Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
This meatloaf turkey recipe is a hit with dogs, easy to make at home, and might just inspire your inner chef. Because the meatloaf you’re used to eating contains ingredients (like onions, garlic, and sauces) that are either toxic or can cause GI issues in dogs, it isn’t an ideal choice to give them. This recipe is geared specifically for dogs, includes all the good stuff they love, and excludes ingredients that might upset their stomach.
To get started making the meatloaf, you’ll mix your pup’s favorite meats, some oats and two eggs, then add in their favorite vegetables. If you’re missing an ingredient, substitutions are easy. In place of the oatmeal, you can try other whole grains, such as brown rice or quinoa. Flaxseed meal is a good substitute for bread crumbs. If you don’t have turkey, you can use ground beef, chicken, or lamb, but avoid pork or veal, which can be too fatty.
If your pup is a fan of sweet potatoes, you can bake them in the pan at the same time too. And if you’re feeling inspired, consider adding some nutritionally-packed supplements or toppings to complement the meatloaf, like pulverized calcium, nori (seaweed), chopped pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
