Thanksgiving Hazards for your Dog

Pedigree's Newsletter had a great article about Thanksgiving Hazards for your pet. Below are some of the highlights. For the full article go here.

Never give your dog poultry bones—they can splinter easily and stick in the esophagus, stomach, or intestines.
Make sure your pet can't access food left on counters or tables. After you've cleaned the kitchen, take the garbage out and dispose of it in a secure place where no pets can get into it.
Watch the door as guests enter and leave. An open door is an invitation for a dog to flee a busy house for the world outside. So as guests arrive and leave, keep an eye on your dog—or, if he’s shy and upset by company, keep him in a quieter part of the house during noisy festivities.
