To be safe, when using poultry, we recommend raw necks and wings for small to medium dogs and cats. Beef knucklebones are difficult for an animal to get in trouble with and they can provide nutritional benefits, healthier teeth and gums, great exercise and relieve boredom. (Cooked bones should only be fed under close supervision because they can splinter into sharp fragments, may lodge in and around teeth and be too easily consumed in excess.)
When first introducing bones, just make sure your pet does not over-consume since this can cause constipation. To begin, you may wish to offer the bone two or three times a day for short intervals only. After a while, assuming you are converting to a more healthful all-around diet, your pet will regulate its bone consumption. Supervision is always recommended.
