Naughty and Nice: Foods Pets Can and Cannot Eat From a Holiday Feast
By now, many holiday shoppers have completed or nearly completed their holiday gift shopping. With gifts purchased and ready to wrap, the focus will shift to planning for holiday meals. Whether they sneak a piece of turkey from the kid’s table when no one is looking or a relative feeds them unwanted scrapes from their plate, pets are sure to get a taste of the feast.
Over half of America’s pets will get treated with holiday meals or leftovers, according to VetIQ’s Holiday Fun Survey. Sixty-five percent of pets will get a bite from a holiday feast, and 11 percent of pet owners think their pets will take something from the table when no one is looking.
While many pet owners may be inclined to indulge their pets with holiday treats, it can be hard to keep harmful food items out of reach. As a reminder to consumers, Petco compiled a list of what’s naughty and nice to feed pets this season. The complete list can be viewed in the infographic below.
