Don't forget that Thanksgiving can be a dangerous day for the family dog.

There are a couple things to be aware of:

  • Keep an eye on those left out leftovers. Fido can jump on the table and wolf down whatever's there, which could easily make him sick.
  • It's tempting to give the dog treats from the table, but that's not the best idea. Turkey and turkey skin are not good for dogs.
  • Also watch out for grapes because they can be toxic.
  • Be aware that anything hard can break a tooth -- that includes ice cubes and bully sticks.
