My girls all get chicken feet a few times a week and a thigh or drumstick every 3 days. I have a new 9 week old puppy-what age can I give him a chicken foot? I let him lick my hands this morning after feeding the grown ups and almost lost a finger!

I know some breeders (who feed raw) give their puppies chicken necks as soon as they have teeth and can chew.

 

There are lots of YouTube videos of puppies eating raw: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=raw+feeding+puppies&oq=raw+feed&gs_l=youtube.1.4.0l10.66427.69847.0.72620.8.8.0.0.0.0.176.906.2j6.8.0...0.0...1ac.1.11.youtube.UA1lpA9i2_Q I hope this link works. If not search "raw feeding puppies". :D

 

Enjoy your little darling. :wub:

My breeder started all the pups on both kibble and raw before they went home so that the new owners could feed either. Not sure what kind of raw she offered the pups though.

I thought chicken bones were bad for dogs because they're too soft and can cause damage to their throats/intestines?

 

Cooked chicken bones are bad for dogs, raw chicken bones are great! Raw chicken bones are fantastic for cleaning teeth and firming up poop. My Carl is sensitive to chicken, so I limit his chicken intake to raw feet only. At 10 years old his teeth are fantastic (he just had his physical and the vet gave his teeth thumbs up) and his poop...bouncing and behaving!

I just shot you an email with a cc to my goddess of raw feeding mentor's email. I know she will be able to help you out!

Raw chicken bones are rubbery and break down easily with the powerful digestive juices in their gut, but cooked ones splinter and can wreak havoc.

I have a couple of friends who breed working/show dogs who feed raw right away...ground at first, and then small pieces that the puppies can "gum." I have never seen them give feet, but they give small pieces like wings and drumsticks and the puppies love it.

I have searched all the hispanic and regular markets, (no Asian markets here), where do you find turkey or duck necks, feet, etc? I can only find whole or part chk, beef, lamb, turkey, pork. The usual. No parts. 1 market has chicken feet on occasion and I buy them out.

I'm not exactly sure when she started, but Lady was already regularly eating chicken necks by the time we adopted her at 8 weeks. We've had her on there ever since. If you try it, just keep an eye on the pup the first few times he eats them. Obviously, you don't want him trying to swallow them whole. You might let him watch the adults eat them a few times to learn how.
