Gummy Bear Paws are a yummy Thanksgiving treat for your pets, according to Advertiser Sit ‘N Stay Pet Sitting:
As you prepare to enjoy your favorite feast on Thanksgiving on Thursday, Nov. 25, you may be wondering how to include your pets in your festive celebration. Perhaps, you are thinking about a thoughtful holiday gift to make for a fellow pet-lover? Either way, it is important to consider the nutritional side of sharing treats with pets. From a traditional thanksgiving feast, the American Kennel Club [https://www.akc.org/expert-advice/nutrition/thanksgiving-foods-to-share-with-your-dog-or-avoid/] reminds pet owners that the following are NOT recommended for dogs:
- Turkey bones, skin, and gravy
- Mashed potatoes
- Creamed peas
- Chocolate, cookies, pies, and sweets (especially anything containing xylitol, now under the name of Birch Root)
- Alcoholic beverages
- Raisins and grapes
- Onions, scallions, and garlic
- Yeast dough
- Fatty foods
- Foods containing spices
That being said, there are some foods to which you may treat your pets while you are enjoying your festive meal. Plain turkey meat with no bones, simple steamed or canned pumpkin with no spices, or even a dessert of simple frozen yogurt (no chocolate!) are good choices.
