It’s that time of year again, the holidays are upon us, which means lots of food and good company. But what you may not know is that, the holidays also bring plenty of potential hazards for your furry family members.
Thanksgiving may be filled with delicious foods for you and I, but for to your pets they can be very toxic. Be sure to keep the table scraps away from fido and toss them straight into the trash because those savory treats can cause horrible pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is the medical term for sudden and painful inflammation of the pancreas causing vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
Here is a list of food and drink pets’ must not have this holiday season…
Grapes and raisins
Xylitol (found in sugar free foods)
Onions, leeks, chives, and garlic
Unbaked yeast bread dough
