GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Veterinarians are warning pet owners not to feed them too many table scraps this Thanksgiving.
Doctors say certain bones can cut or obstruct your pets’ insides causing major damage. Vets say not to feed your pet any food with onion or garlic. Both seasonings contain sulfides which can cause destruction of red blood cells and is toxic to animals. Doctor Jessica Girard says it’s fine to feed your pets some, but don’t over-do it.
“Don’t feed them any fatty foods like ham and obviously no chocolate. If you really have an urge to give your dog something because it’s the holiday, a little white meat turkey with the skin off or green beans that don’t have seasoning on it,”Dr.Girard said.
Dr. Girard says if your animal starts to feel sick, immediately take him to the vet.
