How to Keep Your Pet Safe During the Thanksgiving Season:

1. Think twice when tossing the turkey.
Be mindful when tossing the turkey carcass into the garbage, as it will be tempting to your dog. A carcass is full of many little bones that can cause a choking hazard, so instead, immediately remove the carcass from the home when you are done with it. Take it outside to the trash can so it is not inviting to your dog to explore. Along with being a choking hazard cooked bones can splinter and break in your dogs mouth cutting them or scraping the inside of their mouth, esophagus, and stomach.
