Does anybody here feed their dog raw meaty bones? - April 6, 2011, 11:49 AM

PLEASE let's not turn this into an over-opinionated thread on what's a good or bad diet for your dog. The truth is that nobody agrees on that answer! But if you are considering putting your dog on a raw diet go ahead and ask for information.

I have a question for those who feed their dogs raw bones...Where Do You Get Them???

I have a 9yr old Beagle with a very sensitive stomach. We narrowed down that the best diet for her is Turkey Necks, Chicken Necks, and Chicken Backs. I finally found the chicken necks but they do not provide enough bone to clean her teeth or enough protein to sustain her weight. The best overall that we tried was regular sized Turkey Necks but since we moved here I cannot find either the T-necks or the C-backs anywhere. After loosing way too much weight by trying different alternatives we had to put her back in a very natural, organic, and grain-free kibble to build her up to a healthy weight. But now her teeth are horrible again, her breath is bad again, and she doesn't have the energy she had before. We also found a butcher that has tons of Chicken Breast bones but those are mostly smaller, softer bones and she doesn't have to do too much crunching to clean her teeth, and they are pretty bare and don't have much meat/tendons/nutrition on them so they will not sustain her weight.

Any chance that somebody can give me an idea where to go for this, or know somebody that might know?

---In case you're wondering why not other meat/bones, we already tried different ones and by process of elimination realized that most other options hurt her rather than help her. It's just because she has always had a VERY sensitive system.---

Thanks!

Deer carcasses. Mine loves to use the legs as chew toys.

...but it won't improve your dogs breath much.

+1 for Dog Gone Natural in Ashburn.

We have a 6 y.o., 115lb Rottie (see my avatar) who use to throw up his breakfasts and dinners on a consistent basis. We tried lots of food....prescription, non-prescription, low residue, etc, and nothing was really working. Then, about 1.5 years ago, someone mentioned Dog Gone Natural. We paid them a visit and found a brand of dry food called "Great Life". He loves it and he has been sick maybe once since we started him on it. I'm sure there are other options out there, but Great Life has done wonders for Jack.

DGN also carries raw diet stuff.

My beagles eat Great Life, too. They love it, but then again, they love any food.

Thats the only drawbacks to meat bones, they are usually too hard for them to break through so it doesn't clean their teeth as much. Plus it turns that my puppy can't digest meat at all so we had to move away from that option.

The problem I've found with pet stores that carry raw bones is that they are usually way too expensive and always frozen. Would be nice to get some fresh, bring it home, cut into the right sizes, then freeze them for later use.

So for the people that have been feeding raw bones for years, where do you get them? I was told that DC should have a lot more options than Woodbridge since they have more ethnic variety that'll make use of the different parts of the poultry.

I get my stuff from Whole Pet. Home - Whole Pet Central
My pups are on Aunt Jeni's raw food.

I always get the chicken thighs with the bone in and my wife just pulls them out before cleaning for the pups.

The bully sticks are super good on their teeth as well but need only a small piece to work on as it takes forever to get through it.

Deer antlers are liked as well.

THIS!!!

We also started using deer antlers with Jack and he LOVES THEM! No splintering and contains good marrow.

And the antlers have produced great results with keeping his teeth clean!!
