I recall when I was a kid that chicken-in-a-can was a thing, but as I recall it was all disgustingly soft and jelly-like, very unappetising. I can see it would be great as animal food though.
Spot on there.

I had it once, on a sailing boat, after a long, rough three day crossing from Scheveningen.

I don't know what we were expecting but were imagining something akin to roast chicken - especially after three days without a proper meal.

The pale, jelly 'thing' that slid out of the can, and landed on a plare with a plop was memorable, for all the wrong reasons.

Once was definitely enough.

When I was first married in England my, now ex-wife, made Coq au Vin with canned chicken. I was in love so I ate it all but not an experience I would recommend or care to repeat.

It is a actually 6 x 200g cans, so more like 3 SFR per for a tiny can of chicken.

I would still go with a fresh product and simply cook it myself in a large bunch. The same or a lesser cost per kilo, but a better quality and safety or the product.

Yeah, it is! I didn't notice that either. How unusual, normally websites tend to trick you thinking things are cheap, not expensive.

You feed chicken breast to the dogs ?
I'd eat that myself and consider buying a Döner Kebab for the dogs.

While the Muttley Crew would be thrilled with a Donnerkebab, I would not be thrilled with the results.

(Being serious now) Which is what this thread is all about.

When a dog is ill and cannot eat his normal food - whether due to a passing gastro upset or something more sinister - one common recommendation is to fast and then try a bland chicken and rice meal. Sometimes it does the trick... and sometimes It's just the start of a long and winding road.

If you've been through this particular journey, you learn to keep a stash on hand of the things that might help.

Hopefully Sonnenhund will find the canned chicken he needs, or at least a workable substitute.

Re: Canned Chicken?

First I'd like to thank everybody for their helpful (or sometimes not so helpful but humorous) suggestions. Muchas Gracias, Amigos!

Second, I should have been more clear that I meant canned chicken breast, I had absolutely no idea that someone would try to stuff a nearly whole chicken, bones and all, into a can. And while preparing fresh chicken ourselves would be a better option, between 3 dogs, 2 young children, and two jobs, we're barely able to feed ourselves quality cooked food.

Lastly, the dog in question is 18 years old, and things don't look all that great for her; if I could give her Filet Mignon I'd be doing that. We're doing our best for her, she's a good girl.

Here she is, young and strong.

Re: Canned Chicken?

She's an absolute beauty, Sonnenhund!

18 is a fantastic age. There is nothing like the love of, and for, our oldies. Every day together is a gift.

Do whatever you know is right for your girl.

Wishing you all the very best.


(And I'll keep an eye out for canned chicken as I run errands.)

Re: Canned Chicken?

She’s beautiful. Wow! 18! You are definitely doing a good job for your girl. Mine is 16 and 7 months (we count the months now), and after years of needing to drop a few kg, we’ve been trying to keep the weight on. She eats a lot of ground meat and chicken breast or thigh that I cook and run through the food processor. But I have time for that stuff. meloncollie is right, every day is a gift.

Re: Canned Chicken?

And I just remembered. The canned chicken in the US was from Swanson, I think.

Re: Canned Chicken?

Another thought: Cat food.

When Haifisch would go through a period of inappetence I sometimes turned to cat food to 'kickstart' his eating. Cat food tends to have a different smell and texture that often appeals to poorly pups.

Take a gander at the user photos of Almo Natur Hühnerbrust, for instance. From the photos it looks rather like canned chicken. (Taste, however, I can't say.)
https://www.zooplus.ch/customerpictu.../legend/358227

Ingredients:
Hühnerbrust:
Hühnerbrust (75%), Hühnerbrühe (24%), Reis (1%).

Again, all the best.

Re: Canned Chicken?

Just remembered one more: Baby food.

I've occasionally turned to baby food because it is bland, easily digestible, and can be licked up rather than chewed. Both Hipp and Holle make a chicken only product. However, the chicken content is low, IIRC around 40%, as it's pureed. So fewer calories for more effort. And of course, the taste and texture will be nothing like canned chicken., so might not interest your dog..

Just tossing the idea out there because I've used baby food as my 'Hail Mary Pass' when needs must.

That Almo Nature is labeled to not be used for normal feeding, only as a supplement. I know our kittens absolutely love it. This suggests there is little nutritional value. Other than the protein, that is.

You can buy it in bulk from iPet.ch. And delivery is rarely more than a couple of days.

Re: Canned Chicken?

I do remember many decades ago camping out in Arizona, one of the party producing the canned chicken, from memory we enjoyed it, was just the once and no memory now how it was cooked over the camp fire or whatever we had with it.

Re: Canned Chicken?

Again, a hearty thank you to everyone!

Funnily enough, this weekend my wife found regular canned chicken breast at Migros, as well as Tuna and Salmon. We'd been looking forever, never saw it before. Now that we have a big stack of very expensive canned chicken breast, our dog only wants to eat her regular food...

Could be worse though, she's eating!

And yes, canned chicken breast, at least in the US, is nothing like the monstrosity of a whole chicken being forced into a can... I wouldn't feed that to my dog, my family, my friends, casual acquaintances, my worst enemy... etc...
