Default Have any one experienced this? Should I be worried?

Hi guys, my long haired chi puppy is now 13 weeks old and has been on the raw diet for two weeks. I've been giving him 80% skeletal meat, 10% bone and 10% secretive organs (5% liver). He has been really good at chewing the bones and I take away the last little bone piece just to avoid him chocking. I have been feeding him mostly chicken wings and chicken feet.

As I was wiping his mouth down today, I noticed that there are large bald patches on the sides of his mouth. It seems like the bones have been rubbing the fur off of his face as he's chewing. Should I be worried? Have any of you experienced this? Should I continue to feed him the raw diet? I'm afraid he is going to hurt his delicate skin while trying to get at the bones.

Here are some of the pics. Attachment 36874Attachment 36882Attachment 36890

I have no idea to be honest as I do not feed my babies Raw, but if it continues see a vet perhaps?

I'm not sure how it got there, he has been on the raw diet for the past two weeks and he hasn't shown any signs of allergies. I didn't notice it this morning so I think it must be from the last meal tonight. I think I will take him to the vet for a look. Most likely I won't be feeding him the chicken wings anymore. Maybe I'll just buy the pre made raw foods from the pet store from now on. I hope
some one has an answer 😞 ...my poor baby

I would say let it heal as stop her diet or cut it back a little because it could get worse and is sad to have them go through pain. Take her to the vet just to check it and that it does not advance more as soon as you can.

No, he's been very good at eating chicken wings for the past two weeks. I'm hoping that it was just caused by him being a little too enthusiastic towards his meal tonight. Nevertheless, I'll bring him to the vet tomorrow just in case.

Are dogs even meant to have chicken bones?
