Tips for Making Homemade Turkey Meatloaf for Dogs

• Use a 1-pound loaf pan.

• I like to use parchment paper as it allows the meatloaf to come out very easily. But, if you don’t have parchment paper then you can grease the pan well with coconut oil.

• Make sure to store extra meatloaf in an airtight container in the fridge.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of meat?

Yes, if your dog eats ground chicken or ground lamb, those would be easy to substitute for the beef or turkey. You can also use all beef or all turkey. I like to use a mix as John John’s main protein is turkey and we usually add in beef liver as well. So, when he gets this recipe, we sometimes skip the beef liver and just allow him to indulge in some ground beef instead.

Can I use different vegetables?

Yes, if your dog eats different vegetables then you can swap out for what your dog prefers. Other vegetables that are safe and healthy for dogs include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, green beans, peas, or spinach (but only in moderation).

How should I store meatloaf for dogs?

The same way you’d store meatloaf for you! Be sure to keep extra meatloaf in an airtight container in the fridge.

How much meatloaf should I feed my dog for a meal?

This all depends on your dogs size and current weight. Always check with your vet to make sure you are feeding your dog the appropriate amount of food for their size and age.

You should be feeding your dog 2% to 5% of their body weight in fresh food. So, for example, if your dog is 18 pounds (like John John), and he’s a puppy who isn’t overweight, I will go at 4% that’s about 3/4 pound per day. Split that up between meals.

Another easy way to easily see how much food your dog needs is to just look at the back of a bag of dog food. Look online, if you don’t have one! If your dog eats 2 cups of food per day, and they eat 2 meals per day, then give them 1 cup of meatloaf per meal.

Why Organic for Your Dog?

You may be wondering why you should buy organic food for your dog. It's the same reasons that you should buy organic food for yourself. Your dog's health is important, just like yours. So, treating them right with organic ingredients will benefit their long term health.

And organic ingredients are much healthier for your dog to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients! And that counts for your pup too!
