Nothing compliments the holidays like a good meal. The smell of turkey cooking in the oven…appetizers and side dishes…or even pumpkin pie…YUM!
As pet parents we may feel obligated to share that good food with our furry family members; however we need to keep in mind that everything good for us isn’t necessarily good for them. Foods that are high in fat or those sugary sweets can cause major stomach aches which can lead to vomiting, diarrhea, and possibly a trip to the emergency room! To keep our fur babies safe we shouldn’t share any bones or table scraps with our pets. Continue to feed them their normal diet & try and keep them on their regular feeding schedule even as you may be entertaining a houseful of guests.
If you really want to share something with your pet Lean treats are a healthy option! They are soft & chewy, yummy & also low fat. If your pet hasn’t tried them yet—you should really check them out! Lean treats are available for both cats and dogs.
