Turkey Necks Updated on: March 27th, 2019

The neck supports the head and helps it move, so the animal may look around. Turkey necks, unlike duck necks and chicken necks, are covered in wrinkly looking skin and not as feathery. They are very meaty so they make a great chew for dogs since the meat acts as floss

why we feed

Turkey necks are great for dental health, and because they have bone in them, are a great source of trace minerals and calcium. They are a great size for larger dogs because they are bigger than chicken or duck necks and are not as easy to swallow. They are also great for dental health.

how to feed

They can be fed by themselves for larger dogs, but can also be cut up for medium to smaller dogs. Because of their size, they are less of a choking hazard. They can be fed as your dog’s 10% bone requirement. You can include a bit of bone in your dog’s every day raw diet, or feed it as a meal replacer a few days a week, and balance your dog’s diet overtime.

Additional info

Turkey is a leaner protein and considered a neutral protein, so it is a great option for dogs with allergies to other poultry, such as chicken or duck. Turkey necks are eaten by people as well, but it is also other name for wrinkly, unseemly skin on the neck and considered a skin condition in humans.
