When it comes to the turkey, some components can be hazardous while others are not.
For example, basic, white turkey meat on its own shouldn't be harmful, but well-seasoned, skin-on, or bone-in meat can be harmful.
Similar to turkey, simple ham is probably okay, but it can be harmful if a bone or a piece that has been strongly spiced is consumed. Additionally, it is one of the fattier meats, which is bad for dogs.
Another common holiday dish is red meat, such as steak and brisket, which, like other meats, can be problematic for dogs to eat due to the spice, fattiness, and bones.
This Christmas season, cheese may be the centrepiece of your charcuterie board, but it certainly shouldn't be the star of your dog's meal.

The majority of owners are aware that chocolate is unhealthy for dogs, but they may not be aware of the quantity or type that can be harmful.
All desserts, including baked goods like Christmas cookies, pies, and cakes, should be kept away from dogs since they frequently include a number of potentially hazardous chemicals.
This holiday season, be careful to keep yeast doughs out of your dog's reach because they can rise in their systems and result in significant, potentially fatal bloating problems.
