Of all the meats available for consumption turkey is the healthiest of them all - mainly because it is lower in fat. What a great treat it is for us and our dogs when we get to enjoy turkey left overs for the entire week or longer. Grab hold of a healthy snack for your dog and at the same time envelope dog wellness practices by making his treats at home instead of store bought - for a healthier, less toxic treat with ingredients you can rely on.

Dr. Jon shares this dog treat recipe using left over turkey.

Lazy Turkey Loaf (for dogs)


• 2 pounds ground turkey
• 1/2 cup cooked vegetables
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder*
• 1 egg
• 1/2 cup quick-cook barley
• 1 cup quick-cook oats
• 4 ounces canned no-fat gravy


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a mixing bowl combine turkey, vegetables, fresh garlic , egg, barley and oats.
3. Mix thoroughly.
4. Spoon into a greased loaf pan and pat down meat mixture until level. Spread gravy on top of loaf and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
5. Cool and cut into six even slices. Store unused portions in refrigerator.

* Use fresh garlic, 1-2 cloves instead of garlic powder. Although small amounts of garlic powder is fine - why not use fresh?
