the meal deal
If you can’t resist including Fido in the feasting, pile his plate – a small one! – with safe, vet-approved victuals, including white-meat turkey (no skin), boiled broccoli or carrots and canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling). Ingredients to avoid: onions and garlic, which have toxins that can cause anemia; and sage, which contains essential oils that can upset your pet’s tummy. Talk to your vet in the weeks before the big day to get a proper sense of portions so your pup doesn’t unintentionally overindulge.
