Do you feed chicken bones? Do those get stuck too? In your other thread you were talking about beef and pork neck bones - I don't give those to my dogs. They get rib bones, knuckle bones, and lot of chicken bones. Chicken bones are hollow, lightweight, and soft. I tested it by biting down on a raw chicken thigh bone, it was like biting down on a cracker - that is how soft they are.
In order for the metabolism to use calcium, it needs to be balanced with the correct ration of phosphorus and a boat-load of other minor minerals. The beauty of feeding bone is that it comes pre-packaged with the exact ratios of the all the nutrients and minerals needed to properly utilize the calcium in the body. Supplementing with only Calcium to replace bones in a raw diet is missing out on proper nutrition. So if your dog has issues with eating bones, try feeding the raw food ground up, as suggested.
