Dr. Tecla Myrick from the Alachua County Animal Services talks about pet safety for this upcoming Thanksgiving.
Keep these food items out of reach of little paws:
-Fat, skin, gravy, ham, stuffing (these things can cause GI upset and pancreatitis
Other toxic foods to keep out of reach:
-Fruit seeds and pits
To avoid upsetting your pets around visitors, keep them in a quiet area.
Be sure they have their collars with tags and ID and microchip in case of a bolter when visitors leave doors open.
