Protect Your Pet This Thanksgiving with These Tips from a Vet near Jennings


With Thanksgiving coming up, you are probably thinking about how you can include your pet in the festivities. What animal wouldn't appreciate a day overflowing with delicious treats?  Sadly, Thanksgiving Day could be a dangerous holiday for cats and dogs. Many of the foods and ingredients humans really love are poisonous to our pets. The vets at Country Club Veterinary Clinic don't want your cat or dog to get sick this holiday season. Read on to discover some essential pet safety tips from a vet near Jennings! 

Skip the Onions and Garlic

The allium family includes garlic and onions, as well as scallions, leeks, etc. These foods can, unfortunately, lead to anemia in pets. Some pets are more sensitive to onions, garlic, etc. than others, so we don't recommend sharing them with your four-legged family members. 

Toss Bones and Fat in the Garbage Where They Belong

Most pets enjoy bones, fat drippings, and gravy, but sadly, they aren’t safe treats. Both raw and cooked bones can become lodged in the throat or digestive tract or cause stomach upset or perforations. Excessive fat consumption could cause pancreatitis, too. When fixing your four-legged best friend's plate, stick to lean turkey. 

Save Dessert for the Humans

Some holiday desserts contain things that are dangerous for cats and dogs. Chocolate, raisins, grapes, and xylitol can make pets very ill. Even small amounts of alcohol in desserts or unbaked break is dangerous. And sugar is not healthy for pets anyway.  Protect your pet by saving the desserts for your human friends and family members.

Schedule an Appointment with a Vet near Jennings

If your canine companion or feline friend gets sick or hurt this holiday season, contact a skilled vet near Jennings right away. Additionally, it's wise to bring your dog or cat in for a wellness check prior to the hectic holiday season. Contact us today to make an appointment for your pet.
