Idea Exchange: Fussy eaters? Bring on the chicken!


How one veterinary clinic handles patients that aren't eating.

We purchase bulk-size chicken breast from a local warehouse club, boil it, shred it into bite-size pieces, place the pieces into small resealable bags, and store them in the freezer. Then if we have a hospitalized patient or boarder that isn't eating, we take out one of these individual packets, defrost it, and warm it in the microwave. We serve the shredded chicken to the pet as a home-cooked meal or mix it into the animal's regular food. The chicken often gets a fussy patient eating again, and having the bags individually packaged is convenient and waste-free.
