by Rosey Saunders

When it comes to our canine companions, we all want to provide the best nutrition possible. Chicken is certainly a firm favourite here at Billy + Margot, with its high protein content and low calories, what's not to love?

Chicken can be a healthy and beneficial addition to a dog's diet, here are some potential benefits of incorporating chicken into a dog's diet:

  • High-quality protein: Chicken is a lean source of protein that is essential for dogs to build and repair tissues, support healthy growth, and maintain a strong immune system. All of our Chicken recipes include at least 60% protein levels.
  • Easily digestible: Chicken is easily digestible for dogs, making it a good option for dogs with sensitive stomachs. 
  • Joint health: Chicken contains glucosamine and chondroitin, which are natural compounds that promote joint health and reduce inflammation. This can be especially beneficial for dogs with arthritis or joint problems.
  • Weight management: Chicken is a low-fat protein source that can help dogs maintain a healthy weight. It provides the necessary nutrients without excessive calories, making it a good choice for dogs on a weight management diet.
  • Improved heart health: Chicken is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids, which can help reduce cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease in dogs.
