Thanksgiving Holiday Hazards to Your Pet


Keep your pets safe during Thanksgiving!Keep your pet safe during Thanksgiving - avoid these potential hazards:

  • Bones - Turkey, chicken, and other small animal bones are very different from the large bones you find at the pet store. These small bones splinter easily and can cause serious internal damage if swallowed, so NEVER give them to your pet.
     
  • Hot containers - Your dog or cat will most likely become curious when they smell something cooking. Keep an eye on hot containers so that your pet does not tip them over and get burned.
