Duck is safe for dogs

Duck meat is safe for your dog unless it is allergic to it. It is a good source of protein and iron. It is also found in commercial dog foods and can be a good option if your dog is allergic to other more common protein sources. Duck skin is high in fat and should be avoided. Do not feed your dog cooked duck bones. Raw neck bones may be safe depending on the size. Raw duck is safe although it may contain bacteria that can make your dog sick. If cooking duck, serve it plain and avoid adding any oil or butter.
