapes – Don’t ever give your pet raisins or grapes. Even the tiniest amount in the biggest animal could send your pet kidney failure. If consumed, seek veterinary treatment immediately.
  • THE TRASH – Keep it locked up both on holidays and everyday. Our garbage has lots of stuff to keep away from our precious pets.
