Your dog may want to participate in the holiday festivities too, but not all foods are safe for him.

RELATED: 10 things you can do over the holidays that don’t involve eating

Never, ever feed your dog these five foods from your table:

  1. Onions — they can cause amenia
  2. Dinner rolls — the yeast can give them gas
  3. Dessert — too much sugar is as bad for our four-legged friends as it is for us
  4. Turkey — beware of bones in the meat!
  5. Alcohol — obviously

But that doesn’t mean humans should have all the fun! It’s OK for dogs to eat:

  1. Cranberry sauce
  2. Raw vegetables
  3. Mashed potatoes
  4. Plain pumpkin

Happy holidays to you and Fido!
