Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Wilkinson Animal Hospital!
We often see gastrointestinal problems after holiday feasting in our patients. Some can actually be pretty severe and require hospitalization.
So, please keep your pet’s diet the same during the holiday. Especially avoid fatty treats and meats. ANY food change can spark an intestinal or stomach upset that can lead to illness.
The stress of extra visitors and company may also contribute. Give your pet a safe haven away from the crowd if he or she is a nervous wreck.
Definitely do NOT feed chocolate, grapes or raisins as these are toxic.
Have a safe holiday!
P.S. If your pet is stressed during the holiday from visitors or otherwise, please give us a call 704-824-9876. We have some natural solutions to handling this.
