Today you find yourself with an excess of food, it’s a wonderful problem to have. Especially for your doggie.
1. Pour a bit gravy over your dog’s food.
Don’t use much here, gravy can be very fatty which can cause problems, but in small doses is a great treat. Stir it into dry food and watch them gobble it down.
2. Tear the turkey into little pieces and give it to them.
Your dog has probably smelt the turkey by now and is already imagining how amazing it is. When giving turkey to your dog remember to remove ALL bones from the meat. Turkey bones can splinter and cause damage to the intestines. Skin has been linked to pancreatitis. Stick to the lean stuff and you’ll have no problems!
Hooman, I require your thumbs for a moment. I need this skinned and deboned.
3. Mashed Puptatoes
Giving your dog mashed potatoes is a great holiday treat, just be careful of what you make them with. Butter, sour cream and onions are all deal breakers.
Tip: If you know beforehand that you’re going to be giving your dog potatoes. Separate it before you put all the butter and sour cream in so they don’t miss out.
4. Cranberry Sauce
You can give your dogs a bit of cranberry sauce if you want. Just make sure the sugar content isn’t too high. It’s a bit of an odd request but your dog might end up loving it. You can put this on top of other treats for a double reward! Imagine a doggie imagining cranberry sauce milkbones.
Human, may I please have a dab of that gooey stuff?
Our doggies are primarily carnivores, but pour a tiny bit of gravy on those veggies and your dog won’t be complaining. Carrots and green beans are the best for this. Remember, no onions! Who says Thanksgiving is only for the hoomans?
Mmmm, orange bones.
Do you have any ideas for leftovers for your pup? We’d love to hear them.
