What you shouldn’t feed your dog during the holidays… or at any time.


Dr. Tina Wismer, senior director of the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, advises that foods high in fat like avocado, coconut/coconut oil, nuts, citrus, milk and other forms of dairy can upset your dog’s stomach. Eggs, meat and bones that are not fully cooked can also cause salmonella and e-coli. On the extreme end, certain sweeteners can cause liver failure, and having too much salt could result in seizures.  Some human food is fine, in restricted amounts, she says. Meat, vegetables and bread “are fine” as treats, but dogs should be getting at least 90 percent of their diet from pet food. Learn more at To keep from having a pupsetting Thanksgiving, don’t give your dogs these foods or drinks
