Can Dogs Eat Turkey?
No Thanksgiving dinner for dogs is complete without turkey. Turkey is a great source of lean protein, and you can even serve your dog some of the same turkey you’ll put on the table, so long as it is baked and isn’t too spicy.
Turkey for dogs makes a great alternative to dog treats when served in small quantities, as this mild meat won’t produce any ill effects in most dogs.
If you decide to give your dog a piece of your turkey, make sure that you choose white meat, and remove large pieces of fat and skin. This keeps the fat content low, which can help avoid an upset tummy or a more severe problem, like pancreatitis. Be sure that your dog doesn’t get ahold of any turkey bones, either. When cooked, they have a tendency to splinter.
If your turkey is too spicy or salty or you have deep fried it, but you still want your pet to get a taste of the holidays, consider Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner grain-free canned dog food or a treat like Tylee’s Human-Grade turkey jerky.
