Thanksgiving Toxic Foods


Thanksgiving Toxic Foods

Hi, my name is Dr. John Bevan. I'm a surgeon here at Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Emergency Hospital.

You may be feeling thankful towards your pet, but sharing the feast isn't good for them. Here are six toxic human foods you just can't feed Fido. Poultry bones, cooking causes Turkey bones to dehydrate and become brittle. This can puncture your pets stomach and cause catastrophic damage.

Turkey skin is too fatty for your pet. It can cause pancreatitis, which leads to vomiting, diarrhea, and weakness.

Onions and garlic contain thiosulfate, which causes red blood cells to burst in cats and dogs, and can lead to hemolytic anemia.

Certain nuts. Pets have trouble digesting almonds, walnuts, and pecans. These nuts are too big for smaller animals, and can cause intestinal obstruction.

Unbaked bread dough can be extremely dangerous for dogs and cats. If eaten the unbaked bread dough expands in the warm, moist environment of your pets stomach, which can result in dangerous twisting of the stomach called gastric dilation volvulus.

When serious illnesses do happen, CTVSEH is there for you. Their specialists and doctors offer a range of in depth surgical procedures, testing equipment and diagnostic capabilities.
