Does anyone know if boiled or roitisserie chicken is a bad idea for a Corgi?  Our boy loves turkey and chicken but I don't know if there's anything wrong with giving him a little in moderation.  He is on a special food to balance out his PH level in his urine.  The food is so bland that I feel the need to sneak him a little taste of something tasty.  Your thoughts?

Thanks for the feedback.  We finally had a dermatologist weigh in on his skin issue and it turned out to be a staph infection!  I didn't know much about them until now, but they can really create havok on our furry friends.  Bert has been on a pretty strong antibiotic for a couple of weeks now after lots of testing and then having it typed to determine what the culprit was.  I'll keep you posted:)

I can tell you about my dog. I didn't want to continue with the prescription diet forever, so my vet gave me a diet that has worked for Lilliput. Protein sources on her diet can come from poultry or egg. No beef, lamb or fish. I suspect that if you look at the source of the protein on the prescription food you'll find it's chicken. So, in my experience, I would have no problem giving my corgi chicken. Again, you should ask your vet if that makes sense for your pup.

I really hate that prescription food!

Just a note. We had Cally on a special bland diet when she had intestinal issues and the vet prescribed boiled chicken and rice for awhile for a super bland easy diet. She told us at one point that we could just get the rotisserie chicken if we peeled the skin off, but that the boiled chicken was easier on her digestion. That said, a quick call to the vet will tell you if it's ok.

I'd ask the vet first, for sure. I'll give my dogs some of the rotisserie chicken, I think every now and then it's a nice treat. I'd avoid giving the skin since that's where most of the salt is, and too high in fat too.

If he is on a special diet I wouldn't add anything (including treats) without discussing it with your vet first. Adding stuff to the diet defeats the purpose and you may as well not even feed the special diet. If your vet says yes, there should be no problem adding a bit of boiled skinless, boneless chicken breast. I personally wouldn't add rotisserie chicken because oftentimes those are seasoned or marinated. Just stick with plain ole chicken breast, boiled, but check with your vet first. You can also make homemade chicken jerky by cutting thin strips of chicken breast and baking it super low for a few hours. There are lots of recipes online for that.
