If there's one thing that's more abundant than presents during the holidays, it's food. Rest assured that your pets have noticed this too — and they want in on the action. No matter how convincing their puppy dog eyes are, keep table scraps where they belong: on the table. There are a lot of human foods that are just not good for animals.
While many pet owners are already aware that chocolate can wreak serious havoc on a dog’s digestive tract, candies, cookies or other processed treats are also bad, as well as the fatty trimmings from the holiday feast. Eggnog, cake, grapes and onions are also big no-nos.
We know it's difficult, but you should try your best to keep your pet strictly on his normal diet. If you want to indulge him, give him a treat — one that's made especially for animals.
