I really have mixed feelings on this. I really fear giving him raw chicken bones for fear of choking. I know you read about dogs getting all kinds of stuff stuck in there stomach/gut, and costing alot ot fix. I have changed his diet. I looked into premium dog foods which are quite expensive, and found it cheaper to buy chicken. I now buy chicken leg quarters, and cook then shredd. He gets one meal dog food, and one meal of this...I noted it was making him detox big time at first...alot of mucus, and diareaha...I have since started grinding a carrot, and mixing it with the meat. that seems to tame down the runs.
