In my opinion, feeding dogs chicken bones is safe if they are raw. Dogs have very strong stomach acids and bones dissolve to smaller pieces before they move into the intestines. The same applies to seemingly sharper bone fragments.

There are two types of bones that are generally considered safe for dogs. The first type is uncooked bones, though its always important to avoid poultry bones or rib bones that are too easy to break.

Raw long bones, such as humerus or femur, from large livestock animals like cows or pigs can be ideal bone chews for your dog. Theyre big enough that your dog cant swallow them whole and theyre hard enough that they cannot be broken or chewed into smaller pieces.

Raw bones are also an excellent source of minerals and vitamins. However, raw bones may contain bacteria that cause food-borne disease, so talk with your vet about how to handle the bones safely to prevent illness in you and your dog. Bone size: Opt for large, thick bones rather than small or narrow bones.

Some veterinarians say that raw meaty <b>bones</b> are a safer and more nutritious option for <b>dogs</b>, but this is not a unanimous opinion.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that between Nov. 1, 2010 and Sept. 12, 2017, it received accounts of 90 dogs who became sick after eating commercially-available smoked or baked bone treats. Fifteen of the dogs died. Raw bones are generally safer than cooked, but again, the devil is in the details.

The risks associated with feeding bones to dogs apply to bones from all kinds of animals, whether they are raw or cooked. However, the risks are highest with cooked bones, especially those from poultry because they tend to splinter. Animal hooves and antlers can be equally dangerous.

Ideal bones for dogs are round bones with bulges or lumps at either end, like leg bones. Many other types of bones are easier for dogs to break with their bite, and are more likely to cause problems. I dont bother with chicken necks or chicken wings, says Dr Josh.
