Tips to Keep Your Puppy Safe on Thanksgiving

 

SAN ANGELO, TX – Thanksgiving is here and that can mean a big day for not only your family but your dogs as well. To save yourself some money at the vet and unneeded stress check out these holiday tips for your animal.

  1. DON’T GIVE A DOG A BONE

He’s looking up at you with his big brown eyes begging for the bones left on the plate and it’s easy to give in, thinking just one won’t do any harm. Small bones can end up lodged in wind pipes or causing worse damage when passing through their systems. Find a suitable doggy treat for them instead.

  1. LEFTOVERS LOCKDOWN

Funnily enough, lots of dog related incidents over the holiday involve dogs who decide to ‘help themselves’ to leftovers which are left lying around. Dogs are unable to handle chocolate, raisins and many other human foods, so make sure these are kept well out of reach of Fido this year.

  1. DON’T FORGET TO EXERCISE THEM

Even on a holiday it’s important to make sure that dogs are well exercised to make sure they don’t cause chaos in the home. Take your furry friend out for a walk before dinner to make sure he’s calm and relaxed and not causing mischief while you all eat.

Everyone wants to talk about the physical dangers to animals, particularly medical ailments, when they talk about pet safety. No one wants to broach the subject of psychological health and radicalization when it comes to the pets living in their own homes.
