Q:

Can dogs eat chicken?

A:

Properly cooked chicken without bones is safe for dogs to eat. Many dogs enjoy the taste of chicken, which adds protein to their diets and is a nutritious supplement to dog food.

An easy way to prepare chicken for a dog is to boil it in a pot until it reaches a safe temperature. Chicken cooked for dogs should always be well-cooked. Owners should not add seasoning, which can irritate a dog's stomach. White or brown rice makes a good complement to cooked chicken. A meal of chicken and rice can be beneficial for dogs who suffer from digestion problems or an upset stomach.
