While celebrations might be a bit different this year — smaller get-togethers or sharing dinner with friends and relatives over video calls — I’ll bet most of us will still have leftovers we’d love to share with our furry best friends.
Keep in mind, we need to be careful about sharing table food with our dogs. Not just because we don’t want to make them overweight, but especially because those savory and sweet dishes might contain tasty but toxic ingredients: onions, turkey skin, and that chocolate pie to name but a few.
And while canned pumpkin is safe and often quite beneficial for dogs, pumpkin pie is NOT. Many of those spices are toxic, so as tempting as it is to share a piece of that ubiquitous Thanksgiving treat, DON’T!
So how do we include our pups in our favorite part of our Thanksgiving feast — those leftovers? With a great new recipe I found from Dogtipper using leftover turkey … no skin!
These treats contain the added benefit of oatmeal, which can be a great alternative for dogs with wheat allergies.
Oatmeal and turkey dog treats are easy to make for your dog – and oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber. It’s also an excellent choice especially for senior dogs — or for any dog with wheat allergies.
I can’t wait to make these myself, and might try it with some fresh ground turkey before I even have leftovers from next week’s festivities. I’m certain my own dog will be happy to taste test!
