Be Careful When Feeding Dogs with Chicken Broth
Yes, you can let your dog eat chicken broth in moderation. Plain chicken broth could be good for dogs because it may contain ingredients that promote joint health (among many other benefits). Not all chicken broths, however, are safe for dogs to eat. You need to be extra careful with store-bought chicken broths as they may contain ingredients that are toxic to dogs.
First, it’s not uncommon for store-bought chicken broths to contain ingredients like onion and garlic powder, which are an absolute no-no for household pets. If you plan to let your dog eat chicken broth then it’s best to stay away from store-brought products. You have a clear view of the ingredients if you make it on your own.
In addition to the base ingredients, you also need to be careful with the seasonings and preservatives that may be used for certain chicken broths. For example, some chicken broths may contain a large amount of sodium, which can make your dog sick and go through gastrointestinal upsets.
