Chicken is a very popular food for pets. At an average of 24% fat, it is higher in fat than our other whole animal diets because the skin is included. This fat layer
under the skin and in the body cavity contains a goodsource of omega 6 fatty acids. While fantastic for young kittens and puppies, chicken diets can be unsuitable for pets that are not active or for those with inflammatory diseases or problem skin disorders. Do not feed adult pets exclusively chicken. Chicken should only constitute 10-15 % of the total diet at the most.
Whole chicken patties contain the entire bird except the head, feet, feathers, stomach, crops, and intestines. All the bones are grindable so bone content in poultry is higher than patties made from larger animals. Organs make up approximately 8% of the patty - this includes lungs, liver, heart and kidneys. On average over all our protiens, patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood and 10% fat. We DO NOT add anything to our foods. You may supplement as needed.
