The next holiday that can have negative consequences for your pet is Thanksgiving. If turkey is part of your Thanksgiving celebration then make sure you know the facts before you sneak some turkey scraps under the table to him.
* Feed the "lean" meat - white meat without skin and seasoning.
* Avoid the fat, skin and rich areas such as the legs.
* Limit your dog to small amounts of the meat at a time.
* Do not give your dog any turkey bones.
If your dog eats the too much of the rich turkey fat and meat it can cause pancreatitis, which is a painful, inflamed pancreas.
Signs to look for if your dog ate too much rich turkey meat:
- Hunched back.
- Repeated vomiting.
- Pain or distention of the abdomen (dog appears uncomfortable or bloated)
- Loss of appetite.
