Chicken Bones Treat Is Not Recommended

There are some pet owners out there that give there dogs chicken bones as treats after the pet owners are done eating their fried chicken meals. But I personally do not recommend giving chicken bones as dog treats because if you will notice how chicken bones breaks into very sharp pieces that could hurt your dogs internally and you may have no way of knowing right away because there are no physical exterior signs at first. But can you imagine how sharp chicken bones pieces can possibly be harmful to your dogs interior body organs like the intestine and stomach? Dogs may be able to break and chew chicken bones into pieces but it does not mean that the bones turns soft or fully digest when the bones goes down to their body. There are several different dog treats and biscuits out there that works safer for your dogs like rawhides and pig ears. It is best for your dogs sake not to take chances on your dogs well-being, giving chicken bones as treat might not be the safest for your dogs health. Sometimes, dogs can getaway with eating chicken bones and not hurt inside, but its better safe than sorry. It is best to give our dogs safe foods and treats that they can enjoy, as well as keep them safe and healthy.

Note: If you are concern about your dog's health and well-being, have you ever thought about what are the ingredients included in your dog's food and where they come from, you might also want to consider cooking your own dog foods using organic fruits and vegetables that are healthy for them. You have to do some research which fruit, and which vegetable can be harmful to the dogs so that you don't include them in your cooking recipe.

I agree, cooked chicken bones should never be given to pets. They can splinter and puncture their intestines and cause all kinds of problems, and possibly death. It's just not worth the risk. Thanks for posting about this.

Cooked chicken bones are really bad, but a raw chicken wing can be good for the teeth of small dogs and cats (for shewing, not for swallowing).
Also be aware that corn cobs are the perfect size for getting stck in a dog's inestine.

I've heard of dogs choking on chicken bones. I don't know what the chances of this are, but it's not worth the risk.
