I picked up a rotisserie chicken tonight. I took some of it and diced it up for the dogs and added it to their kibble. I did not, however, give them the skin because it can be a little high in fat. And it was just a plain jane chicken – no fancy spices added so it was ok to give to them.
The benefits of chicken for dogs seem pretty obvious. It is a low fat protein with essential amino acids and glucosamine. Remember not to give them cooked bones and skin. The bones can splinter and the skin is really high in fat.
Since my dogs are just getting a test of the different tastes, I didn’t give them a whole bunch, probably about 1/4 of a cup for the big guys and 1 tablespoon to the little guy.
