Veterinarians Share Tips On Pet-Friendly Thanksgiving Table Scraps

(Columbus, OH) -- Veterinarians are advising pet owners to double-check before sharing any holiday leftovers with their furry companions this Thanksgiving. The SPCA recently released a list of common Thanksgiving foods that are generally safe to share with pets.

According to the list, turkey is acceptable as long as its boneless and well-cooked, but raw bread dough can be fatal, and pets should be kept away from desserts containing chocolate or raw eggs.

Vegetables like plain green beans are fine, but potato dishes with cheese, sour cream, onions, butter, or gravy in them should be avoided.

Pumpkin is also allowed, but vets say watch for too many added sugars and be careful of the fat content of some foods, which could cause pancreatitis.
