If your household is anything like mine, your dogs are a part of your family. You might be inclined to even prepare your pup a Thanksgiving meal of their own. Surely your dog would be highly thankful to get a Thanksgiving meal. even if it is just a couple of tiny, healthy pieces of leftovers from your plate.

Let's start with what you shouldn't feed your pup on Thanksgiving, or any day for that matter:

  • Turkey skin, drippings, and gravy
  • Turkey twine
  • Turkey bones
  • Stuffing
  • Sage
  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • Garlic
  • Paprika
  • Nutmeg
  • Mushrooms
  • Fat trimmings and other fatty foods
  • Corn on the cob
  • Candied yams
  • Bread dough
  • Alcohol

There are some great options for your dog when it comes to Thanksgiving that they can eat:

  • Turkey - boneless and well cooked
  • Plain pumpkin
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Carrots
  • Apples

I'll be sure to serve up a small Thanksgiving dish for our fur baby this Thanksgiving. She'll be more than happy to eat it too.
