If you’re the type of family who goes all our for Turkey Day and bakes your own bread, listen up: keep the raw dough away from pets. When your dog or cat cat ingests raw bread dough, the yeast continues to convert the sugars in the dough to carbon dioxide gas and alcohol. Simply put, your pets get bloated and drunk — which quickly turns into a life-threatening situation.
Pet owners should all know this one by now, but it’s always worth repeating: no chocolate for pets. It’s toxic. Tragic that something delicious could be toxic, but toxic nonetheless.
