Can chicken and rice make a dog constipated?_


From the dog owners experience, my opinion is that if a dog is eating the entire diet, then no. If it is not eating the entire diet, then yes. But it is never a case of one causing the other. If I could feed my dogs anything they wanted, they would be the first in line for some really nasty, nasty treats that I don't want to get near my table.


No. The reason that canids are so good at digesting food is because they have powerful, stomach acids that help break it down in the stomach. This acid also helps protect agnst food poisoning.

The reason that chicken is sometimes used to help constipation in dogs is because they have the same digestive tract as a dog and can use it. Chicken tends to be rather easy to digest, while beef or other food types are very difficult.

As far as the chicken itself goes, if it is not actually cooked, it is going to be very hard to digest. The skin is going to be a big problem for a dog who already has a difficult time digesting food. Chicken bones are going to be even more difficult for a dog to digest than raw chicken. Chicken meat is even going to be difficult for a dog to digest, since they do not eat meat that is very tender.

My advice is that if a dog is eating the entire diet, and not experiencing any issues, then leave it alone. If it is eating only a few things and is not happy, consider some chicken. Be prepared for some vomiting to occur and if it does, watch the dog carefully to avoid being poisoned.


As mentioned, the digestability of chicken depends on how it is prepared.

That sd, chicken and rice can be a constipating diet for a dog. I found that this occurred when a dog I was trning had a lot of rice in the diet, especially on weekends. The dogs had no GI issues when I went through their food for the week, but I had to put a large amount of the dog's dinner down several times per day on weekends when I had all the kids home.

In addition to the chicken, it might be a good idea to add some more fiber-rich ingredients to this diet. Whole wheat bread can be a great way to increase fiber while also adding more flavor, which might help to satisfy the dog's cravings.


The digestibility of chicken varies depending on the chicken species. From experience with my dogs, we had a hard time digesting the chicken parts of Cornish hens.

However, the fact that your dog is eating every meal makes me think that the mn issue is digestibility. As you correctly assume, the digestion process should be able to handle any other foods than chicken.

If your dog continues to eat the same amount of food each day, this can mean only two things:

The food is of really poor quality and your dog is just eating up any food avlable.

Your dog has some kind of food sensitivity and needs to be put on a special diet.

I would recommend to take a sample of the dog's food to a professional dog food nutritionist and/or a vet. They will be able to analyse your dog's food and see if there is anything to adjust.

In both cases, they should be able to tell you whether your dog should be placed on a special diet, if your dog has any nutritional deficiencies, or if your dog is just being greedy.


To put it bluntly, I would say it's almost certn that your dog is being eaten. There is no other conclusion that can be drawn by looking at the facts that he is still eating every day and his growth and weight gn are the same as last week.

Now the real question is how that happens. I cannot give any conclusive answer without knowing what exactly is in his food, but there are some possibilities.

Boredom - A dog doesn't need to eat to gn weight, but they do need to move around to use their muscles. If a dog is just sitting around, they can gn a lot of weight without moving around at all.

Unsatisfactory food - If the food is not providing enough nutrition for your dog's body, he might overeat to try to compensate. If he isn't gning weight, then it's possible that the food doesn't contn enough nutrients for him. In that case, it's possible that your dog might feel compelled to take more of his food than usual, since the current food isn't providing enough to sustn his needs.

Too much food - A dog could overeat if there is too much food in front of them. This might result in diarrhea or other problems if the dog doesn't get enough of the smaller nutrients in the food.

The only other possibility would be parasites or infection, but as I sd above, I can't offer any help in that regard.


You're not answering a question - you're stating a conclusion.

You say your dog is growing and gning weight. That's not the same as saying he's overeating. As other answers have sd, your dog may have other issues that are making him overeat.

However, it would seem pretty clear that he's eating too much. I would think that if he wasn't having diarrhea (which isn't the same as having a stomach ache) you would notice a large increase in weight. Dogs that are overweight tend to not eat, which may be part of what you are seeing.


Your dog has a specific issue. He is overweight. To get to the bottom of the problem, you will need to perform tests on him and seek assistance. It's not simple, but doable. You need to be able to determine if there are any medical issues present. If you are not a veterinary technician, it's a task for your vet.
