Is dark meat turkey safe for dogs?

Just made meals of unseasoned green veggies and dark turkey meat (no skin) for my dog since they didnt gave white meat. Read online dark meat might be dangerous??? How much is dangerous?

If you're just talking about a 1-time thing, or a special treat, no biggie. If the amount you're giving your dog is less than 2-4% of its body weight, you shouldn't have any issue at all. If you're talking about overall diet balance, and feeding a particular kind of meat every single day, feeding only dark turkey meat isn't something you'll want to do.

I don't know of anything inherently bad about dark meat turkey that would harm a dog. Dark meat of any animal typically has a higher fat content so you want to be careful how much you're feeding and how it fits into the overall diet. I've bought ground dark turkey meat and added a 1/3 cup to my dogs' dinners once a week with no problem.
