Considering how many dog foods contain it, it's a safe bet that you can feed your dog chicken.

In fact, it's a good source of protein, and cooked chicken can even be substituted for or added to his regular meal.

The most common allergens are beef, dairy, wheat, egg, chicken, lamb, soy, pork, rabbit, and fish.

Four feedings a day are usually adequate to meet nutritional demands.
