How to Make a Pet-Friendly Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to bring your pets out of the house! After all, you’ve been together for a long time, and now you’re all going to be together for a little while longer. It’s true that dogs and cats can get a little grumpy when they spend too much time alone, but it’s hard to blame them. They’ve been alone all day and don’t want to be around people all day. The holidays are a great time to make new friends and strengthen bonds with family members. But how do you do this without getting into a fight with your cat or your dog? We’ve all been there, and it’s a conversation you’d rather not have.

Luckily, there are ways to have a great holiday and still have your pet around.

• Pumpkin Treat

As you may know, Thanksgiving is a big holiday for dogs, particularly people who own pooch who need to be fed at the onset of winter. However, it’s not unusual for those who have a cat or small dog to find it difficult to feed their pets during the holiday because they have become accustomed to not feeding their furry friends during the winter. However, there are several ways that you can feed your pets at your home during the winter months.

A good Thanksgiving dinner usually consists of a meat-based dish, a side dish, and a vegetable. It’s a comfortable combination that works well for people with several courses, but for those who only have one, the turkey alone can be too much. If you want to feed your pets a good Thanksgiving dinner too, but don’t have as many options as people, you can make a pumpkin treat with your dog or cat, which everyone loves, and no one will even notice that you’re feeding them a low-carb meal!

• BBQ Liver Treats

Thanksgiving is the perfect time of year to make some tasty and special treats for your pets. Your family will be thankful for the little things you do, so why not show your furry friends how much you appreciate them by making them a little extra to help them celebrate the holiday.

As the holidays approach, you may be aching to get your hands on some delicious, indulgent foods. But, what about your beloved pooch? The sight of a big bowl of turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes may be hard to stomach when you recall all the carbs and fat such a meal will likely be loaded with. So, how can you get that same holiday meal without all the carbs and all the fat? You can, by turning to these crunchy BBQ liver treats for an appetizer or even a full meal.

• Sweet Potato Treats

Sweet potatoes have been getting a lot of hype lately, thanks to their delicious taste and the many ways we can use them in our daily lives. For instance, they are a great source of fibre and nutrients and add a nice sweetness to things such as curries, cakes, and even ice cream. We can also use them as a fantastic ingredient in baking, which makes them a versatile, little food that can be used in a wide range of recipes. Thanksgiving is a time when many families gather to enjoy food, family, and friends. While most people would agree that turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie are delicious foods, some holidays are more about the food itself than the company. This year, why not focus on another holiday and try sweet potato treats instead.

• Doggy Meatballs

Do you have a pet that’s a holiday tradition? Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for friends and family, but maybe your pet isn’t quite as excited about turkey and stuffing as the rest of the family. It’s the perfect time to start preparing your pup for the holiday dinner. If your dog or cat gets nervous around a lot of smells, give them an opportunity to explore. Let them smell all the food without eating it. They’ll get used to the smells, and once the dinner is over, they’ll be ready for the treats.

This Thanksgiving, it’s your turn to show your family how to put on a fun and exciting meal. The traditions are all set, but you want to make a dish that your dog wants to help make to keep things interesting. Meatballs are a perfect choice since many dog’s love helping with the cooking process, and you can play with the ingredients to give your dog his own special spin.
