|I am very new to the raw diet and have been feeding my dogs raw for about 2 weeks now. I have done hours upon hours, days upon days of research and there is so much conflicting information regarding what you can and shouldn't feed them. I have found a local distributor who provides me with raw chicken and bone, ground as well as tripe which is also ground and organ. Because all of this food have been grounded up my dogs (large breeds) gulp it up in seconds. I would like to add variety and provide them meaty bones which take a long time for them to gnaw at and chew, to give them a work out. I bought whole chicken, cut it up into 4 peices and gave to my dogs. They gulp it down, hardly any chewing. I then bought lamb shanks with a good meat to bone ratio. They crunch right through the bone which is my concern. This bone is very different from that of a chicken. I took the lamb shank away and picked up the peices of bone they broke, they were hard and pointy and sharp. I heard any raw bone is okay for dogs to eat provided they are not weight bearing. Am I just being paranoid or should I have let them finish their meal?
Many thanks, I am so confused when it comes to bones,I just want to make sure my dogs will be okay.
