On Thanksgiving, we remind our readers that those foods that we enjoy may be toxic for your dog.  Remember to keep human food away from your dog, keep a lid on your garbage can and take the trash out after your meal, and remove all candy and nut dishes from low-lying coffee and end tables where your dog may access them.  Some examples of foods that are harmful and/or toxic to dogs includes, but is not limited to the following:


  • chocolate
  • raisins and grapes
  • macadamia nuts
  • onions and garlic
  • avocado
  • caffeine
  • Xylitol containing products (such as chewing gum)
  • alcoholic beverages
  • citrus
  • coconut water
  • dairy products
  • salty foods
  • fatty foods
  • yeast dough

Stay safe, and from our family to yours, our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving Day.
