28 Nov White or Dark Meat Turkey with CBD for your Pets?
It’s no secret that your dog loves meat. When it comes to turkey on Thanksgiving, there is one part of the bird you should stick with. You can add their dose of CBD to their portion of meat, but make sure it’s the right dose.
Avoid the Dark Meat
When it comes to the dark meat, don’t give this to your dog or cat. It’s too greasy and fatty. These parts of the meat also tend to be more salty. This can cause your pet to have an upset stomach, diarrhea or even vomit.
Sure, it smells great to them and they might beg for it, but don’t give it to them. It’s the portion of the bird that most people have the most of after all of the humans have eaten, but if you want your pet to participate in Thanksgiving dinner, keep a little bit of the breast meat aside for them.
You should also avoid giving them thigh meat. Thighs are just as greasy as the legs and wings.
White Meat Only
The breast meat is great for your pet. You can mix a little in with some boiled potatoes (avoid mashed potatoes due to the salt and pepper). Your dog or cat can also have a little bit of baked or boiled sweet potato.
While some pets tolerate dairy just fine, on a stressful day like Thanksgiving – that little bit of dairy can cause some stomach upset.
Drizzle your pet’s dose of CBD onto their little portion of meat.
Other Ways to Incorporate CBD into Thanksgiving for your Pet
Thanksgiving can be just as stressful for your pets as it is for you. All of the people and noise might give them stress or some anxiety. You can add their dose of CBD to potatoes or their turkey. You can also just add it to their dry food.
On these extra stressful days, your pet’s normal dose of CBD might not be enough. Keep this in mind. You might need to take them up one step to the moderate or large dose to help them cope better. Speak with your vet before giving them this larger dose though.
Choose the right CBD product for your pets too. Larger pets might do better with a CBD capsule that digests and might last longer. When it comes to smaller pets, it’s often just too difficult to determine the right dose in a capsule since some are liquid filled and others are hard capsules. For small pets, stick to Pet Health CBD tinctures. It’s much easier to get them the accurate dose that they need.
Also keep in mind that your pets cannot have poultry bones. They splinter can could cause serious injury. Your dog may beg and beg and bet for those bones, but substitute a beef bone instead. It’s a good idea to just steep the beef bone in some low-sodium turkey stock as it’ll give it a little bit of that turkey flavor. Let your pets enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, but keep the meal safe for them.
