Yes. Chicken is a great source of for dogs, and it’s exactly the sort of food your dog would be eating in the wild.
Be sure to introduce chicken into your dog’s diet gradually. Dogs will enjoy raw chicken:
- Along with a smaller serving of your dog’s usual food
- On its own as a treat
- Dehydrated as a chewy treat
- Use chicken instead of turkey in these tasty meatballs
- Mixed with a healthy grain (such as brown rice) and a vegetable (such as green beans) for homemade dog food
