    Default A question for raw feeders

    So I'm trying raw feeding with Roscoe and I think I may be worrying about nothing- but I have a question.

    I gave him chicken leg to start with- just to see if he'd know what to do with it. Well he ate it just fine, but he also ate the bone.
    Is that okay? Should I have taken the bone out?


    Ohh I'm such a newbie.

    Hi there!!!

    you need not to worry!!! Bone is good!!! As long as it is raw. Did you give Roscoe a leg or a chicken leg quarter?? I will pm you some websites to check out. @savemejeebus knows of a raw forum you can check out. Welcome to the world of raw!!! @GatorRay and @karenben are also raw feeders.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    Yes keep the bone in! Chicken bones and pork bones (frozen 3+ weeks with pork) are softer and much easier to digest for a RAW starter. You have nothing to worry about!


    Cheers,

    Oh good! Thank you for answering so fast! I was worried the bone would really hurt him. He just ate it so fast I didn't even realize it was all gone. And I'd love to see those links! I feel like I can't learn enough about this.
    And it was just a leg, not a leg quarter.

    @Chad M Lane , so pork with bone needs to be frozen for three weeks before he can have it?

    raw bones are fine. you are doing it right! never a cooked bone to a dog.

    raw is a wonderful way to go, most people can't due to money, but it is wonderful. My Bella can't due to bone, it is too much for her condition.

    Raw pork can and does have species of round worm, so I frezze all my pork for at least 3 weeks before feeding it to the dogs, I feed a fair amount of pork as well, I try to get slightly learner cuts, as it's cheaper than beef, and a bit more digestible. Even with that I do feed a good amount of beef. I also buy whole Lambs so the bulk of my red meats is Lamb, and still looking for a good local source of Bison and Elk. Next year I plan on going Deer, and Wild Boar hunting just for the dogs besides that I love Wild Boar myself. haha


    Cheers,

    Bone is fine. As stated so long as it is Raw ... Never cooked.
    Meat alone with not enough bone will also cause diarrhea.
    Its amazing how quickly they go through bone isn't it? Mr.Bruno goes through it so fast and in such big chunks that I have to grind all his meat and veggies,and freeze them into patties.
    I defrost 2 a day for him.

    @kayrahbear - Can't remember if I sent you the links, but will do (again?). Try giving chicken quarters instead of just the leg to help him slow down and chew. It's always best to give bigger chunks of meat to those who tend to swallow whole.

    @jortiz9758 Can you recommend a good meat grinder? I just started Belly on raw and would like to grind it. Most of them look pretty flimsy.

    I forget what brand mine is, but I got it at a Bass Pro Shops. It's has 3/4 HP. It'll grind softer bones like chicken, rabbit, duck but not beef, most turkey, etc.

    If you research online for a good BARF rawfeeding grinder, you'll find a couple of brands that most people will recommend. Unfortunately, us in this country have not as much selection as you guys do down there.

    Thanks @savemejeebus ! Reading this thread and all the others, I've already found out I started them wrong... I went straight for the beef
