The do's and do nots of your pet's holiday splurging.
Thanksgiving Do's and Do Not's
This is a festive time of year and we want to splurge on all the goodies that the season can bring. We want to give you a few tips on food safety for our four-legged friends!
As always, we encourage you to only feed your pet, pet food. But we know that during this time, it doesn't always happen. Certain foods can upset your pet's GI track, or worse, poisen them.
Fat is always a big no no for your pet. Any types of fat outside of their normal diet, such as but not limited to; gravy's, turkey skin, deserts, bread, butter, lard, etc can lead to acute pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is a disease in which your pet's pancreas becomes inflamed. This can happen with certain fatty foods. Other GI upsets include vomitting and diarrhea. We encourage you to stick with your pet's normal diet.
We will be closed Thanksgiving day but will open for normal business hours on Friday, November 29th!
