CAN DOGS EAT MEATLOAF?
The meatloaf you eat may not be a good choice for your dog as it could have onions or garlic in it which should not be fed to dogs. There's also a chance it will have spices and MSG that dogs cannot have.
Creating a dog friendly meatloaf recipe is an easy way to ensure that they enjoy a dinner treat too. Try our mini chicken meatloaves or lamb meatloaf for another protein packed meal.
HOW TO MAKE TURKEY MEATLOAF FOR DOGS
This is an easy one bowl recipe and has a great balance of meat, vegetables and rice. The vegetables are grated and finely chopped for easy digestion and to keep the loaf moist.
Pumpkin puree helps keep the meatloaf moist and is a great vegetable for dogs. We use our homemade. If you use tinned, DO NOT use pumpkin pie filling. Check the labels for any ingredients unsuitable for dogs.
Flaxseed was used to bind the meatloaf in place of breadcrumbs. This ensures that the doggie meatloaf is gluten free. This could be substituted with a dog friendly flour if you don't have flaxseed.
The fresh parsley is used for their antioxidants and health benefits.
HOW TO STORE TURKEY VEGGIE MEATLOAF
Store this turkey meatloaf in the fridge in a sealed container. We cut ours into slices and chunks for easier future dinners and snacks. It should keep for up to 4 days.

can these recipes be home canned?
Although I've not yet tried it, I cannot see why not. Hope you enjoy the recipes!
just wanted to say a huge thankyou for the recipes,
we have no problems with him eating now, plate cleared every meal time,
I was just wondering if the meat loaf could be cooked in the slow cooker, and what setting would be best, it would be great if it could be, I am going to try the stew next but have no worries about him eating it.
thankyou again for some super recipes
Thank you so much for your kind words! I have not tried this in a slow cooker but would guess that you could make it at high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 until meatloaf reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees. Glad your dog enjoys the recipes as much as mine do!
