I'm feeding raw meaty bones a few times a week and today is the third time I've given them to the dogs. Ihave been holding Charlie's chicken wing to encourage him to chew and then turning loose when it'too small to hold. Well today he swallowed that piece whole and then started to scream. Very unnerving but then he threw it up and then he crunched it up more carefully before swallowing it again. I hope that means he's learning to eat more carefully. I don't think I will ever go to a completely raw diet but I'm convinced that at least what I am doing will help their teeth.
