Happy holiday! Share your meal with your BFF

Happy Thanksgiving! We are closed for the holiday so that we can spend some time with our families and fur families (open Tuesday!) However, we thought we would send you some ideas of delectable homemade feast foods that you can share with your best furry friends!

In general, small amounts of delicious treats are best. If your pet eats raw, then go ahead and give them raw food… Otherwise, pets that eat kibble or canned best enjoy some cooked delicacies.

Do not serve your pet

  • Cooked bones, especially from poultry. Cooked bones are hard and fracture teeth and at worst, splinter in the digestive system. Stick to meat only for special occasions. 
  • Sugar, marshmallows, sweeteners, chocolate or xylitol (the last of which is deadly.)
  • Spicy foods. Avoid chilies and nutmeg. 
  • Refined carbs - cats and dogs are not meant to get buns and pie crusts, and gobs of buttery potatoes can make them feel bloated. 
  • Ham, pickles or any salty, or cured foods. 
  • Onions or garlic.

Delicious Treats for Cats

  • Turkey meat, cooked or raw (depending on their regular diet) and tofurkey.
  • Canned tuna or sardines in water (not oil).

Delicious Treats for Dogs

  • Turkey meat, cooked or raw (depending on their regular diet) and tofurkey.
  • Cooked non-seasoned sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, brussel sprouts (at least your dog will like them!)
  • Cooked or raw apples, blueberries, pears.

Enjoy your family time this weekend!

Yours in holistic pet health,
Dr. Jason, Arnica, Hannah, Dr. Pam, Jackie, Karina, Christine, Jess, Bethany, Jessie and Cortlan
