Why cant dogs guzzle bird bones?
i've heard that it's because they splinter, but any bone, usually beef, that i give my lab he destroys into tiny little pieces besides, so is that really the reason?
They can eat bird bones if they are raw. When a chicken is cooked the bones become frozen and splinter easily.
Millions of dogs and cats (mine included) get poultry as a major section of their diet. My pets eat a raw diet of meat, meaty bones and organs and have never have any issues with bones of any sort.
Strangely enough, the same relatives that warn of the dangers of safe poultry bones are normally the same ones that recommend giving dogs those big weight bearing bones similar to beef shins, femurs and knuckles. These bones are more likely to do damage to your dog by cracking or wearing down their teeth.
Oh Bindi! Finally a voice of reason. To the rest of you I really propose you read the myths link for some well researched and referenced FACTS on the feeding of bones.
bird bones are not as 'dense' as cow bones because the bird has to fly.. well also, bird bones hold more 'air pockets' to help them fly too.
bird bones are ok if given RAW though
yes..its not only bird bones though..its any cooked bones..because they do splinter. raw bones are fine..and are actually encourages because it help clean their teeth. but any cooked bones are bad because they do splinter and can get lodged contained by a dog's throat. little bones..as in these bird bones..are bad most likely because their smaller..which is esp unpromising for bigger dogs. its just easy for them to get something lodged surrounded by their throats or start choking :/
beef bones are sort of the same
i say boil the beef bone until really soft and cool it down and after give it to your dog
i do it too bc i get nervous and verbs that he will choke and die
Raw bones are great for dogs. Avoid weight bearing bones of huge mammals, i.e. cows, pigs, they are pretty dense and can break a tooth.
My dogs get raw bones, poultry included as part of their prey model fresh diet.
Choking hazard, your dog can choke on anything, its toy, even kibble. Ever hear that *harf* sound when you're dog is eating its kibble? Guess what, it purely choked on its kibble. I've never had a choking issue with a properly fed crude bone.
They are worse at splintering more than a roast bone. It's a short time ago a different texture. The smaller pieces wouldn't be able to get stuck as much as the splintered bones do.
Your dog can either choke on the bone, return with it stuck in her/his throat and need to get it removed by the vet ( your dog not a hundred percent cough a lot) or the bone can scratch your dogs throat and damage it.
they will swollow them and then they may expand the the throat or in the intestines
it will rip your dog's guts out
cooked bones splinter contained by the dogs intestine. It is best to give raw bones such as ham hocks or large steak bones
These hollow bones splinter into very sharp pieces near are not digested by dogs and can puncture their stomachs and intestines, causing peritonitis, which is fatal if not treated.
they splinter easy and can choke or mar your dog very bad
they splinter that is the reason
they can choke on it!!
Lot's of general public feed dog bird.
Some other bones splinter as well after cooking them.
Bones are a valuable nutritional benefit for any dog.
to wicked for them
They splinter into long pieces that can tear up their insides. Beef bones are shorter and break into smaller pieces. You can safely contribute them wing tips and necks.
