Chicken Is A Superfood

Have you noticed your dog acting strangely?  Has his appetite waned?  Have you heard him sneezing or coughing?  Has he started having accidents in the house even though he’s housebroken?  It’s important to watch for signs of strange behavior.  That doesn’t always mean a trip to the vet.  Sometimes, a tummy ache and soft stool can be cured with something as simple as boiled chicken.  I find it best to keep at least one of the following items in my house at all times: chicken and chicken broth.  I find it best to boil the chicken and pour the (cooled) broth over it when it comes time to serve it to your pet.  For those days when pet food is too harsh, I will give my pets a strict chicken-only diet until it clears up.  It is rare that they don’t start perking up in a day or two.


Remember: when an animal gets sick, hydration is key.  Every living creature needs water to survive.  If the chicken doesn’t work, consult your vet immediately.  You may also add Pedialyte to their drinking water.  It won’t hurt them, but may replace important fluids they’ve lost while being sick.  For more tips on animal health and awareness, follow my blog!

About Kristin Miller

I've been taking care of animals all my life. After a year working in doggie daycares, I got to see firsthand how time away from home can cause a terrible strain on a beloved pet's mood, anxiety, and physical well-being. The year I spent working for the Humane Society only added to my belief that animals don't belong in a cage. That is when I decided to start my own business and take care of animals in their own homes. Not only does it reduce stress, it also puts the owner's mind at ease, because I can check on their homes, as well as their pets, while they are away.
