Hello again Rita,

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. No problem there, that should be just fine, there are no medical reasons why you should not do this, and I am sure Gizmo will appreciate it.

2. Of course chicken in it's own is not a balanced diet so the bulk of his daily food intake should be a commercial dog diet of some kind, but if 10% of it is chicken then that's reasonable.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
