Md. SPCA offers pet safety tips for Thanksgiving

Keep your pet happy during the holidays, Maryland SPCA experts say, by following some basic tips when it comes to holiday feasting:

*Let them eat turkey: Only give pets well cooked and boneless portions of the bird though.

*Don't let them overdo it: Too much feasting can upset pets' stomachs or lead to pancreatitis.

*Instead of offering pets people food, give them Nylabones or chew bones. A little peanut butter or sweet potato may be an appropriate treat.
