View Full Version : A Seasonal warning

Just a note for any new pet owners out there. You probably know chocolate
and onions arent good for pets, but there are other things to watch for.

As we all fix up lots of dressing and Thanksgiving things in the USA, and
elsewhere folks are thinking about Xmas or some same time holiday, keep in
mind that your pets are not as salt tolerant as humans. Also, if onions are
bad for them, stuffing normally comes with lots of onion powder in it, so
you would not want to feed them that.

Another danger is poulty bones. They are soft and crunchy and can hurt your
pet or choke it. Never give poultry bones to dogs or cats. Scraps of
turkey however, are ok ;-)
