Like many of us, you probably want to treat your dogs to something nice. Does that mean we should spend a fortune to do so? I’ve got some great news. NO!

No offence to anyone who actually likes chicken feet, but have you have passed the chicken selection in the grocery store and seen those strange looking chicken feet?

Well, raw chicken feet are excellent for dogs! Okay, before you say gross, think about it. Dogs are carnivores. Yeah, I know there are new studies that say this is false, that dogs are omnivores. Well, I let you do your own research on that, but here is a link that supports my decision. (http://www.rawfed.com/myths/omnivores.html )

Now, my dogs love raw chicken feet! Chicken feet consists of bones, skin, and tendons, but no muscles. These are packed with protein, calcium, collagen, and cartilage that are easily absorbed by the body. These are the essential nutrients required for good joint movement to minimize arthritis and joint pain.

Another inexpensive healthy excellent treat your dogs will go crazy over is raw FROZEN chicken wings. Now, before I go any further I’m sure you are thinking, “I heard that was bad for them!”. Raw chicken wings are okay. I will explain, when you cook a chicken wing the bone breaks down collagen. Without collagen, the bone is brittle and easy to break. This means the bone can break and split and really hurt your pooch. So, remember RAW & I like frozen chicken wings. They are great for keeping their teeth clean and breath fresh. PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER TO NEVER LEAVE YOUR DOG UNSUPERVISED WHILE CHEWING ANY TOY OR TREAT.

Lastly, I really like fish skin sticks. Also, known as cod skins, they are dehydrated cod skin. These are excellent for more than ONE reason. They provide a healthy and satisfying snack that is high in protein and low in carbs. They also make a deliciously satisfying crunch which dogs will appreciate, much the way you might love the crunch of a crunchy potato chip.

I will add a few more notes here, please remember when adding anything raw or different to your dog’s diet, that they may have some loose bowels. Present new foods slowly. Also, if you’re worried or your pooch has any health or diet issues, please consult your veterinarian or nutritionist for your pooch.

Always air on the side of caution, we are giving you some really inexpensive ideas to really treat them like a Royal Pooch!
