What do you all do about fish bones? The kind that can get stuck in the throat, amongst other places.

As with any bones, they should be surrounded by meat and in a cut that is sized properly to promote good chewing habits.

I've fed whole salmon heads, salmon carcasses (spine/ribs with a thin layer of meat over top), and whole sardines, all without any problems with the bones.
