All I remember is - don't feed thanksgiving turkey to the dogs...not why and I'd bet the newbies are not all familiar with this!
Thanks in advance guys!
Hmm. I've never heard that one. Couldn't be the triptafen in it, is it? That's just the chemical that makes us drowsy; it's used in a lot of antidepressants and anti-axiety meds for pets.

It's the fat and grease. Turkey meat itself is OK.
I've heard that it gives dog gas and upsets their tummies.

It is the skin, the fat. I know it can cause pancreatitis in dogs.
All I know is that when I give Saba even a little piece of turkey meat (no fat and no skin) he gets the runs that last 24 hours. So no matter how much he looks at me with those big brown eyes... no turkey for him.
I am not sure what this is about but all I can say is that Tank was eating a mixture of ground turkey, potatoes, and carrotts for years after his cancer diagnosis and never had a lick of a digestive or otherwise problem from eating turkey. He ate it for a couple years. In fact the receipe was given to me by the dietician at A&M Teaching Hospital to use due to a skin problem. He did so well on it we continued feeding for him up until about 2 months ago and switched him over to regular kibble with some ground cooked chicken.
