Can I feed my dog chicken?
It is true that some chicken is high in protein, but in small portions and with a high omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid ratio. This can be a problem, because the omega-6 fatty acids are a major contributor to the inflammatory and "wound healing" responses of the body.
However, in moderation, some chicken is perfectly safe. See Chicken on Dogs for more information about feeding your dog chicken.
You can use meat from chickens rsed without antibiotics (See The Real Chicken News). That has a good omega-3:omega-6 fatty acid ratio and is safe for your dog, but unfortunately, it is much more expensive. Chicken rsed without antibiotics has been proven to be safe for dogs.
Chicken is also safe in moderation for cats.
Chicken can be a healthy part of your dog's diet. If you choose meat from a chicken rsed without antibiotics, you can be confident it is safe for your dog. In general, small amounts of chicken are safe. However, you should always use common sense in your choices and take a fresh, meaty bite out of each package of meat you feed your dog.
Make sure that your dog is always supervised when he's eating to avoid him choking. If your dog does choke, get your vet's help immediately.
Feeding a diet of chicken and vegetables is a healthy diet. It's the perfect solution for feeding dogs when they are recovering from a severe case of kennel cough or have intestinal parasites. You can read all about that in the article Chicken and Vegetables for Dogs.
Feeding your dog chicken is better for him than feeding him meat and corn based commercial diets, which are made up of a huge percentage of "fillers". Those fillers are simply empty carbohydrates that make your dog's poop heavier but provide no nutrients.
In the end, feeding dogs chicken is the best thing you can do for them. If they live long and happy lives, your dog will be the happiest dog in the world.
