Healthy Pet Nutrition & Thanksgiving Goodness…

Pumpkin, sweet potato, harvest deliciousness. The best part about the start of the holiday season is the indulging – “a little of this and a little of that.” It’s so easy to just taste it all and maybe go back for another round. But, what about for our fur friends? “A little of this and a little of that” adds up to a lot for our pet companions – remember to keep portion control in mind so you all can enjoy the flavors of the season.

Why not spice up their Thanksgiving meal with savory flavor and something new, like a Turkey Banana Cream Pup Pie? Mmmmmmmmmmmm good! Try this easy recipe from our friends at The Honest Kitchen:


  • 1 ½ lb of Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup of Preference™ Dehydrated dog food, rehydrated with 1 cup of warm water
  • 2 tbsp of Milled Flaxseed
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil Full
  • Fat Plain Yogurt
  • Dehydrated Banana Chips
  • Coconut Flakes

What to do

  • Mix in Turkey with rehydrated Preference, Flaxseed and Coconut Oil until ingredients have been mixed evenly.
  • Roll into meatballs, then roll each meatball in yogurt, and top with Coconut Flakes and Banana Chips.
  • Refrigerate and take out when you’re ready to serve!

All cooked out? Don’t fret and certainly don’t feed from the family table... order a perfectly balanced and nutritional pet meal for your furry friends to feast on from the Pawbar!
