The only thing I could see that may be a problem is the sodium in it. Im not an expert on it though so Id wait til someone else comes along.

I agree with Hedgieonboard, canned chicken is pretty salty, but I'm really no expert either. :)

If you want to offer him chicken, an easy alternative to canned chicken is to buy a bag of frozen chicken breasts, and just boil one breast at a time to keep in your fridge for treats.

how long does a boiled chicken breast last in the fridge ?...also should chicken only be a treat? not with every meal?..if not how often should he get chicken? ..this is the only meat i tried to give him yet..

I'm not exactly sure on the length of time it can be kept in the fridge, but you can also take most of it and put it back in the freezer, it'll stay good for a long time in there. I think that's what I did, rather than keeping it in the fridge (sorry for the confusion there, that was my fault!).
I didn't give it to Lily every night, it was usually every few nights, I gave her a small chunk about as big around as a penny, cut up into small pieces.
