Yes! Turkey is a lean protein that is highly digestible and helps build muscles. Protein gives your dog the energy he needs! Turkey is also a good source of iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin B6, and niacin. It’s also a great alternative for dogs who are sensitive or allergic to chicken or beef.
Dogs can eat ground turkey:
- As an ingredient in canned or dry dog food.
- A topping with dinner. When you’re cooking a meat sauce for your spaghetti, separate out ½ cup of unseasoned ground turkey, and mix it in with your dog’s next meal.
- A special meal. Try a dog-friendly turkey meatloaf with chopped parsley and basil. Avoid adding additional seasonings such as garlic or onions that are toxic to dogs.
