Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and with that comes a reminder concerning our furry friends! The last thing you need is to stress over your pet and the bounty of food around, so I thought providing a couple general tips would be useful.
Please discourage well-meaning friends and family from feeding your pet from the table or anywhere else. Your animal may have a food intolerance and well-meaning friends or family who are unaware could cause potential problems.
Acute pancreatitis is one of the leading causes of veterinary emergency hospital visits during the holidays. This can be a life-threatening condition. Pancreatitis usually occurs from overfeeding companion pets particularly high fat foods.
Some signs to watch for are lethargy, diarrhea, and vomiting. Please take your animal to your Veterinarian if any of these symptoms occur.
