Thanksgiving Safety Tips
To Keep Your Pets Safe!

As the holiday season quickly approaches, so do the increased number of visitors to our homes.  While in the human world we enjoy and are prepared for this time of year the same cannot be said for our furry friends. Many unfamiliar visitors and lots of different foods can be a hazard to our pets.

Here are some important things to remember before the celebrations begin:

Establish a Safe Place for Fido and Kitty
Although well meaning, visitors may cause your pet to become nervous and even frightened. As such, if you plan on having company to celebrate your Thanksgiving meal, you will want to have a safe place available where your pet can slip away to. Try to set up a nice space with their bed, crate, and favorite toys as well as a water bowl in the area.

Foods that are best not served to your pets:

  • Turkey Skin/ or possibly undercooked meats
  • Stuffing
  • Fruit
  • Onions
  • Chocolate
  • Alcohol, Coffee and Tea
  • Dough or Batter that is not yet cooked
  • Nuts
  • Greasy Foods

Sometimes our guests like to feed our curious pets from the table. Don’t be shy, ask them not to and explain that many of the foods we enjoy are not good for your pet and can make them seriously ill.

Clean up Time
It’s nice to lay back and relax after a big turkey feast, but don’t let the leftovers sit out for long.  Get some help and clean up promptly after the feast. This will discourage any curious scavenging that might happen around the table and in the kitchen.
Trash, the trash!  Empty your kitchen garbage as soon as you are done cleaning. That can be one of the most temping places for your friend to nose around. 

Exercise your Pet Before and After
Before your guests are due to arrive you may want to take that puppy out for a good walk/run/play.  Anything that works best to tire your pet out will do. Your pet will be satisfied and less anxious when your guests start to arrive. Finally, after dinner suggest a walk. You might be pleasantly surprised by the family joining in.  Your pet will be happy as can be!

As this wonderful holiday season approaches, we at Pet Rescue Rx cannot thank everyone enough for letting us support your favorite rescue/shelter throughout the year.   It is the least we can do for all of you who really are the ones saving lives and making a difference. 

Because of you, we have donated over $50,000 since we opened our webstore in June of 2013. 

We wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season. 

Glenn Buckley, DVM

Ask Dr. Buckley - Pet Insurance
Q: Dr. Buckley, I was thinking about purchasing health insurance for my pets.  What are your thoughts about pet insurance?

Ask Dr. Buckley - Puppy Mills
Q: Dr. Buckley, What exactly is a Puppy Mill?

Ask Dr. Buckley - Food Dilemma
Q: Dr. Buckley, I am overwhelmed by the selection of dog and cat foods available today. Some get a little expensive but I would like to feed my pets well. What do you recommend??

A: Just as with our diets, it is important to make good choices for your pets. You can apply the same basic understanding of what makes a good human diet to them: less processing, lower fat content, quality ingredients, less sugar. Click here to read the full article.
Ask Dr. Buckley - Anti-Freeze Poisoning
Q: Dr. Buckley, I have heard that antifreeze is toxic to dogs. What can you tell me about this?
