5- Combine the ingredients in a bowl and serve to your doggie. 

Notes:

  • You can swap out the peas for another vegetable that’s safe for dogs. Know your breed when switching out veggies. Also, know your dog’s preferences as well. If they don’t prefer certain vegetables, don’t use them. Just be sure to stick with 1 tablespoon of whatever vegetable you choose.
  • You can swap out the olive oil for vegetable oil, salmon oil, or coconut oil. All of these are great choices for your dog’s health.
  • Do not use canned peas. They have added sodium, which isn’t the best choice for your dog and their health. You can use fresh or frozen.
  • If you boiled chicken with bones in it, be careful to ensure that no bones or pieces of bone end up in the final product.
  • An easy way to shred chicken is use a hand mixer on low.
  • This recipe is approved by the MSCPA-Angell Animal Medical Center.
