Healthy Thanksgiving Treats for Your Dog: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 137

turkeydinnerLet’s talk turkey! How will your dog be spending Thanksgiving? We will be the first to admit that like many dogs, Sushi & Espy will be spending Thanksgiving as begging scavengers on the prowl for dropped Turkey morsel with all the fixings. Although we do not encourage owners to feed their dogs table scraps, we understand that many pet owners want to include their dogs in the Thanksgiving feast since it only happens once a year.

It can be hard to resist a dog’s soulful eyes begging for just one little gobble-full of turkey, besides we are only human. Wafting alluring aromas of sweet potatoes, herb-filled stuffing, roasted turkey & gravy will prevent even the most well mannered pup can’t help but to beg for a tiny bite or steal a drumstick. So if you do have the hankering to let your dog partake in the Thanksgiving feast here are some healthy and safe options.

Here are a few healthy Thanksgiving choices for dogs:

  • White meat turkey without the skin
  • Plain baked or sweet potatoes without the skin
  • Steamed carrots, broccoli, or string beans without any butter, sauce or seasoning
  • Salt-free canned chicken broth
  • Plain canned pumpkin, but not the pumpkin pie filling
  • Sliced raw apples

Check out our Festive & Delicious Merrick Canned Dog Food your canine companion can enjoy all year round!

Common Thanksgiving Foods Pets Need To Avoid: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 136

turkeyAlthough the Thanksgiving menu is chalk full of delicious bounty for humans to enjoy. The smell of roast turkey in the air makes it even more tempting to share some of your food scraps with your salivating, begging loyal dog. If your dog is like our pugs Sushi & Espy then you will probably find their hungry eyes glued to the oven door watching their favorite cooking show “All Things Turkey”. Truth be told there are a few thanksgiving foods that are dangerous and potentially deadly to pets. Here is a list of foods that your pet should avoid at all cost courtesy of Dr. Bill Craig, DVM.

Bones - Many pet owners want to hand over left over bones from the turkey, ham or steak to the dog, but these small bones can become lodged in the throat, stomach, or intestinal tract or break into splinters, causing extensive damage to the stomach and gastro-intestinal tract if swallowed, even puncturing the small intestines.

Raw or undercooked turkey – may contain deadly salmonella bacteria

Dough and Cake Batter – The combination of raw bread dough and the pet’s body heat can cause the dough to rise inside the stomach, resulting in vomiting, severe abdominal pain and bloating. The batter used in cakes and pies usually contains raw eggs which could contain salmonella bacteria that may lead to food poisoning.

Fat trimmings or very fatty foods – Rich, fatty foods such as turkey skin and dark turkey meat are difficult to digest and can cause vomiting and diarrhea in your dog, and in extreme cases, pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) .

** BBS Side Note: Symptoms of pancreatitis include loss of appetite, lethargy, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and fever. If you suspect your dog has helped himself to a turkey dinner and showing signs of having these symptoms seek vet help ASAP!

Onion and Garlic - These ingredients contain sulfides, which are toxic to animals and can cause the destruction of red blood cells, especially in cats, causing Heinz body anemia.

Sage – This, as well as many other herbs, contain essential oils and resins that can cause gastrointestinal upset and central nervous system depression to pets, especially in cats.

Raisins and Grapes – They are a choking hazard to pets and ingestion of either can cause significant kidney damage.

Walnuts and Macadamia Nuts
– These can cause weakness, depression, incoordination, and tremors. In addition, the high fat levels of these nuts may cause pancreatitis in dogs, resulting severe vomiting and diarrhea.

Chocolate - Chocolate can be toxic for pets, or even fatal, due to a substance called theobromine found in chocolate.

Mushrooms – These can produce damage to a number of internal organs, including kidneys, liver, and the central nervous system. If a dog eats mushrooms, seizures, coma, vomiting, even death can occur.

Chewing Gum and Candy – Many contain Xylitol, an artificial sweetener that can cause a severe drop in blood glucose in dogs and As soon as 30 minutes after ingestion, dogs can begin to show signs of depression, loss of coordination, and seizures. Xylitol may also lead to delayed onset damage to the liver occurring days to weeks after ingestion. Xylitol toxicity in pets may be fatal and requires immediate medical attention.

Beer - Alcohol, especially the hops in beer, can be particularly harmful to dogs, causing intoxication, panting, fever, racing heart, liver damage, even coma, seizures and death.

On behalf of Sushi, Espy and the Best Bully Sticks team, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month: Pet Cancer Facts and Prevention

November Pet Cancer Awareness MonthPet cancer is an unfortunate problem that can touch any and all of our lives. This month, be sure that you do your part in the fight against pet cancer. Participate in Pet Cancer Awareness Month activities in your community, spread the word, and donate. But before you start barking the word about pet cancer its important to know a few facts.

Canine Cancer Facts:

-Cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all disease-related pet deaths each year
-One in four dogs die of cancer.
-Approximately 1 in 4 dogs develops a tumor of some kind during his lifetime.
-Just like in humans, cancer can occur in any part of your dog’s body.

Signs of Cancer

The importance of annual check-ups regardless of the age of your pet is critical in the prevention of cancer. Here are the top 10 early warning signs of pet cancer listed out by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

1. Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow

2. Sores that do not heal

3. Weight loss

4. Loss of appetite

5. Bleeding or discharge from any body opening

6. Offensive odor

7. Difficulty eating or swallowing

8. Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina

9. Persistent lameness or stiffness

10. Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating

If you notice that your dog has abnormal swelling, sores that don’t heal, weight loss, poor appetite, bleeding, offensive odor, difficulty eating, fatigue, lameness, or difficulty performing normal functions like breathing or urinating, it’s incredibly important for you to see your veterinarian. Many of these symptoms can be early signs of pet cancer.

