Do you want to prepare Dog-friendly Christmas dinner for your dogs? We got you!We have listed the most popular Christmas meals for dogs
Christmas is an exciting time for all the family, and that includes your dog too!We all want our four legged friend to be involved in all the festivities, but it's important to know which foods are safe for them to eat. While preparing your pup a special Christmas meal, it’s important to know that there are certain foods that should be avoided as they could cause problems that vary in severity from digestive issues, to possible death.
Can I give my dog turkey?
Yes, you can give your dog as long as it’s boneless, without seasoning and skinless. Make sure it's gravy free as well. The skin is much too fatty for your dog, while the bones can cause internal damage, so ensure that you’ve taken the time to remove these from the meat before adding it to your dog’s Christmas dinner.
Can my dog eat stuffing?
No, unfortunately stuffing contains onions, spices and lots of herbs. Onions is toxic for your dog, while some other spices and herbs can cause stomach upset.
Can my dog eat Christmas pudding and mince pies?
Definitely not. Christmas treats contain lots of currants, sultanas and raisins which are all highly toxic for your dog, and in some cases if digested they can even cause severe kidney failure.
Can my dog eat pigs in blankets?
Arguably one of the most delicious sides at Christmas dinner, pigs in blankets are (unsurprisingly) very fatty, salty and too rich for our pet’s stomachs. Too much fat can cause pancreatitis in pets and lead to long term problems.
What meal can I prepare my dog for Christmas dinner?
Here are most popular Christmas meal ideas for your pup!
Turkey and Rice Dinner
1 lb. ground turkey
2 cups brown rice
16 oz. frozen cauliflower, broccoli, carrot blend
6 cups water
Add the water, rice, turkey, and rosemary to a large soup pot and stir thoroughly to break up the meat. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to low heat and simmer 20 min. Add vegetables and continue cooking for 5 mins. Stir and allow to cool before serving a portion appropriate for your dog.
Christmas Turkey Medallions
6 oz. cooked skinless white meat turkey
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup chopped carrots
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper. Use a food processor to blend the carrots and turkey together. Add oatmeal and blend again. Roll 1” meatballs and place on the baking tray. Bake 15 minutes. Allow cooling before serving a portion appropriate for your dog.
A super tasty side dish, again only feed your pet potatoes in small quantities – as they are starchy – and ensure they are plain with nothing else added, such as butter and salt.
