Chicken And Beef?

So, my young new dog was let's say "just a bit" overweight and the vet gave me a diet for her that includes Chicken for her second meal. So the diet worked quite well and her weight came down and she's doing fine .....however, during our latest vet visits he has been saying not to feed chicken or beef because it is a high allergy food for dogs....beef does not agree with my dog so I avoid that but this is the same vet who gave me the special diet including chicken. Then my friend, Linda, also a dog owner tells me that chicken and beef are the high allergy foods for dogs and she feeds kibble with lamb.

What's the story with chicken now? Is it a taboo food for dogs? I'm just remembering all the greyhound photos of greyhounds eating the raw chicken breasts and loving it. Anyone know the real story on chicken?

It's not bad, in fact it can be healthy. However, some dogs do have a sensitivity to it. If your dog is ok with chicken then there's no reason to avoid it.

 

It gives my dog the big D.

Chicken and beef do seem to be the most common meat allergies in dogs. But...if your dog does not have a problem with it, I see no reason to stop feeding it :dunno Allergies do develop over time, after repeated exposure to an ingredient. You can try rotating protein sources and food types if you are really concerned.

I would still say wean him into it. Better to be safe than sorry.
