Thanksgiving is around the corner! It's the perfect season to enjoy great food and spend time with our family. Do you know which other family member loves food? Our pets! That's right, you guessed it... It's time to make our little loved ones the BEST Thanksgiving dinner there is. Whether it's food or treats, make these for your pet, and they'll continue to love you for a lifetime.
Important Note: NEVER use any items that have xylitol in it, which can be very dangerous for dogs.
Let's give them a full Thanksgiving dinner!
3 pounds lean ground turkey
1 tbsp. olive oil
1.5 cups of UNCOOKED rice (organic if possible)
2 shredded carrots
3 cups chopped spinach
1 shredded zucchini
The first step is to cook the rice according to the instructions on the packaging. You'll need 1.5 cups of uncooked rice, which means it will measure about 3 cups when it is cooked.
In a large pot, brown the turkey on medium heat, using the olive oil to keep it from sticking. You can also substitute coconut oil or any other dog-friendly cooking oil that you have on hand. While the turkey is cooking, crumble it with a spatula.
Turn the temperature to low and add the cooked rice, carrots, spinach and zucchini to the crumbled turkey. Cook on low until the homemade Thanksgiving dinner for dogs is heated through and the spinach has wilted.
As soon as the food has cooled you can serve it to your pet. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days. You can also freeze this dish to serve later. Store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
