The following are some important notes on bones that will help you properly handle and provide them as supplements for your pet's raw pet food diet.

 

  • Avoid poultry leg bones (the drumstick). They are long, hollow and brittle and some pets won't chew them up properly. They can splinter and not be digested properly.
  • Choose bones that are larger than your pets mouth capacity or 1 to 1 1/2 times the width and girth of the mouth.
  • Supervise you pet while chewing on bones but don't hover or they will try to "wolf" the bone down.
  • Dont panic if your pet regurgitates a bone. It may be too big or too small.
  • Teach your pet to eat their bones slowly by initially holding them while they chew.
  • Feed bones opposite or after the heaviest exercise period.
  • For puppies, kittens, seniors or beginners choose softer more digestible bones like backs and necks.
  • Bones can be messy. Feed them to your pet outdoors, if possible, or on a washable mat.
  • If you have more than one pet feed them the bones separately to avoid squabbles.
  • Exercise common sense and proper hygiene when handling raw bones.
