As the Holidays approach, so do the family members! Many will be gathering around the dinner table, snacking during the Cowboys game, or scrounging for leftovers the day after. While we are stuffing ourselves to the brink of explosion and opting for tossing back the pepto, we need to keep an eye out on what falls off the table... or cousin Eddy's fingers.
Things that might sound good to us, are not always good for our dogs to ingest. I highly suggest that you don't feed your pup table scraps. However, if you feel it's inevitable, especially with family being at your house and unaware of what Fido eats, print off this list mad by Proud Dog Mom of foods good and bad for your dogs from proud dog mom. Or at least make sure to put up the pets as the family rolls in.
It's not a bad idea for us to think about what we are taking in as well. Whether it's food, music, movies, or talk, let's remember what Paul said in Romans 12:1-2 "therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God - this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will."
If your pet takes in anything you are concerned about, always call your vet or if serious enough, contact the Pet Poison Helpline or call 855-764-7661 (fees do apply).
