My dog won't eat dog food. I cook her chicken and liver and rice is this OK?
Yes it is perfectly okay. I had a dalmation that used to get bladder stones. It was from the dry dog food. His vet put him on a chicken liver and rice diet. He never had another stone. Perfectly healthy and cheap.
My dog also does not eat dog food. I boil chicken and hamburger for her. She likes green beans, sweet potato and carrots. She does well with this diet. I also give her a vitamin every day.
My Husky is eating only half boiled chicken with rice twice daily. Is it good for its health?
It is safe to eat, but not a balanced diet. Consult your vet to see what else to give him.
Adding specific cooked vegetables to his rice and chicken can help give him a more rounded diet for his requirements.
On the internet there's lots of "what a dog can eat, and what a dog shouldn't or can't eat", which is very important since they can not eat all of the same kinds of vegies us humans can.
I am providing a link which discusses which foods huskies need and how to feed them.
It is important not to feed a dog right before exercising, or right after exercising. Feed the dog and wait two hours before allowing him to exercise.
Also it is important to not feed the dog until 30 minutes after exercising, as well.
If you are feeding a mixed diet of raw and kibble food, it is important not to feed them in the same meal, since the dog will have different processes for digesting each type of food.
