Thanksgiving Dog Treat!

Happy Thanksgiving Dog

This Thanksgiving, why not treat our #FBFs to a treat of their own?

Rather than leftovers (which may not be the smartest move), prepare your four-legged best friend something extra this year! 

Here are some rules to avoid when it comes to cooking for your FBF:

1. Salt: avoid anything over salted. Sodium can be harmful to dogs’ health and can cause vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea.

2. Cooking Oils: While many oils like vegetable oil aren’t toxic to dogs, it can still make them sick. Try to avoid food cooked heavily in any oils.

3. Dairy: Excess dairy can cause an upset stomach in your pup.

4. Certain Fruits: While some fruits like apples and melons may not harm your dog, others like cherries, lemon, lime, or other citrus fruits can cause a serious upset stomach.

With that said, keeping it simple is what it’s all about. Here’s an easy, no-bake recipe to make for your dog this Thanksgiving! If you have a blender or kitchen aid on hand, that’s even easier! This recipe has health benefits in all ingredients – including a little help from YUP PUP!
