Healthy Holiday Eating For Your Dog

  Posted on   by   No comments


We all tend to overindulge during the holiday, our dogs included.  There’s a tendency to give dogs a taste of this and that, but doing so can lead to digestive upset for them.  The November 2012 issue of Whole Dog Journal has a list of healthy holiday food substitutions for your dog.  Check some of them out below:

Feed This:

  • Skinless turkey meat instead of turkey skin or drippings
  • Green beans instead of green bean casserole with onions
  • Berries instead of berry pie
  • Canned pumpkin instead of pumpkin pie
  • Plain yogurt instead of whipped cream or other milk products
  • Apple slices instead of apple pie
  • Plain mashed potatoes instead of potatoes with butter and/or sour cream
  • Lean ham meat instead of fatty ham scraps
  • Broccoli instead of broccoli casserole with cheese
  • Low fat gravy instead of gravy made with drippings
  • Unsweetened applesauce instead of applesauce with added sugar
  • Cinnamon instead of nutmeg
  • Giblets instead of cooked bones
  • Plain sweet potato instead of candied yams with marshmallows
