Thanks everyone!

Skycat- I feed already complete raw meals so they have bone and ofa added to it as well as the meat :)

That's good, but what is a complete raw meal? Is everything all minced up together, bone and all? If this is the case, being super picky again, the dog is just swallowing mush all the time and doesn't get the physical and mental satisfaction of chewing on carcases, which also keep the teeth tartar free. Might be an idea to add a chicken carcase to the dog's daily feed.

Thanks for your input it's always appreciated :)

Yes it's minced together but he does get some 1 neck in there too but your right the carcass may be good to add too for him to chew. Are you talking about a whole chicken carcass or will any meat on bone be ok? 

Thank you

You can buy stripped chicken carcases from pet food suppliers. These are carcases where the breast and legs are taken off for human consumption, so what's left is bone with shreds of meat. I get mine from my local butcher who buys boxes of these to sell to the restaurant trade for making soups and stocks, but with only one dog it probably wouldn't be practical for you to do this. If you have a traditional butcher near you it might be worth asking if you can buy carcases from them, but in smaller quantities. Lamb ribs are a great bone as well, but stay away from weight bearing bones from larger animals such as lamb, beef etc. Too much risk of breaking a tooth.
