As you're sitting around the table enjoying delicious holiday food, it may be tempting to offer some to your furry friends.

However, there are some dishes that aren't good for dogs to eat.

These foods can be shared with your dog:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Apples
  • Turkey meat (no bones, no skin)
  • Green beans
  • Plain peas
  • Pumpkin

These items should not be served to dogs:

  • Turkey bones, skin, and gravy
  • Stuffing
  • Casseroles
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Creamed peas
  • Chocolate, cookies, pies, and sweets (especially anything containing xylitol)
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Raisins and grapes
  • Onions, scallions, and garlic
  • Ham
  • Yeast dough
  • Fatty foods
  • Foods containing spices

If a pet gets into something they shouldn't, seek help immediately.

In the event of an emergency, call Pet Poison Control or your local vet.
