What Vets Think About The Day After Thanksgiving

I came across this meme on Facebook today, posted by a veterinarian friend of mine.

It's funny because it's true!  After major holidays that involve lots of food we almost always see cases related to pets eating things that they shouldn't have.  Typically this is mostly after Thanksgiving and Christmas, and to some degree after Independence Day.  At these times people sometimes will slip "goodies" from the table to the dogs and cats, not realizing the harm that it might do.  We also see lots of scraps in the trash, enticing pets to try and get into this forbidden food.  So vets often get cynical about holidays in ways that a "normal" person would never consider.  That's why I loved this meme so much.

I did work today and was surprised that I didn't see any cases like this.  But there's always tomorrow!
