Food to Avoid Giving Your Pets on Thanksgiving

Foods not safe for pets to eat on Thanksgiving Keep the phone number to the Pet Poison Helpline (855-764-7661) as well as the number and address for your local emergency veterinarian handy.

Thanksgiving is just one day away so please keep your animals safe. Ask your guests to not feed your pets table scraps or ask you before they do to let them know what is safe to feed them. Turkey is not normally bad for dogs, but the “trimmings” and other ingredients included in the dishes on the table are often not tolerated by dogs and in some cases can be toxic. This list is on the DO NOT FEED PETS list:

  • Turkey skin
  • Tukey drippings
  • Turkey bones
  • Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Mushrooms
  • Grapes
  • Raisins
  • Sage
  • Pumpkin Pie – May contain Xylitol
  • Chocolate
  • Alcohol 

Here are a few items that are considered safe to feed your pets if you decide to let them share in the festivities:

  • Turkey meat
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
  • Potatoes
  • Apples

Pets do not know what is good and safe for them so it is up to us to keep them happy and healthy. Always keep the phone number to the Pet Poison Helpline (855-764-7661) as well as the number and address for your local emergency veterinarian in a place where all household members can see it.
