    Default Chicken Skin

    I was making Chicken for dinner tonight and I had to cut off the skin of three large double chicken breasts.
    My Kelpie got into the bin and ate all 4 bits of it.. The chicken skin was pretty thin although there was quite a lot of it.
    Will she be okay?
    Half of the things I've searched said skin is healthy & other things say it's too fatty and may cause a blockage.
    She ate them whole, didn't chew.. well as far as I know she didn't lol
    She's on a diet of raw chicken although it's minced and she's never swallowed this much whole at once before

    Was she licking her chops as they were going down ?
    This is sure a hell of a lot better than eating the fuzz off tennis balls !

    All pups need a bit of fat in their diet. Pups tummies are pretty awesome mechanisms - so if it doesn't agree with her - as you have found out in the past - she will vomit it up !

    Maybe next time keep a few wings/drumsticks/breasts aside for her dinner !

    I'm getting quite annoyed at her eating everything! My house is clean and things are kept away from her yet she still gets to something lol

    I bet she was in puppy heaven! Mine shared the skin of 12 big drumsticks the other night. The only problem was that they weren't too keen on breaky the next morning

    Oh 'RakshaWw' - she is a pup ! Pups get into 'stuff' ! Don't get annoyed with her !

    The best advice I was given years ago was to get down to the pup's level and see what they can see ! Also take into account her reach !

    If you think your place is puppy proof now - try doing that - and you will see heaps of things pups can get at !

    When Nero was a pup he managed to swallow a piece of bone that was too large for his little tummy to digest. It got stuck in his bum and the vet had to pull it out. I'm sure that sharp piece of bone was the beginning of the end of his relationship with the Vet.

    Brock sits in the kitchen whenever meat is being prepared and gets all the offcuts, skin, fat etc. A bit of chicken skin will do zero harm IMO, probably even good for him/her

    Edit: A dog I see at the beach regularly ended up at the vets in a critical condition with pancreatitus(sp?) from eating all the fat out of a BBQ tray, so although little bits are fine, stupidly too much can cause problems
