Homemade dog food is a great alternative to commercial diets for most pets. You can tailor meals to suit your dog’s needs and use the healthiest ingredients. This Turkey food for dogs is made from flaxseed, yogurt, oatmeal, and other superfood ingredients.
As with most other homemade dog food recipes, if your dog can’t eat turkey, you can substitute another source of protein. If your pet is sensitive to common sources of protein, you can use game, bison, or rabbit instead.
You can also substitute for dog-friendly fruits and vegetables that your dog likes. Healthy fruits and vegetables for dogs include:
- green beans
Before replacing any other vegetable or fruit, check with your veterinarian or do your own research. There are some fruits and vegetables that can be toxic to dogs, such as grapes, onions, and avocado.

There is no scientific or legal definition of what a Superfood it really is, but most people consider any food that is filled with higher amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants a superfood in their diet, so it is more of a marketing term than anything else.

Lazy pets and older dogs may not need that many. It is extremely important that you ask your veterinarian about the best serving size for your dog.
How to save: You can store leftover dog turkey food in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or freeze it and it will keep for up to 3 months. Keep in mind that this recipe contains no preservatives, so it won’t last nearly as long as commercial dog food.
