I'd like to chime in here...

As far as turkey skin being bad for a dog, I can't see that to be true. Maybe after the seasoning has taken effect but the skin in and of itself is not bad for a dog.

Moist canned food, however, is not the greatest food to be giving any pet. Most canned food containes an enormous amount of sodium and nitrates. Plus, the preservatives in most canned food aren't good for pets either. It may be good for the coat but terrible for the teeth and blood.

I breed Labs and I only feed my dog and cats dry food and table scraps once in a while (the cats LOVE tomatoes :D ) Dogs adn cats are carnivores (sp) so meat, typically chicken, beef, and fish, are excellent sources of many nutrients. The only reason I feel an animal should eat canned food is if they already have dental problems whereas they can not chew kibble style food or if they are getting on in years and it is time for their "last meal".

I'm not trying to point fingers. If people want to feed their pets wet food than go for it. I am no veterinarian. My choice of food is Ukanuba dry. The animals always clean their plates (bowls).
