Shredded Chicken Salad

Shredded Chicken Salad

This is one of those "hmmm let's see what we have in the freezer" kind of meals. The majority of Kirby's meals are wet so I decided to stay with this drier version.  I also decided not to cook the veggies to retain that crunch he likes but I still finely chopped them with my blender to ensure his body can absorb all the nutrients.

Kirby "the carnivore" loves his meaty jerky whether it be chicken, beef, venison, or fish!  I'm always testing new flavor combinations trying to utilize ingredients that are not only tasty but provide healthy benefits for his body.

It's spring yet it's a chilly 54 degrees and raining so I decided Kirby would enjoy some soup this week. Actually soup is good any time of the year since it can be eaten cold or warmed up.  Soup contains water which is a great benefit to a dog's digestive system for new cell formation, detoxification, removal of waste, temperature regulation, nutrient absorption and digestion. There's a reason people say soup is good for the soul... and cold days... and sick ones... and, well you get the idea.
