Dogs can handle small chicken bones with no problem. Most chickens these days are slaughtered when the bones are still soft and growing, and the dog's digestive acids softens them further, so there's no risk of sharp pieces damaging the gut.
I'd beware of feeding bones from fully mature poultry, though. They are hollow inside, and have really sharp edges when chewed up. Back when I was growing up, we were told never EVER feed your dog chicken bones, and there was a damn good reason for that. Chickens were older when slaughtered back then.
That's right sunsilver; some of the cheaper brands of chicken quarters I found at Walmart had hugh thick bones and my then older girl could not chew them. She was almost 14 at that time so I changed her to ground K9 Kravings of course with bones already ground up in the different formulas and she did great with that. So watch for any unchewed undigested bones also. Good luck Nan
So it's been around 7 weeks since I put both my girls on the raw diet and it has been the best decision I ever made. It's like they're new dogs. Both of them suffered from chronic skin infections and I had tried every treatment out there. Antibiotics, anti fungal, anti allergies and nothing worked. 7 weeks on the raw diet and their skin is completely clear. No black spots and areas on their underbelly it is completely clear. Their coat is soft and shiny. The older female doesnt drink excessive water anymore. She usually just has water at night now. The younger one's ear infection is also 85% gone. The older dog also has a lot of energy now. I would recommend the raw diet to EVERYONE. Your dogs will thank you for it. God is great
So glad you have found some solutions. Best of luck for future success. Nan
