Re: Raw Diet...What Kind of Meat and How Much?
the thing with raw is learn to walk before you learn to run,i say this as a lot of dog owners make the mistake of rushing the dog which usually leads to runs and then they blame the raw and stop feeding it,stick to 1 protien and go slow remember it can take months of raw to sort out health problems if there are any,good luck im sure you will both enjoy this way of feeding,karen
To answer your question, no RAW chicken bones are soft and pliable and perfectly fine for a dog to eat, especially after their stomach acids adjust to raw food. COOKED bones however should never be given to dogs.

Less poop, less gas, more energy, clear skin, shiny coats, no bulldog breath, etc.
Price wise, yes, at the beginning it is more expensive. Once you wrap your head around it, do your research, and make connections; either w. local butchers, hunters, or co-ops, then it is the same price if not cheaper than kibble. It depends on if the benefits outweighs the effort it takes for you, and if your dog is uncomfortable on its current diet.
