The holidays are a time for people to come together and celebrate, including the family pet(s). Your pet is a part of your family, so shouldn’t they get a “place” at the dinner table, too?
Of course they aren’t going to eat at the table or consume all of the same foods as humans. However, you could give them extra attention and special treatment during the season of giving.
Your dog has been smelling that turkey for hours on end, and they are coveting a taste. There’s no need to make them beg for a scrap. Let’s face it, no matter how many times you eat leftovers, at some point you just end up throwing the rest out.
Make good use of all that yummy extra food with the ultimate guide to holiday leftovers for pets. Our friends at Personal Creations compiled a list of foods to share and to avoid with regard to your furry friend. In addition to the guide on the Personal Creations website, see the infographics below which Katie and her team have shared.
Happy and Safe Thanksgiving to you and your family, including your furry ones!
