How to Have a Pet-Safe Thanksgiving

main image

Veterinarians report an increase in emergency visits over Thanksgiving weekend due to pets ingesting table scraps they shouldn't. Onions, garlic, chocolate and alcohol are toxic. Ingested turkey bones can splinter and tear up your pup's digestive track. Fats from gravy, butter and turkey skin can even cause pancreatitis in your pet!

Besides food safety issues, there are other things to consider to ensure the holiday is happy for everyone. For instance, do you have a safe place for your pet to retreat to if they are overwhelmed by guests? How about toys or chewies to work off any anxiety from the hustle and bustle?

To address these concerns, we've created a gift bundle to make Thanksgiving safe, fashionable and fun! Consider getting one as a host/hostess gift when visiting a home with a resident dog. It will have much more of a "wow factor" than other offerings. 

Baxter's Delight

Your dog will be happy to stay out of the turkey when they get their very own treats and turkey to play with in the Baxter's Thanksgiving Delight!

This fun gift bundle includes a turkey roasting pan, a football to watch the games with, a 4" Beef Center Bone from Jones Natural Pet Chews, an 8" stuffed pumpkin dog toy, a bag of My Doggy Bites CranApple Dog Treats, an 11" Turkey Gobbler toy to keep busy during dinner, Distinctive Dogs Sweet Potato Carrot Cake treat for dessert and a festive bandana (styles may vary) to wear all day! 

Other fun stuff

Are you going to participate in a Turkey Trot to run off excess calories? Enhance the festive mood and let your attention-loving pet be the talk of the town with one of our Thanksgiving costumes. They will be warm and ready for a fun photo op dressed in their holiday best!
