Why You'll Love This Recipe

If your dog isn’t feeling well, then they may need a special meal, just like you! I know when I’m not feeling well, I want a really simple and bland meal that doesn’t include any fruits or veggies, just simple protein and carbs to coat my stomach and not make it feel worse. 

So, you will love this simple chicken dog food recipe for your dogs as it includes simple healthy ingredients that will make your dog feel better and give them some nourishment! This simple chicken dog food recipe only has three ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen: chicken, rice, and pumpkin. 

If your dog is having any kind of GI upset or diarrhea, then feeding them a really simple meal such as chicken, white rice, and pumpkin will help. The white rice is low in fiber and easy to digest. The chicken gives them lean protein. And pumpkin is a super food that’s known to help with GI upset. Pumpkin can add bulk to their stool, which can help with diarrhea.

FAQ's

Why is boiled chicken good for dogs?

Steaming or boiling meat is a healthier way to preserve nutrients. Boiling chicken is a great way to cook chicken for dogs. Gently cooked food is best for dogs for digestion and boiling chicken will cook it at a lower temperature than if you bake it.

How much homemade food should I feed my dog?

This all depends on your dog’s size, current weight, and activity level. Always check with your vet to make sure you are feeding your dog the appropriate amount of food for their size and age.

But a general rule is you should be feeding your dog 2% to 5% of their body weight in fresh food. And small dogs weighing about 20 pounds or less can even get up to 10%! I have an entire article dedicated to How Much Homemade Dog Food Should I Feed My Dog? with a formula you can use for your dog's weight.

How much pumpkin should I give my dog?

Start small if you haven’t been feeding your dog pumpkin. Start with 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of dog. Aim for about 1 teaspoon for small dogs, 1 tablespoon for medium dogs, and 2 tablespoons for large dogs. 

Can I feed my dog this all the time?

While this is a healthy meal for when your dog isn’t feeling well, it’s not healthy to only feed your dog this. Just like you need fruits, veggies, and variety in your diet, so does your dog! Reserve this meal for when your dog isn’t feeling well or even for special occasions. This would be like a treat meal for them, just like you sometimes eat a meal without fruits and veggies, it’s okay to allow your dog the same pleasure.
