Pup's Diet - Bones??

Recommended Posts

Hey, Just a quick question.

 

Pups age = 8 weeks, current/starting diet is raw meet and dams milk

 

I am carrying on with raw minced meats, brown bread, quail eggs and veg scraps. (no complete food)

 

When do I start giving bones?

 

Do I mince chicken wings and whole quail to start with or should I feed them whole??

 

Cheers

Just make sure they're RAW bones...

 

NEVER give a dog cooked bones as that's when they splinter and cause problems ;)

Just to add they only splinter when they are baked in the oven ... Boiled is fine ........

out of interest is there any advantage to boiling them rather than feeding them raw,does it soften them further, obviously iv never boiled them hence the question cheers

I'm always reading and learning on this forum, I didn't realise boiled bones were ok and wouldn't splinter...

 

My whippet always gets them raw anyways :)

 

Cheers Socks ;)

so why boil them lol

because if you haven't the freezer space to freeze them for 2 weeks to kill tape worm then boiling them will kill the tape worm cyst
