Jamestown Veterinary Hospital: Distinctive Veterinary Care

From the Doctor


During the month of November our Thanksgiving dinner is a big affair.  Family and friends join us for the Thanksgiving celebration, and we also include our furry family members.  As we give thanks and share on this holiday, we need to remember it is unhealthy to share holiday meal leftovers with our pets. High fatty foods such as ham, gravy and turkey skins can cause pancreatitis. Turkey bones are hollow and can easily break and splinter into sharp pieces, causing blockage and perforation of the intestinal tract. A pet that has a turkey bone lodged in their digestive system may not exhibit any symptoms for one to two days. However, when they do occur, symptoms include loss of appetite, depression, vomiting or diarrhea.

Pets who are given leftover turkey to eat can also suffer from salmonella food poisoning.  Salmonella is an organism that lives in the turkey's intestinal tract. Salmonella organisms can multiply and cause contamination of meat if it remains at room temperature for long periods of time.  Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, a high temperature, loss of appetite and listlessness.  Please call our office immediately if your pet exhibits any digestive problems.

If people are coming over for the holidays and your pet is not used to parties and lots of noise, consider placing, them in a quiet part of the house until the guests leave. Conversely, if your pet is a party animal and loves to mix and mingle; be sure to ask your guests not to slip them table scraps or treats without permission.

If you are going to travel during the holidays, make arrangements for the care of your pet. Care should be provided by either a family member, pet sitter or boarding facility. If you need help with accommodations over the holidays, we will be happy to schedule boarding for your pet while you travel.

Happy Thanksgiving,

- Dr. Wade
