I am cooking a turkey this weekend and was wondering if the turkey neck was ok for Samson if it was cooked? I hate throwing that stuff away if he could have it.

You can pick the meat off and give it to him. I am too impatient for that sort of thing, DH is good at it though. Cooked bones are a bad idea and a raw turkey neck is an unfortunate shape for inexperienced bone eaters.

My two highly recommend the liver, gizzard and heart as well. You might want to chop up the cooked gizzard though. It is delicious but tough.

Turkey necks and similar bones are a staple in the raw diet, as far as I know. It is not safe cooked, but raw it's definitely good! I feed a promarilly kibble diet, but do give RMB's (raw meaty bones) once a week. If you aren't comfortable with the RMB thing, just cook and pull the meat off, but don't give the bone cooked.

Thank you. If it grosses me out to much to give raw, I will cook it and pull the meat off.

A turkey neck is a bad shape for a dog his size. Max is about a third Samson's size, 38 pounds? Long ago, when he was fairly new at raw food I gave him a chicken neck. It went down whole and completely unchewed. It went through fine but it could have caused problems. If you choose to feed it raw you might want to hold on to it so it gets a couple chomps before it goes down the hatch.

Roxy eats turkey necks almost every day, raw of course. My supermarket gets them in and cuts them up into 5 or 6 inch long pieces. Along with heart and chicken backs, turkey necks are her favourite.dog

Max loves chicken backs too. They are just right. We don't find turkey necks at good prices here so don't get to feed them often. Never from the whole bird, they go in the stock pot to make broth for the turkey gravy. Too bad dogs!

I thought I would let you know I did brave up and gave it to him raw since I was going to be here to keep an eye on him. He had a good time tossing it around in the snow like a toy and carrying it around, but he never ate it. After a couple hours I took it away when he wasn't looking at threw it away. Yeah, he is kind of wierd.dancing

That's okay. You have bought more expensive toys that weren't as much fun. Right?

If it didn't get stinky you could have put it back into the frig for another session of toss and catch.
