As you prepare for Thanksgiving next week, make room for one more at the table.....your dog! After all, your dog is family too.
If you decide to let your dog feast with you next Thursday, decide if you will make him a special meal of his own or share your meal with him. You want to make him something out of the ordinary just as your meal will be that day. If you choose to share your meal, turkey can be given to your dog in small quantities and make sure there are no bones. Limit your use of salt and butter when making mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and veggies. All good for your furry friend, but again in small amounts.
After you have finished eating, take your dog for a walk. Odds are you both ate a little heavier than usual and a walk will help with digestion. It is also a good time to give your dog a break from your family members and/or small children. You may need a breather from your family and what better way to get out of the house on Thanksgiving Day?
Just remember: Stuff the Turkey....NOT THE DOG!
