I have a few questions about feeding rabbit pieces. First, I have no idea as to the percentage of bone in rabbit parts or whole rabbit. Anyone know? The rabbit came with liver, kidneys and heart. I'm assuming I can give these to my dogs?

Since my dogs have never had it before, do I need to introduce the meat in small amounts? They eat beef, pork, turkey, chicken, and fish like there is no tommorow...

The guide above has bone percentages for different animals, including rabbit.

Saya has had rabbit pieces gotten it from the butcher all gutted and dressed..

Saya enjoyed it. She is 20lbs she got a thigh and some boneless with it for a days meal..

Could give some of the meat with some meals or half the bone in part of the rabbit to get the dog used to it?

I'm not sure I just gave it to Saya since she has a iron gut not all dogs do though. If it has bone I'd think it'd help keep poop firm.

Yeah, Saya, I think that's a good idea. I'm thinking my girls should be alright with it, but I'd hate to make them sick. The bone content in rabbits seems to be a little lower than chicken, which is why I'm trying it since my three dogs are between 8 and 16 lbs.

They're having beef ribs with some side meat tonight, so I think I'll slip in some rabbit with that.

If the poop looks good, hopefully they'll be ready for a rabbit meal.

Thanks!
