The skin of a turkey, if fed to a dog in large quantities, can cause a life threatening condition called pancreatitis. Also, just like humans, dogs are susceptible to Salmonella. This can be found in the tartar of the turkey so avoid giving that to a dog. Additionally, you have to be careful with bones. Dogs can choke and die on turkey bones. Overall, however, in low quantities, turkey is not too harmful to dogs, as long as these guidelines are followed.
