We love our furry friends and sometimes we just want them to enjoy some holiday food like we do. However, there are some foods that we shouldn’t give our dogs. Here is a list that are “no no’s” for puppy.

Not safe for pets

  • Turkey bones, skin, and gravy
  • Stuffing
  • Casseroles
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Creamed peas
  • Chocolate, cookies, pies, and sweets (especially anything containing xylitol)
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Raisins and grapes
  • Onions, scallions, and garlic
  • Ham
  • Yeast dough
  • Fatty foods
  • Foods containing spices

If your dog snatches something off the table while your back is turned, you can contact the Pet Poison Helpline for guidance on what to do next.

Safe to feed your dogs

  • Sweet potatoes that don’t contain any added ingredients
  • Potatoes that are boiled or baked with no butter, sour cream, salt, or pepper, served in moderation
  • Apples that are cut around the core. Large amounts of apple seeds can be toxic
  • Turkey meat (no bones, no skin) as long as it’s not prepared with any seasoning
  • Green beans without any added ingredients like butter or spices
  • Plain peas are fine, but creamed peas should be avoided
  • Pumpkin can help with digestive health and it’s great for a dog’s skin and coat, but if feeding canned pumpkin, make sure it’s not the pre-spiced pie mix
  • Dessert is an option if you pick something healthy like frozen yogurt
