No, your dog should not be eating turkey hotdogs. They are too high in fat for dogs and can cause pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) if eaten routinely. Beef franks also contain xylitol which is used as a sweetener so they should never be given to pets either. If you want to give your pet meat, stick with lean meats like beef or chicken that have little fat content so they won’t get sick.
Dog’s can eat turkey hot dogs, but no more than 1-2 times per month. Be sure to check out this turkey hot dog recipe for your pup! It is high in protein and low in fat.
The main ingredient is organic ground turkey which has less fat than chicken or beef so it’s safe to feed your dog once a week.
Just remember to keep things with sugar (ie: peppers) off-limits since it is very dangerous for pets.
If you enjoy the holidays with family, have them save their leftovers that are just cooked meat, opt for things like turkey breast or ham that are lower in fat rather than filling up with many goodies around the table. This gives you time throughout the year to enjoy your leftovers with your dog. Another alternative is to cook something different every holiday and experiment with the flavors that are safe for dogs but fun for you!
