Easy Thanksgiving Treats For Your Dog
These super easy, vet-approved recipes let your dog (and cat!) celebrate Thanksgiving too!


When roving noses make their way into your lap during dinner, it can be easy to give in and slip pets a scrap or two from the table. But feasting on rich, fatty foods can knock the stuffing out of Fido and Fluffy, not to mention your wallet if it necessitates an emergency vet visit! Pancreatitis and food poisoning are common conundrums when pets eat from your plate. Take a page out of Petplan’s (veterinarian-approved!) cookbook and make a few Turkey Day treats fit for Fido. Everything can be created with ingredients already on hand, and unlike table food handouts, they’re safe to offer pets.

Before you balk, don’t worry — you won’t need to buy complicated ingredients or cram in more prep between basting, whipping, and chopping. The recipes below include items you already have on paw and most can be made alongside your main meal.

Petplan’s veterinarians carefully concocted each recipe so pet parents can rest assured they’re offering a safe alternative to table handouts. That way furry friends can be included in the festivities — after all, they have a lot to be thankful for, too. Let's get cooking! After all, we have a lot to be thankful for and topping our list is our dogs! 


When it comes to pets and table food, you know to keep paws off the chocolate — but what about carrots, or sweet potato casserole? We’ve sniffed out the best and worst foods for your furry friend’s Thanksgiving feast.


And remember, don’t dish out foods high in fat, sugar, butter or seasoning – keep it simple to avoid upset stomachs! Happy thanksgiving everyone!
