Remember, this is not an exhaustive list and your pet may have health issues that may or may not affect what he or she can eat. As always, call us if you have any questions! We will be happy to let you know if your cat or dog can have something special this holiday season.
Just remember: everything in moderation and WATCH your guests to make sure they are not giving Fido or Fluffy anything they shouldn't have!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Lifetime Pet Centers!
