In pet food, turkey can be used as a fresh meat (fresh turkey, deboned turkey, freshly prepared turkey) or as a pre-prepared, dry meat meal (turkey meal, dried turkey, dehydrated turkey). When the ingredient is listed simply as 'turkey' it usually refers to the fresh form.
Turkey meat is easy to digest, highly palatable and provides an excellent source of protein. It is lower in calories and fat than chicken and is therefore often used in light and senior diets.
As with all meats, the quality of the turkey used in pet foods can vary considerably so for more details on the turkey found in your dog's food, please contact the manufacturer directly.
