Bones
 
We are switching Quincy to a raw diet but I'm really confused about feeding bones. Are there any bones I should not feed him? Thank you

Weight bearing bones from most mammals are too dense to be considered part of the diet. They can be given as a recreational chew. Unless the animal is very young, the bones are too hard to chew and digest easily in a meal. I seldom give turkey bones to my dogs, though I know others that feed them.

Are pork femur bones okay?

I only give pork neck bones, and those can be hard to digest too. If a dog is just learning to eat raw, I'd stay with chicken(all parts), duck or turkey necks for the rmb's.
