Is Chicken Jerkey Bad for dogs?
I used to give Chicken Jerky to my dogs, is it bad for them? I stopped because I felt resembling it was too hard and it would tear up their intestine. Thoughts/knowledge?
Dogs have very strong jaws and teeth. They can put away raw bones and jerky will actually verbs up as they eat it & their stomach digests it.
I give my dogs uneven when they get caged for the monthly meds. My med box tells me to contain the dog so it doesn't get lick off, so they all get a small piece.
I wouldn't do it on a each day basis, but make sure it's the low sodium brand. The shaky won't hurt them, but the excess salt can.
Give your dog shaky made specifically for dogs, or better yet, CET chews. Dogs love them, they dissolve rather than swell and cause obstruction or punctures, and they have an enzyme that cuts down on tartar build up on the dog's teeth.
Try to get jerky made specifically for dogs. Some convulsive is too salty.
