Yeah my dog gets horrible diarrhea from any chicken or peanut butter at all. He loves both and will eat them but then invariably at 4am wakes me with his nose on the bed with a frantic look in his eyes and lots of pacing to the door.
If I sleep through it, it's amazing how much pure liquid disgusting smelly diarrhea can come out of one dog in a few hours. I go through an entire roll of paper towels, or two, trying to clean up the results of sleeping one hour.
I get frankly hostile and confrontational now when I tell people in public not to feed him treats and they say I'm cruel and it's gone and not to be so controlling. I say fine you're staying over and caring for him then, and paying all medicine and bet and cleanup bills and doing ALL the cleaning!!!
I have to take him to the dog park and stay there all day. Impossible to pick up.
Plus then he's nauseous and drooling with gas and stomach pain for days or weeks afterwards and won't eat anything unless I literally force feed him and give him antinausea meds and antacids around the clock.
From a few bites of chicken or chicken flavored food or treats. Or peanut butter flavored chews or treats.
And chicken is in EVERY dog food, treat, bone, chew, etc.
The pet store nutrition specialist told me it's ridiculous because chicken allergies are increasingly common in dogs now because most dog foods put crap chicken processed parts in the foods to save costs.
Recent studies have shown that raw dog and cat foods have high levels of bacterias and contaminants that make people, dogs, other pets and children sick if exposed to them, so they're not really safe to feed dogs or leave out in households where other pets and people, especially kids can be around them, or the dogs after eating them.
