Share With Your Dog This Thanksgiving!
We love our pups but can often get carried away with either of two extremes: no feeding dogs table scraps… Or let the dog lick every plate that had food on it. Neither of these are ideal. You can certainly share Thanksgiving with your pup, but please do so smartly.
Here’s a great way to do just that!
Satisfy your dog this holiday with the following delicious and healthy thanksgiving themed meal!
Note: This meal is not intended to be “complete and balanced” for daily feeding, but as a supplemental meal for a day or two.
Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner for Dogs!
Makes approximately: 1 meal for an average 10 lb. dog. Adjust accordingly to your dog’s weight and energy level.
- Turkey, muscle meat and organs, (no skin or bones!) torn or cut into bite size pieces
- Cranberries, chopped
- Pumpkin (pure, not pumpkin pie filling!)
- Green beans, fresh or canned
- Cinnamon, use only ground ceylon cinnamon
- Bone broth, from your Thanksgiving turkey!
Tear or cut the turkey into bite size pieces, according to your dog’s size, add all other ingredients together and mix or if your dog prefers puree in a blender. Serve to your very excited dog!
If your dog isn’t used to eating “human” food use as a topper for his regular meal instead.
Packing A Punch!
Each of the ingredients in this recipe were specially chosen for their safety and health benefits for your dog.
Turkey is a meat rich with protein and healthy fats to satisfy your dog’s two most important nutritional needs.
Cranberries are full of protective antioxidants.
Pumpkin contains a healthy dose of dietary fiber, and provides a little carbohydrates.
Ceylon Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. It is known to stop the growth of pathogenic bacteria, yeast and fungi, and may have anti-carcinogenic properties.
Bone broth is a super-food source of collagen and glucosamine for supporting joints and the gut mucosal lining. It contains the amino acid glycine which aids the liver in detoxing. It also contains important nutrients and boosts the immune system. Learn how to make your own bone broth here.
Happy Thanksgiving to You and Your Satisfied Dog!
