  •  Nikki quizzed Brent on whether he knew which foods were safe or unsafe for his dog to eat from the Thanksgiving table.
    • Safe to feed your dogs

      • Sweet potatoes that don’t contain any added ingredients
      • Potatoes that are boiled or baked with no butter, sour cream, salt, or pepper, served in moderation
      • Apples that are cut around the core. Large amounts of apple seeds can be toxic
      • Turkey meat (no bones, no skin) as long as it’s not prepared with any seasoning
      • Green beans without any added ingredients like butter or spices
      • Plain peas are fine, but creamed peas should be avoided
      • Pumpkin can help with digestive health and it’s great for a dog’s skin and coat, but if feeding canned pumpkin, make sure it’s not the pre-spiced pie mix
      • Dessert is an option if you pick something healthy like frozen yogurt
