Can Dogs Eat Turkey

can dogs eat turkeyDuring holidays such as Thanksgiving, many pet owners ask the question “can dogs eat turkey?” Here are some tips concerning this issue:

It is quite safe for you to share your turkey meat with your dog. The only thing to be concerned about are the bones. These can be potentially dangerous. Poultry bones can get lodged in your dog’s throat, injure his mouth, or splinter and puncture his intestines. If your dog loves turkey, cut some off the bones and give it as a treat. Make sure the bones have been removed.

It’s best to be cautious when serving turkey. Mention to everyone about the risk involved so that they aren’t tempted to feed your dog without your knowledge. Keep all turkey remains out of reach so that you and your pet can spend the holiday enjoying the celebration.
