We love our dogs, right? I mean, we really love them. They are just as much a member of the family as our kids, spouses, aunts, uncles, grandparents or anyone else that may come to your Thanksgiving feast. In fact, most people consider themselves to feel closer, emotionally, to their pet dog than blood relatives! It’s really not that hard to accept, considering dogs never judge and always give unconditional love. We want them to enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving feast like the rest of us, but cooked turkey, bones, and all that sugary, carb-loaded food sitting on the nicely laid out Thanksgiving dinner table just is not safe for our canine companions.
Instead of putting your dog at risk giving him left overs from Thanksgiving, give him his very own healthy, delicious and safe feast all on his own! Here is a FREE recipe that you will not find in my book, The Natural Dog Diet, available on Naturally Dogs, the Blog ONLY!
Raw Thanksgiving Feast
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped turkey innards (liver, kidney, lung, and gizzards)
1 can salmon
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax seed meal
1 tablespoon turmeric
Directions: Mix the thawed raw ground turkey with the salmon (leave the oil in it!) Mix in the chopped turkey innards. Add eggs, oil, flour, seeds or meal and turmeric. Mix well! Use your hands to form into balls, like meat balls! You can freeze them and feed them frozen, feed it fresh and mushy, or just spoon it into your dog’s food bowl!
Note: 1 “meatball” sized portion per 10lbs of body weight. Refrigerate or freeze the rest – everyone loves Thanksgiving left overs!!
You can provide a little more food than you normally do for this special holiday meal. Show your dog how much you are thankful for their love and devotion by making their tummies happy with healthy, tasty Raw Thanksgiving Feast!
