|It's interesting to me that people's innitial worry is over bones, when based on my experience, the meat is the real problem. My dogs have been eating raw for two years and the only time they've come close to choking was when I cut their meatless piece to a size that didn't force them to chew enough. I will say, if a dog is acting like it's choking, 99% of the time mine bring it up on their own. I had to step in once and help, but again it was the boneless meat. I've read other people same the same thing in that their dog has had issues with the boneless cuts, not bone.
With that, always make sure you cut your boneless meat long wise, long/skinny, verses short and fatter. I always try to feed boneless pieces bigger than their head. Dogs know how to eat, it's natural for them to eat something, not chew it enough and puke it back up to chew it more. I visit quite a few forums and it's rare this is even an issue, but when it is, it's user error in the way they cut the meat. Just remember long/thin is best when it comes to boneless meals. Bone, you really have nothing to worry about. even if the dog swallowed it hole they'd be fine and it would digest in the stomach.
