Homemade Meatloaf for Dogs – Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Homemade Meatloaf for Dogs

Dark meat turkey is loaded with good nutrition, including protein, magnesium and selenium. This is great for dogs (great for people, too). If you buy ground turkey at the market to make dog food with, make sure to get the kind with a little more fat added. Your dog doesn't require low-fat meals, and the “breast meat only” packs will be more expensive anyway.

This recipe is packed with veggies, so your dog get a nutrition boost. We've included frozen mixed veggies, but you could grate up fresh carrots, apples (no seeds), celery and more.


  • 2 pounds ground turkey, dark meat and skin included
  • 1 cup oats
  • Half a bag of frozen mixed veggies (avoid green leafies)
  • 2 eggs
