5 Holiday Foods Your Pet Can Enjoy

The holidays are all about coming together with the people you love most and enjoying yummy recipes you don’t eat every day. During the upcoming holiday feasts, be sure to stock up on pet-friendly foods that your four-legged family members can munch on too!

Fresh Pumpkin & Pumpkin Puree

Give your pet a sweet treat with pumpkin puree or fresh pumpkin. Pumpkin is a safe, healthy holiday snack for your pet. Just remember to purchase unsweetened pumpkin puree without any added sweeteners. With fresh pumpkin, peel, roast, and serve–avoid any added salts or oils. 

Skinless, Boneless, White Meat Turkey 

Turkey bones and the seasonings or fixings used to cook your holiday meal are hazardous to your pet. However, white meat turkey is perfectly safe and offers an excellent source of protein for your pet. Allowing pets to have a little turkey meat is a great way to keep them included in this year’s holiday dining. 


Many vegetables are safe for your furry friends to chow down on. Carrots, celery, and cucumbers are good snacks for your dog and pose no health risks. Avoid feeding them vegetables that have been seasoned or cooked with other potentially harmful foods, and never feed them onions or garlic, as they are toxic to pets. 

Baked or Boiled Potatoes 

Baked or boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes are excellent holiday treats your pet can indulge in without worry! They are a great source of dietary fiber that your pet will love. Skip out on allowing them to eat mashed potatoes, as they usually contain butter and milk that can upset your pet’s stomach and cause painful vomiting or diarrhea. 

Make this holiday season a safe and enjoyable time for your whole family, and don’t hesitate to contact your local veterinarian when you have questions regarding your pet’s holiday diet!
