I know chocolate is bad for a dog. I just read that some nuts are bad but I would like to know if a dog can eat turkey? Also if a dog can eat p-nut butter? I read that garlic was bad but I was also told that garlic is a natural way to keep fleas off the dog - so is it bad or is it all right for the dog to eat?
I have never really heard that nuts are bad for dogs but hey who know's there may be a dog out there that has reactions to them. Garlic, I'm sure in a small amount it wouldn't be bad, I should look into it in large amounts. Peanut butter I use from time to time, its fattening so I wouldn't use it to much. Turkey is technically poisenous to dogs, the chemical that makes us tired from eating it, is the culprit (I'll look into what it is called/
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid and is not toxic to dogs. Turkey is a good alternative for dogs allergic to other protein sources. If your dog gets sick after eating turkey, it's not because of the tryptophan.
However, if given too much fatty turkey skin, a dog could develop pancreatitis.
Here is the deal with Turkey. Dogs can eat it raw with no issues. If you cook it, do not feed them the skin. Feeding the skin can cause pancretitis. Garlic is fine for dogs, I have used it for years when I cook liver to use for bait in the show ring. They actually like the flavor of it. Peanut butter is also safe, just remember moderation. Nuts are ok in moderation except for Macadamia's. They can cause tempory poralisis. Onions are also bad for dogs. As well as other processed meats, such as lunch meats. NO Raisins or Grapes either, they can cause renal failure. With Chocolate the type and the amount play a huge part in the dangers. But always best to completely avoid it.

My friend said his two small dogs, two different breeds i can't identify offhand, but likable little fellas, were both seriously ill because, as it turned out by the vet, he was feeding them ground turkey about 3 times a week. They recovered once turkey was removed.
