Charlotte has been dewormed, spayed, vet-checked and microchipped.

A number of families will be observing Thanksgiving throughout this four-day weekend. The folks at Top Smart Collar offer a few suggestions regarding pet safety this holiday.

  • Avoid offering your pet holiday foods such as fatty meats, onions, yeast dough, raw eggs and chocolate as a treat.
  • Secure your trash receptacle so your pet doesn't rummage through and wind up eating something that could be bad for them.
  • Keep pets in a few confined area during large holiday gatherings. Some animals just don't like a lot of strangers making a commotion.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
