Feeding a Dog Chicken?

How much chicken thighs deboned with the skin should I give my dog? He's an 18 pound 14-year-old Puggle and all he wants to do is eat chicken or meatballs.

Please be very careful feeding dogs chicken or meatballs.

In some dogs either (dark meat chicken or beef/pork meatballs) can causes pancreatitis.

Also, some dogs are allergic to chicken (we have one that was tested for that) and he isn't allergic, but he is sensitive to it (causes fur loss).

Talk to your vet to get his/her opinion if it is safe for your pup and if so, how much per serving and what additives need to be included to keep a healthy balance.

14 is getting to be a senior pup and they have totally different needs than young pups.

Post back with an update! Blessings to you and your pupster!

Commercially raised chicken has a lot of fat. Especially the skin. I think it would be too much for an older dog. You could work with your Vet to find a homemade recipe that would work for your dog. It might be easier to start with a good commercial food and add a few pieces of chicken so he thinks he is getting something special.

Or you may be able to find a canned food that he likes as well as chicken and meatballs. Older dogs may have sensitive teeth and do better with softer foods. Go ahead and experiment with ideas but keep in mind that an older dog really needs a balanced diet.

I'd consult your vet. An all meat diet is probably not the best for any pup, for worries of lack of fiber and vitamins.

I would say he can have 3 thighs if they are small and cut up. However, you should mix some rice or pasta with this in order for him to have a good meal.

Make sure you check with the vet first.
