My little dog has back problems and because of that she gets little to no exercise because I have mobility problems also. I know it has to be my fault because she can't eat if I don't give her food. I am also overweight, but really it seems like her weight came on really fast. Her vision is getting bad also. She is mainly on a raw food diet. She gets one frozen chicken leg a day and has for 3ys. or longer, but this has been a bad winter health wise for me and I have been snacking and giving her snacks also. That' the truth. Thanks.
You did not mention whether you include anything other than a chicken leg for your dog to eat. I am a raw feeder also, but the food I prepare takes into account the vitamins and minerals, carbs, proteins and fats needed by my cat. There are eggs for B vitamins and vitamin A. There is chicken liver for iron (but only a limited amount because chicken livers are very high in vitamin A, more than one in a week is an overdose.) If you are feeding your dog one chicken leg a day he is getting a diet poor enough to harm him.
There is nothing easier than opening a can of top quality dog food
or cooking up some pumpkin/potato & mashing it then adding a little cooked chicken breast or cooked beef.
If you must give it a treat peel & slice a little apple. Don't give it human rubbish.
You desperatly need to help your little dog - if you give it one chicken wing a day it must be starving - why not give it a few top quality dog biscuits for nibbles instead of human food.