Cancer Types

The most common forms of cancer in pets are lymphomas and skin and oral tumours. Many types of cancer can be cured if caught early enough and if the lump is small enough to surgically remove. Even after a lump removed, your veterinarian may wish to send the sample to a pathologist to ensure that the margin of the growth is cancer free.

Treatment options

If your dog or cat is diagnosed with cancer, many of the same human treatment options are available for pets, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

Steps to Avoid Cancer in Your Pet

Keeping your pet active with a healthy weight and on a high quality diet will prevent some forms of cancer. Obesity is a major cause of cancer in pets. Having your pet spayed or neutered will drastically decrease the chance of various reproductive cancers.

Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity: We Honor The National Canine Cancer Foundation

We are dedicated to spreading awareness about pet related causes. Our “Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity“ series, pays tribute and honor animal rescue & shelters, unsung heroes across America dedicated to enriching, saving and nurturing the lives of animals in need.  We hope you will champion our cause by barking the word about the importance of pet adoption and donating your time and finances to your local animal shelter or rescue. Be a voice, email us if you know of a deserving animal rescue or charity that should be spotlighted and recognized. November marks National Pet Cancer Awareness Month. We are proud to spotlight “ The National Canine Cancer Foundation” to help bark awareness and find a cure.

The National Canine Cancer Foundation

About The National Canine Cancer Foundation

The National Canine Cancer Foundation is a nationwide, contribution funded, 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to eliminating Cancer as a major health issue in dogs by funding grants directly to Cancer researchers who are working to save lives, find cures, better treatments and accurate, cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with canine Cancer.

Mission:
The purpose of the Foundation’s Research Grant Program is to encourage and provide grant support for basic, pre-clinical and clinical research in high impact and innovative cancer research, which is intended to develop innovative approaches to a cure, treatment, diagnosis or prevention of cancers in dogs. The program fosters collaboration between basic and clinical scientists with the intent of enhancing the transfer of basic research findings to clinical usefulness.

Why should you care?

Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs. Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics. Through a major project funded by the National Institute of Health, the mapping of the genome sequence of the dog has been complete. Knowing the mapping of every gene in the dog, gives researchers an advantage not yet achieved in humans.

How can you help The National Canine Cancer Foundation ?

The National Canine Cancer Foundation

The National Canine Cancer Foundation thanks you for your generous donation. Your donation to their new, “We Are The Cure campaign,” is intended to rally every person who loves dogs to step up the transformation of research into treatments and cures that can soon benefit all dogs fighting for the lives because of Cancer.

This campaign offers you a rare chance to participate in this decisive process. Your support means helping them pay for the development of innovative therapies. It means funding the research that will culminate in a cure for Cancer. The sense of urgency is clear, yet it comes with the hope that they are nearing their goal.

Thanksgiving Pet Safety : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 135

Thanksgiving Pet Safety It’s time to talk turkey! Be fair warned that the tantalizing aroma of turkey, stuffing & pumpkin pie will cause drooling at the mouth. With turkey paw lifting on the rise, even the most behaved and well-trained dog have been known to help themselves to a drumstick or two. However, it is important to remember that some of our Thanksgiving food favorites are toxic to pets and can cause death or illness, they should be avoided. When feasting & filling your hungry belly on the Thanksgiving bounty that you slaved feverishly in the kitchen to prepare. Please keep these holiday pet safety tips in mind. Taking a few precautions will help keep your pet safe and the holidays full of bliss.

1. Keep pets on normal diet. Feeding turkey & sides to your dog or cat can cause him or her unwanted abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea. Not to mention can add a few unhealthy & unnecessary pounds to your pets waistline.

2. No Table Scraps Please! Do not give in to your pets pleading eyes & begging whines. Make sure to inform visiting guest and family to not indulge your pets with table scraps or sweets. Food high in sodium and other fatty foods like poultry skin, beef or port fat should not be on your dogs feasting menu. These foods, although tasty can cause an inflammation of pancreas. Pancreatitis is potentially life-threatening condition.

So what are some foods for your pet to avoid? Turkey skin, macadamia nuts, turkey bones, sage, chocolate, onions, nutmeg, grapes, raisins, sweets and the list goes on. So before the holidays arrive, be aware of what human foods are toxic to dogs and cats and keep the ASPCA pet poison control center number (888-426-4435) handy on the fridge.

3. Safely discard turkey string that tied the legs. Make sure to properly dispose of used aluminum foil, turkey pop ups, skewers, string, oven bags, whole lead seasonings plastic wrap, and wax paper that has been nicely flavored with turkey juice and all the fixing. Your pet will be tempted to lick and swallow which can lead to choking or  intestinal obstruction. One trick  is to put them in a sheet of unused foil as you prepare your dishes then wrap them up and place in the garbage that has a tight fitting lid. The foil will minimize the smell.

4. Secure the garbage can perimeter. If you haven’t already realized pets are scavengers and will wolf down anything that appears to be edible eye candy, especially if it smells good enough to eat or chew. Dogs are infamous for trash can tipping and dumpster diving. As an unsuspecting loving pet owner preoccupied with entertaining guest you may not realize that your dog has just sneaked off to his quiet spot to munch on a deadly snack.

5. Death by Chocolate. Although one of life simple pleasures chocolate is poisonous to dogs. Chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine which is toxic to pets health resulting in rapid breathing and hyperactivity.

6. Don’t give your dog the wish bone as a chew toy or treat. Turkey, duck, geese & bird bones are dangerous for pets because they can easily become brittle, sharp, and splinter.
