Doggy health hazards during the holidays

-LEFTOVERS: Many dogs get sick not from being fed directly but eating huge quantities of food when humans aren’t around…

-FOOD NO-NOS:  Don’t give your dog turkey skin, turkey or poultry bones, onions, grapes, raisins, fatty foods, or other holiday items that are toxic to dogs.
