Thanksgiving Foods: What Not To Give Your Pets

Some popular holidays foods are toxic to pets

Animal experts are reminding pet owners that some popular Thanksgiving foods are toxic to your furry family members. 

Veterinarians with MSPCA Angell are especially concerned about the following ingredients: 

  • Chocolate (can spark heart rate, cause anxiety)
  • Yeast dough (can rise in the stomach, cause severe discomfort) 
  • Garlic, onions and chives (can significantly damage red blood cells, cause anemia, kidney failure)
  • Fatty or spicy table food (bones can splinter, cause damage or blockage in gastrointestinal tract, lead to inflammation of pancreas, food poisoning, tremors, seizures)
  • Grapes and raisins (can lead to kidney failure) 
  • Macadamia nuts (can produce vomiting, weakness, depression, lack of coordination and tremors) 
  • Raw meat (bacterial infections)
