PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s Super Bowl Sunday and there are so many things people look forward to — especially the parties. Carol Erickson, an animal advocate for the Pennsylvania SPCA, has some tips for pet owners who are hosting Super Bowl parties.

While you and your guests are focused on the game, it is the perfect opportunity for your pet to grab chicken wings or other party foods right off your plate.
