Thanksgiving is a great time to get together and enjoy tasty food with your friends and family. You might be tempted to share this grub with your dog, but there are some important things to consider before doing so.

While they will definitely eat and enjoy whatever you give them, just because it is okay for us to eat doesn’t mean it is okay for them.

This especially includes different spices and produce. If you want to know what is safe to feed your pup, check out our post on how to make your dog their own Thanksgiving meal.

Keep scrolling to see what you should not feed your dog this Thanksgiving:

Onion, garlic, shallot, chives, etc.

These are actually toxic to dogs, so be sure you don’t feed it to them raw or cooked into any dishes.

Meat Skin

Whether it’s turkey or ham skin, it is high in fat and often covered in seasonings that will give your dog a very upset tummy.

Turkey Bones

Not only are they a choking hazard, but they can also cause blockages in your pet’s intestine.


Anything with dairy is bound to give your dog an upset stomach. So, it’s best to avoid it all together.


This is a well-known toxic food for dogs, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about it. It can be very dangerous for your dog to eat, so keep an eye out if it’s in any of your desserts.
