COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- A lot of us want to spoil our cute four-legged family members over the Thanksgiving holiday and share some of our meal with them, but it’s best to leave those scraps on the table.

The experts say you might want to put together a basket with healthy treats just for them instead.
Many stores offer special foods that won’t harm your pets.

It might not be turkey and the trimmings but it’s much better for them.

” Mainly because of the over seasoning that we do. They don’t need the different desserts with all the added amounts of sugar. They don’t need all the additives that we put into the food. So these guys, they’re limited ingredient… safe turkey, safe pumpkin, cranberries, all kinds of good stuff,” said food consultant Lacy Gray.

Gray said pumpkin treats can help with dog and cat digestion.
