I do feed raw chicken bones but only supervised and only ever necks which I check to make sure they are not to big and can't be swallowed without crunching first.
If a smaller dog swallowed a whole chicken neck without crunching it it could get lodged in their throat if it's too big.
After receiving all of this information and all of these opinions, I am going to try and feed my little dog RAW chicken necks. I do believe that raw diets are the way to go but unfortunately and surprisingly my cats are not interested!? In the past, I tried raw meat and she became ill, but I will try again as it is now several years later. As she is with problems relating to her digestion, perhaps I will start off with only 1 piece. Is it safe to do this, or preferable/safer to give the neck in one piece?
Also, what is your opinion on giving a piece of raw chicken liver? And do I need to rinse the blood off or is the blood that surrounds the chicken livers in the package safe? Thanks.
