Chicken Feet

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to get some feedback on feeding the dogs dried chicken feet.
Right now we give them cow ears and have given them a few bully sticks - which they love.

Chicken feet I have heard is great for joints with the glucosamine and chondroitin.

If you feed them do you remove the nails/talons?
Any issues?

Thanks

If you think dogs canít count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.

Nope, don't dry 'em either. Just thaw them out and give as a snack a couple times a week.

my dogs get chicken feet daily...from a clean poultry raising business. I don't remove anything, dogs gobble them up easily. My puppy chews on one, I then give it to the older dog to demolish after pup gives it his best shot.

Yup, fresh and with nails. I have found that they do a decent job of brushing his teeth also, heís a good chewer. @tc68 where do you get the duck feet?

Duck feet? You can usually find them at an Asian grocery store. Thatís the only place around here that has them.

I use both kinds dried from a mail-order/online store. It's good to know that they're OK to feed raw/unprocessed because theyre a lot cheaper that way here.

Heart, I used to buy it at a pet store (called Whole Pet Central). It was 49 cents each. Cheapest place anywhere that I could find. The store has just recently joined a conglomerate of mom and pop pet stores to form a large company called "Loyal Companion." I think they're only on the east coast. Anyway, now their duck feet supplier isn't...supplying, so I'm looking elsewhere. I found Chewy sells something similar...in fact it's actually on the way as I write this. Should be delivered today. $43 for 100 by Pet 'n Shape. Slightly cheaper than what I was paying before. The reviews aren't perfect. But I'll give it a shot and hope that meanwhile my store will find another supplier and keep the price point.

Oh btw, these are the dried, baked ones, not the fresh raw ones. And yes, I frequent the Asian grocery stores and I've seen the raw ones there. I may try that sometime.

Duck and chicken feet are great. I cut the nails off with a wire cutter. And I feed them frozen.
