What should dogs not eat at Thanksgiving?

Some of the foods you should avoid during thanksgiving are meals with xylitol, excess carbs, scallions, bones, grapes, raisins, chocolates, onions, garlic, seasoning, fats, and lactose. Examples of such meals would be the skin or bone of the thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, dark chocolates, grape or raisin salads, and cake.

Can dogs eat cheese?

Most dogs are lactose intolerant, but cheese has less lactose than milk. So, they can enjoy minimal or moderate cheese servings during thanksgiving. Moreover, cheese has calcium, proteins, vitamin B-complex, essential fatty acids, and vitamin A. You can opt to give your dog low-fat cheese like soft goat cheese, cottage cheese, or mozzarella since they have lower sodium and fat content.

Can dogs eat carrots?

Your dog can have carrots during and after Thanksgiving. Carrot is a healthy snack that is low in calories and rich in B-carotene, vitamin A, fiber, and potassium. However, when serving your pooch carrots, it is safe to cut it to reduce the chunk size and avoid potential choking hazards. Additionally, carrots are great for your dog’s teeth and coat health.
