How to cook a hot meal for your pet this Thanksgiving

Posted by Kristi Palma November 19, 2013 11:55 AM

Your pet can eat a hot dinner on Thanksgiving day, too, complete with turkey, green beans, squash, and even cranberries.

Dr. Jyl Rubin, a veterinarian and owner of six dogs, demonstrates how you can make a feast for your pets this Thanksgiving that doesn't involve dog food. All you need is a crockpot and some of the same meat and vegetables the family eats.

The top Thanksgiving foods…are they safe for pets?

Posted by Stephanie St. Martin November 19, 2012 11:02 AM



Thanksgiving is a time for football, family and, of course, food. With a cornucopia of guests -- and their kids -- descending on your house, there will be lots of extra people trying to pass a tasty treat to your cat or dog. They may have the best of intentions, but "people food" isn't always the best for your four-legged friend.

To keep things safe, read this list about which Turkey Day food favorites are safe for pets to eat and which ones may leave you cleaning up a mess -- and I don't mean the dishes.

Going to someone's house? Even if your pet is great with table scraps, it doesn't mean that your relative's cat can tolerate the same amount. Always check with the owner before you offer a pet any additional food.
