Has anyone here personally had any issues feeding raw bones?
I'm just curious. I've always been of the opinion that there are some inherent risks in feeding raw bones, such as perforated intestines, impactions, cracked teeth etc.
Some people on a raw feeding group I belong to are denying that it's even a remote possibility. It's not enough to change me from feeding raw, but are my concerns unrealistic and unfounded? Am I buying into the conventional vet conspiracy?
My dog has painfully passed a large piece of chicken drum stick in the past, so I don't think they are always digested and that there is the potential for problems if the don't crunch them up enough.
It made me worry enough that I feed a commercially prepared raw diet and supplement with things like turkey necks and chicken backs that have softer bones to chew and are smaller and easier to pass.
Am I being untruthful telling someone who's new to raw and asking if there are risks that there are? Raw doesn't seem to be studied at all, so finding any credible information is difficult.
So I'm just wondering if anyone has actually had any problems, or if I'm just scared of the boogeyman?
