Things to know before you feed your dog chicken

Although chicken has a reputation for its mildness, you may be surprised to know there are some possible risks associated with this meat:

  • Avoid salmonella or other bacterial infections by cooking chicken thoroughly before feeding it to your dog.
  • Plain chicken is best for your pooch. Don’t add any seasoning, onions, or garlic when cooking your dog’s chicken at home.
  • Chicken is the third most prevalent food allergy for dogs. If you think your furry friend may be suffering from a chicken allergy, remove the ingredient from their diet and contact your vet right away.
  • Keep bones out of your dog’s plate. They are a choking hazard and can even puncture your pup’s stomach and intestines.
  • Stick to the chicken breast, which is low in fat and healthier for your dog. Fatty foods can lead to pancreatitis in dogs.
