Thanksgiving is all about the food, and the people you spend the holiday with. But some of that food doesn't mix so well with your furry family members. No matter how cute their puppy eyes are begging for some of that delicious Thanksgiving spread, there are certain things you want to make sure you DO NOT give to your dog.

Do NOT Feed Your Dog These Thanksgiving Foods:

  • Turkey Skin
  • Turkey Bones
  • Gravy
  • Stuffing
  • Sage
  • Raisins/Grapes
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Nutmeg
  • Nuts
  • Mushrooms
  • Fat Trimmings
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Chocolate
  • Candied Yams
  • Butter
  • Bread Dough
  • Alcohol

Things your pup can safely have:

  • White meat from the Turkey
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Mashed Potatoes (sans butter)
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Pumpkin
  • Apple Slices

Of course, this is all based on your own pet as well. Even on the list of things dogs can safely have, I know my dog Norman has a sensitive tummy and can't handle people food. We learned that when a friend's dad once grilled my 13-pound dog his own cheeseburger. That wasn't a fun day after. You know your pet, and I'm sure you only want what is the safest and best for them. Make sure you give them an extra pet and hug for me this Thanksgiving!
