How many raw bones?

I've been giving my 4 month old raw femur bones and I was wondering how many I should give him a week? I buy some that are only one or 2 inches long and some are probably 4 or 5.

Techiniquely you can give 1 to 4 a week depending on the dog and if he/she gets the runs.

I do 1 femur bone (4") long a week b/c I give chicken bone to my dogs daily.

Are you doing the RAW Diet on your puppy?
Or
Are you doing a RAW / kibble diet?

Right now I just feed him dry kibble, diamond large breed puppy. I just started giving him raw bones as a treat to chew on and keep him busy. I've thought about feeding him a raw diet but there's soo much different information out there, I'm not sure what's really right. I also heard it was a lot more expensive?

im curious Deb, how do you prepare your chicken bones? im way to cautious about giving Red ANY bones (beisdes real Cow bones) bkuz i dont want to them to splinter in his esoph. im not too sure what i mean by prepare but i say this bkuz i thought it was terrible to give your dog chicken bones... im not questioning your actions bkuz i know you know alot more than me but your the first person that has told me they feed their dogs chicken bones... i could understand if they were crumbled down into harmless pieces.

Actually, giving your dog raw chicken bones is not as dangerous as you might think. When they're cooked, they are much softer, and that's when they're prone to splintering and puncturing the esophagus, intestines, or stomach. I don't feed RAW, and that's not really my area, but I do know this much from studying and reading all of Deb's guidance on RAW feeding. Sorry I'm not of more help to you in this department, but I hope I've helped you out somewhat.

Fortyfootelf = TheLadyPit is correct on the bones. The RAW chicken bone is not going to splinter, now if you cook it (boil, fry, bake) you have now hardened the bone so in that care b/c it has been cooked it how can easier way for splinter breaks then RAW due to it being a thinner bone / The HOLE meaning is: it is no longer plyable (softer)
BEEF bone or other more Mammal bone types really do not splinter but will have much more sharper breaks like RIBS, Flangies, Metacarpals. But bigger bones like spine, femurs, tibas, radias all are a stronger thicker bone so will not do that kind of damage.

Make sense?

It still cleans there teeth in a daily use.
It also has nutrition in its bones marrow.
It is also calcium from the bone.

What other types of bones can I give him just any large ones from the grocery store? What about pork bones? Are bones that have a lot of meat on them okay? I know people feed their dogs raw diets but I get worried if he doesn't finish all the meat at one time can they get sick from the same bacteria we do if it gets left out?

I bought some turkey legs and turkey wings from Ingles, they were pretty cheap but I gave Max a leg and he didn't know what to do with it. lol I watched him for a long time trying to pull the meat off of the bone and you can hear him crunching on the bone but he had a hard time eating it. I got up and walked in the house to wash my hands from handleing it and saw out the kitchen window he had got up to go bury it. I noticed where some of the ground was freshly dug so I got the leg and brought it in the house to wash it off and placed it in the fridge, and yesterday I gave it back to him and he finished it finally.

My question is how long can the meat sit outside before it does spoil? Could we give them chicken livers also? Oh I have a friend who has some allgator meat can they eat it too? Was thinking about asking if i could have some of his meat since he told us he didn't like it and he was going to give it too his dogs...

How concerned are you guys about bones and dulling/flattening teeth? I used to feed more marrow bones and beef rib bones but Ruby's teeth arre now as flat as can be and shorter (tho not nubs) with the dark center (root?) visible. So for the last marrow bone I got, I just scraped out the marrow and I no longer give beef femurs or beef rib bones... But darn that her teeth got so flat already!

how many times a day did you give bones to your dog on a daily basis?
In all my years of feeding RAW w/ bone I dont have that problem b/c my main bone in my dogs diet is chicken with a RAW FEMUR bone once a week
