|I'd probably want to feed bone daily until the gut was fine with the new diet then drop the amount of bone fed by changing one bony to one meaty meal per week and aim to feed 1-2 bony meals a week in the end. If the dog happens to need 2-3 or 3-4 bony meals then that is what you need to do though.
Most kibble is really high in calcium on its own already. If you have fed your dog a bony meal already you know how addictive bone feeding can be so trying to feed bony meals less often is a pretty good idea. Dogs adore bones and we love watching them enjoy them and seeing the clean teeth. I would love to give my dogs bones daily but it is worth it to feed boring 5 seconds and gone boneless meals every other day and get wonderful long chews on the other days.
Course it depends on the bony meat you are offering. Whole fish is low in bone content. Using something like one chicken foot for part of the bony meal is low bone content for a medium sized dog. The chicken quarters you find maybe be smaller or less bony than the chicken quarters I find for instance.
