The gravies that we enjoy are not good for our dogs because they are far too salty. Here, instead, is a gravy that is perfect for dogs—meaty, rich, delicious, and with some good antioxidants, so it’s healthy as well. Organ meat in the form of liver gives it a vitamin E boost, too. It does take a bit of time to prepare, but you can then pour it into an ice-cube tray, freeze it, and take out cubes to use when you need them.
1 Tbsp oil
1 lb (approx 500 g) ground turkey
4 oz (100 g) liver
¼ cup frozen peas
3 cups water
Step 1 Heat the oil in a frying pan and
brown the ground turkey and liver.
Step 2 Once the meats are browned, add
the frozen peas then pour in 3 cups of
water. Put a lid on the pan and leave to
simmer for 30 minutes.
Step 3 Remove the pan from the heat
and leave to cool slightly then place the
mixture in a food processor or blender and
blitz until smooth.
It may still look a bit grainy once you
have done this, but your dog won’t mind!
Frozen in an ice-cube tray, this gravy will
keep for up to two months. Warm to room
temperature before feeding.
