PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole… you’re probably salivating just thinking about Thanksgiving dinner and it’s more than likely that your dog is too!

Before everyone sits down to eat, it’s important to know which foods are off-limits for pets and it’s a good idea to inform your house guests as well.

And before the dinner is even served make sure the food is pushed far off the ledge — even the most well-behaved pets may not be able to control themselves from chowing down.
