chico eats the chicken wings without any problems... he didn't know what to do with it when I first fed him them.... but now he grabs it off the plate as soon as I set it down..... I do set a blanket on the floor and don't allow him off it with the raw chicken...

Zippy eats raw chicken bones all the time without incident. We never eat wings but that's because they're generally over $2 a pound whereas we can get thighs or leg quarters for $1 a pound or less. I do not think, however, that raw wing bones would be any different for digestion than leg or thigh bones.

That said, make sure that you DO NOT EVER feed cooked bones! Cooked bones are dry and brittle and not easily digestible because all of the moisture has been drained from them. As they move down a dog's throat and intestinal tract they can splinter into tiny pieces as sharp as needles. Very dangerous and potentially life threatening.

I never had any tummy problems with Chico but I suppose it depends on the Chi.... I will feed a couple of days with bone.... day or so without bone.... but I also feed ZP sometimes...

Glad they enjoyed their wings! They should do just fine with them. Just use in place of a meal whenever you want to give them. :)
