"Feed meats with normal fat content as dogs and cats require the raw fat for healthy skin.
* Do not feed fat by itself as this could potentially lead to pancreatitis.
* Do not feed fat that has been cooked as a dog or cat cannot digest cooked fat.
* Cooked fat can also potentially lead to a problem such as pancreatitis. Many pets have been known to get pancreatitis after their owners have fed them the cooked skin of the chicken they were eating. Of course, the owner thought they were giving the dog or cat a nice treat or snack, but it can cause health problems."
