The Nutritious Benefits of Our New Turkey Recipe

The Nutritious Benefits of Our New Turkey Recipe


Our new Healthy Turkey Feast recipe really lives up to its name: it’s full of nutritious, natural superfoods your pup can get real health benefits from. Plus, there are no potatoes (or peas!) in it so it’s great for dogs who have that specific allergy. See why some of the star ingredients in our turkey meals can be so awesome for your pup:

Turkey

Turkey is a great lean source of protein that can help contribute to pups’ muscle mass. For dogs that are prone to meat allergies, it can also be less allergenic than other sources such as chicken.

Pumpkin

This squash plant is high in carotenoids, which can have a positive effect on pups’ antioxidants and skin health. It’s also a precursor to vitamin A, which helps with vision, and serves as a great source of soluble fiber.

 

Lentils

These legumes are a rich source of digestible vegetable protein and provide trace nutrients pups need in their diet. They also contain a mixed balance of fiber, which helps maintain normal gastrointestinal health.
 

Coconut oil

This superfood is rich in medium chain triglycerides—specifically lauric acid, which has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It’s also believed to have positive benefits for pups’ skin and coat.

Kale

Packed with antioxidants, B vitamins and vitamin K, kale is also high in phytonutrients, and has been linked to cancer prevention.

Blueberries

This super-fruit contains a class of compounds known as flavonoids, a type of nutrients that have great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers, which can also help protect your pup’s heart.

Chia seeds

A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds can help improve canine cardiac health and aid brain function. They also help control inflammation in pups’ bodies.
