Archie has just stolen and eaten 2 raw chicken breasts fillets that were defrosting on the kitchen top will this do him any harm ?

Is it cooked chicken bones that are advised not to give dogs as the chicken bone splinters true or false?

So these bones are fine as long as they are NOT cooked, is this for all bones? or are some bones better than others? Can puppies have bones? :?

Puppies can have any RAW bones. If they are new to it, may be best to hold on to chicken wings while they chew them...gets them used to the idea of actually crunching them up, but any bones are good for them, as long as they are not cooked.

If you have any concerns, have a look at books by Ian Billinghurst (Raw meaty bones), but no harm in giving them bones as young pups, as long as you supervise them :D

Hi
This will probably sound really anal but should you wash the chicken wings first?

Have tried Ralph with them since reading Frosty's posts (on DT about raw food) but I just gave them to him straight out the pack it was only as an after thought , thought should they have been washed ??

But then he did go outside and ate them off the dirty garden !!! so i am being anal :oops:
He's been fine with them as a lunch time snackette since going to two meals a day

Lol, well if you are anal, then so am I :lol: I too give them a quick rinse under the tap before I hand them over, only for them to be dumped on the grass or somewhere equally revolting, to be eaten :roll:

:roll: :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well I dont wash mine, and they are still alive :wink:

If you feel better washing them then do, but no need really.
I gave them a knuckle bone each yesterday and the first thing Arch did was drag in in the flower beds so it was covered in soil, and then carried on eating it for the next 2 hrs :mrgreen:

I seem to be having a problem getting uncooked bones - have seen sterilised stuffed bones in supermarkets and the local pet shop only sell roasted bones (they said not allowed to sell uncooked bones due to health & safety :o )
Any thoughts on this (or where I can get an uncooked bone supply). We dont even have a local butcher due to large supermarkets springing up and taking their business.
