You know who else can’t wait to eat sweet potatoes, turkey, and pumpkin pie? Your dog! But you don’t want to give them scraps off the table – especially when human foods are usually cooked with excess salt and sugar, and sometimes contain toxic ingredients (like garlic, onion, raisins, and xylitol).
That being said, there are some super healthy treats you can make for your pup using classic Thanksgiving ingredients that have real health benefits. Fresh food brand Ollie rounded up a few of their favorite recipes that your dog will definitely be thanking you for.
