Default Examples of Meaty Bones (with pictures) ....

This is a common question, so thought I'd make a post of meaty bones that I like for chi's for dental and recreational use ....

Other raw feeders - feel free to add to this thread with examples of what you use as meaty bones.

I use these in place of a meal in most cases.

Chicken feet (found at asian grocery stores). Cheap and a great "toy" that most chi's love. Totally edible.



Chicken necks. I like to remove the skin as its so thick and fatty. Again, I do not let Brody eat an entire chicken neck, too much bone. I let him gnaw on it for awhile, then take it away and throw in the freezer for another day. When it gets too small and could be a choking hazard, I throw it out.



Chicken wings. I usually separate these into 3 sections. The drumstick, the middle section and the wing tips. I keep the wing tips in a baggy in the freezer and give out in case of a loose stool. Works great. The drumstick and middle section are a meal and will be completely consumed.



Ribs. Obviously separate these. Great for teeth cleaning. Take away once it dries out and its stripped of meat.



Short Ribs. Not for gulpers. But fine for dogs that are careful eaters. One of Brody's favorites. He does not eat all this bone. Just eats the meat off and then gnaws on the bone for a couple of hours. I don't feed all the meat at one time, too much. I slice off the big chunk of meat and save that for another meal and just feed the bone with a thinner covering of meat.



Pork necks - try to avoid the ones that area really sawed up. Avoid bones that have been sawed like t-bones or pork chop bones.



This is not a complete list! But may help someone new to raw get started on figuring out what meaty bones are good for our dogs.

Thanks for posting that! It will help me the next time I'm in the grocery store, especially since I have never bought any meat for myself. I'm clueless! Those chicken necks are huge compared to the ones we get. I wonder if the ones I buy are cut in half already or if they're from small chickens. Odie has one for a meal no prob with normal poop after.

Great post. I love that Brody is so delicate with his food, mine eat like a swarm of locusts! Half a chicken neck is gone in minutes, ditto ribs, they don't daintily nibble the meat off, it is just crunch, crunch, crunch, gone! The girls even gobble down organs as if they are yummy (still can't persuade Harley that they are even edible...) they are such a joy to feed.
They had turkey feet the other day, went down well but I did trim the claws off first as they were big and sharp. (From a free-range turkey, not a farmed one, don't know if that would have made a difference.)

I"m glad you pointed that out Stella! That's a perfect example of why you have to know your dogs. Each dog is different. What works for one might not work for another. Some dogs are gulpers and it wouldn't be safe to give them a chicken foot as they'd just snarf it down and possibly choke. Some dogs just nibble and some gnaw. It's important to feed BIG if you have a greedy gus so they can't just inhale the food.

Awww turkey feet sound great! Brody would love one of those!

Just bought chicken necks and beef ribs. The sweet sound of crunching necks makes me happy and the pups too. I feed them raw once in a while, but never with bones. Kai won't stay still for teeth brushing (she smacks her head back and forth like a crocodile), she hates it and her teeth just keep getting more plaque. Hopefully 2x a week will keep her teeth clean or should I give them More?

Two times a week should do a good job. Just keep an eye on them.
