Good bones to feed?
 
I've been feeding chicken quarters for the past week and a half so now I'm gonna switch to ground hamburger meat and I'm wondering what bones to feed with this besides ribs? I was thinking pigs feet? But again I'm not sure, is ox tail ok?? I think I read that they were too hard could shatter teeth, but I could be getting that confused with something else? Thanks for the advise!

Any chicken parts with bone (neck, back, leg, thigh), turkey necks, rabbit, beef necks and ribs, lamb necks and breast, pork ribs and necks.

You want to avoid the weight bearing bones (like legs) for large animals (like cows) if your dog is an aggressive chewer.

Ox tails are like bubble gum to my dogs! Chew chew chew chew chew!!

Pretty rare that I get ox tail since it is crazy expensive, but my dogs love them.

I was concerned about the pork and beef necks cause they are cut and didn't want her swallowing any small pieces. Couldn't they cause a blockage if they are too big or is the neck soft enough for the stomach to still do its job ?? I wasnt sure about pigs feets cause they are weight bearing??

Pigs feet are also VERY fatty. I would be more worried about that.

Think of the bones in our feet. They aren't really weight bearing and they aren't nearly as tough as our leg bones. Same with pig and cow.

My gang eat pork neck bones alot. Even my Chinese Cresteds can eat them completely (takes them awhile but they can). So far nothing has gotten stuck and if they ingest a piece that can't pass through they urp it back up.
