is turkey poisonous to dogs?
Hello my 3 year old yorkiepoodle is walking funny since only a few hours ago, he isn't wanting to walk but when I do get him up he walks kind of stiff legged when I got home the only thing I found down was a turkey leg that he somehow got out of the trash so I was wondering if turkey was poisonous to dogs. We have regularly been feeding him for a year or two now 1/3 of a cup of dry dog food mixed with a spoon full of ceaser’s wet dog food.

No turkey is not poisonous to your dog. I'am worried that he may have swallowed a small bone. I would take him to a vet and have him checked. He may have got something else out of the trash, and ate it. Who knows? Take him to a vet to be sure.

The dark meat is higher in fat and can cause pancreatitis.  Also, as mentioned, the bone is dangerous.  Please take your dog to the vet - just to be sure.

Thank you for your comment, you are right about the dark meat. I just spoke with my vet and he did say the dark meat was bad as you said. However he said the breast meat would not hurt the dog. I wondered, because I have given small amounts of the white meat to my dogs. They never had a problem with it. I raise Shih-Tzus and many of the vets in my area have bought them. They know that I sometimes feed my dogs different kinds of meat...wouldn't think they would buy one if I was doing something wrong!
