Healthy Turkey Treat Recipes for Pets

Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a taste of turkey. Here are two recipes for pet-healthy meals worthy of the holiday.

Note: These recipes should be considered occasional treats, not as everyday replacements for your pet's regular diet. If your pet is on a special diet or has a history of pancreatitis or other digestive problems, check with your vet before changing their diet.

Lazy Turkey Loaf (for dogs)

Makes 6 servings

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a mixing bowl combine turkey, vegetables, egg, barley, and oats. Mix thoroughly. Spoon into a greased loaf pan and pat down meat mixture until level. Spread gravy on top of loaf and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Cool and cut into six even slices. Store unused portions in refrigerator.

Turkey Supreme (for cats)

Makes 4 servings

Combine turkey, carrots, spinach, and green beans. Add rice and enough chicken broth to bind ingredients. Cool until mixture is lukewarm and serve.
