Can I give my puppy the heart/gizzards/whatever that nasty stuff is from my turkey?

I have them in my roaster alongside the turkey with only chicken broth, no seasonings or anything else. Is there any of that stuff she can't have? I figured I'd cook a little brown rice and mash it all together, whatever she can have. Also, if she can, how much should I give her? Just a little each day mixed with her dry food? She's about 3 1/2 months old.

  • I wouldn't. Mostly because I wouldn't want to clean it up if it gave my animal the runs.

  • Maybe a nibble or two, and save it for a treat, too much will make him sick.

  • The neck has small bones that could splinter so unless you pick the meat off, don't use that. I would cut the heart and liver into small pieces for a treat. Just a little bit each day. The gizzards may be a little too tough for a puppy.

  • Can if you want. As long as it is fully cooked.

  • My 11yo DD eats the neck ;o). I gave her (puppy) a taste of the...something...just a nibble, and DH gave the rest to our older bigger dog.
