Carnivora Chicken Dinner is a finely ground whole chicken carcass with 5% veggie and fruit mix. It includes romaine lettuce, bok choy, celery, carrots, apples, pears, and blueberries.
Chicken is one of the most popular raw diets. This is often because chicken raw food is lower in price. Chicken has a higher fat content because they store most of their fat in a layer under the skin and in the body cavity. The fat content in the raw diet is typically higher than other protein types because the skin is usually included as the whole carcass is used.
Because the chicken is higher in fat it is not the best choice for inactive dogs or those with inflammatory condition or skin disorders. Chicken can also be one of the protein types that dogs will build up a intolerance for based on the fact that it one of the most regularly fed protein sources. However, it is a well tolerated food and very palatable for dogs. There are not many dogs that won't gobble it down.
Due to it's higher fat content, chicken is often the protein source of choice for puppies. However, it is also good to cycle puppies protein sources when 4-6 months old. As they get used to new and different flavours they will grow to be a willing eater who will accept new proteins into their diet without fussiness.
Compared to other protein sources chicken is low in zinc and iron. With any raw fed diet it is important to cycle protein types often (as much as every few days). This is important because no single protein source will provide all the same nutrients. By cycling your dog will be given a more well rounded & balanced diet. It is also important to supplement with a Fish Oil or Sea Kelp for Omega 3's and other essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
