Many people are hesitant to feed raw chicken or turkey bones to your dogs. I was for a long time also. I have read enough now to know that if the chicken and turkey bones are raw (NOT COOKED AT ALL) they are totally safe for your dogs. I have been feeding the drumstick, neck and wings from the turkey and chicken now for over a few years and my dogs are fine. The stomach acid of our dogs is much more acid and it will digest the raw bones if the dog is able to crunch them. Femur leg bones and marrow bones are not good for they are too hard and can crack a tooth which can be very costly with the orthodontist bill. Your dog needs bones that they can actually grind with their teeth for that is also a great cleaning action on the teeth.
Granted my dogs are Golden Retrievers and a larger breed but you can feed the smaller dog these bones in smaller amounts. This Thanksgiving I bought them their own turkey and fed them everything over a period of days. Yes, that includes the back and neck. They enjoyed it and at the holidays you can find great deals on whole turkeys.
Give your dogs a treat for Christmas when turkey's are still a great price.
