Have so much leftover turkey you can't even imagine eating it? Don't - let the dog have it instead! They'll love it!
My turkey treats are healthy home-made cookies that are especially good for (re)using up that leftover turkey.
Step 1: Gather your ingredients
Gather your ingredients:
1 cup turkey
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp flax seed oil
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup flour
Some things to note:
*turkey - these made any time of year substituting 2 cans of tuna/salmon/chicken/etc. Please note that some dogs have more sensitive tummies than others, so make sure you're dog isn't allergic to whatever meat you choose to use.
*eggs - this recipe uses the egg shells. they are a good source of calcium, in addition to the vitamins and minerals inside the egg
*garlic - garlic repels fleas and is good for the immune system. some people believe that in large doses it is not good for dogs, but in small doses it can be good.
*oatmeal - is one of the best sources of fiber/carbohydrates. If you don't have any it's ok to substitute flour, it just won't be as healthy
*flour - if you have rice flour, it's the best since it's the easiest type of flour for a dog to digest. it you don't normal flour is ok.
*flax seed oil - a great source of omega 3 oils (good for skin and coat). if you have fish oil that's also a great source of omega 3s. If you don't have either you can substitute regular vegetable oil.
You'll also want a silpat or parchment paper to put on your cookie sheet so that these don't stick.
