Rather get your dog a large beef bone, a joint bit is full of chewy stuff and cartliage, and they don't snap into nasty bits, although you should be carefull with any bones. My rottie breaks any bone in just a minute, and she's so eager to eat it all, I have to be carefull she doesn't swallow any nasty bits. So, yes, bones are good for fun and cleaning teeth, but not all bones, and not too much of it.

    Hi, new here but just wanted to say I beleive this info is actually wrong (not wanting to step on toes either). You should never feed your weight bearing or knuckle bones, any weight bearing bones of large animals are just a tooth wreck waiting to happen - they wear down the teeth or crack them so they can break later. Chicken bones are ok as long as they are feed RAW (Never feed any cooked bones and they can splinter and lodge in the intestine/Stomach) Raw chicken bones are pliable enough that they will not be able to splinter or harm your dog.

    This is what ive hard and ive never had any trouble feeding chicken necks or wings to dogs.

    DO NOT FEED COOKED CHICKEN BONES as this can cause splintering in the bone when chewed and cause a lot of issues to your dog.

    I don't have the guts to give my dogs wings, legs or whole carceses- (I worry about the rib cage bones).
    Just necks & wing tips...and when I dice up breast, they get the offcuts.

    I feed Leo raw based on the prey model diet and he sometimes will get 1/2 a whole chicken (All meat/ribs and all) and eats all without a problem. His loves his chicken legs and wings too and usually starts his breakfast off with one

    And I have always given chicken wings to our family dogs in the past without any problems.

    I used to give Leo big nuckle bones, despite being warned. Untill i heard a couple of weeks ago about one of my dads friends staffys loosing most of his canine tooth after it cracked from chewing a big nuckle bone. And then my dad also told me the rottie we owned when i was younger also did the same thing many years back, so no more knuckle bones for Leo!

    Yes..I have to admitt...my mums dog totally wore his teeth down big time by chewing on the beef bones!...He basically just had nothing but gums by the time he was 10!

    I have heard pork bones are better if you want to give larger bones, as they are less dense then beef/lamb bones but dont know how true that actually is

    Leo will still get a lamb neck sometimes but I generally take them off him once he has stripped the meat off and had a good chew, just in case he breaks his teeth, even though it isnt a weight bearing bone. I just think better safe than sorry

    Actually, this is not wrong And it's definetelly not toothwrecking Dog is a carnivore, it's teeth are designed to tear meet and crack bones. Big bones are good for cleaning teeth and gums. Of course, if you give them from time to time, not every day. Should I mention that my last dog turned 14 and had all teeth in place, no tartar? I fed her raw food and she chewed big bones. In fact, I have never met a dog in my whole life who had cracked it's tooth on a big bone, but I have heard and seen amy dogs that even had to have surgery because they were fed chicken/or small bones. Chicken bones (poultry in general, rabbit, venison) are NOT good raw or cooked. Unless they are minced and mixed with raw food. And this is not coming from me, but from veterinarians and nutricionists.

    Well we each have our own opinions hey Im sticking by mine

    When it comes to veterinarians and raw foods, their formal education has
    short-changed them immensely. Just ask your own vet how much
    nutritional training he/she received in college. The average seems to
    be about 8 hours to two weeks (in 4 years of post-grad education). The
    training they do receive is typically administered by pet food
    nutritionists from companies like Hill's SD. So also ask your vet who
    taught the class and what they learned in there. Also, next time you
    visit a vet, just take a look around the office. What sort of products
    do you see? What is being promoted? What corporations are basically
    sponsoring this vet?

    Personally I have never seen or heard of an actual case of a dog needing to have surgery because they were fed chicken/or small bones but I have seen a dog recently as I menioned with a completly cracked canine tooth, so i stand by my own convictions

    Thats not to say i dont respect your beliefs, in actual fact reading through your post i generally whole heartedly agree with your responses, unfortunately just not in this circumstance.
