What Yorkie Thanksgiving Foods Are Safe?
Turkey can be a wonderful lean protein to share with your yorkie. Make sure that you remove any excess skin or fat, don’t let them eat any bones and stick with white meat.
Potatoes are a great, filling vegetable to share with your yorkie. Potatoes aren’t harmful to yorkies, be aware of additional ingredients used to make mashed potatoes. Cheese, sour cream, butter, onions, and gravies are no-no’s in a yorkie’s diet.
Cranberry sauce is just fine for yorkies but watch the amount of sugar in it. If you want to give them some, use very little.
Macaroni & Cheese
Only give your yorkie macaroni and cheese, if you know your yorkie’s stomach handles dairy alright. If you are unsure though, it may be best to just give plain macaroni.
Plain green beans are a wonderful treat for pets. Fresh vegetables are an excellent addition to any diet. If the green beans are included in a green bean casserole though, be aware of the rest of the ingredients in it.
Your yorkie’s diet is dependent on their individual needs. Loki loved frozen vegetables and yet Rosie is very picky about what food she eats. Also, take into consideration the dental health of your yorkie. Rosie needs her veggies cute small because they are easier to chew.
