Yes! Turkey bacon is the best bacon option for dogs; however, be sure to choose a low-sodium and uncured variety. Turkey bacon does provide a protein boost to give your dog the energy she needs as well as some fatty acids that are good for a healthy coat. While turkey is a healthy meat for your dog, bacon should be consumed in moderation because of the additives.
