Ask the Veterinarian

It’s time for you to control the content on the show! We asked our Facebook fans to pose their pet-related questions for Doctor Erin Bequette, a veterinarian from the Animal Emergency and Referral Center of Minnesota.

Dr. Bequette has advice for avoiding an emergency trip to the vet over Thanksgiving:

  • Don’t give your dog turkey skin, fat or bones
  • Make sure dogs don’t get into stuffing or any sweet with raisins as they’re toxic

Also remember that all homes you visit with your dog are pet-proofed. Emergency trips frequently occur over the holidays when dogs find rat poison. Dr. Bequette recommends keeping an extra close eye on your pet when you take them to another house.
