Schmidt, M., Unterer, S., Suchodolski, J. S., Honneffer, J. B., Guard, B. C., Lidbury, J. A., Steiner, J. M., Fritz, J., & Kölle, P. (2018). The fecal microbiome and metabolome differs between dogs fed Bones and Raw Food (BARF) diets and dogs fed commercial diets. PLOS ONE, 13(8), e0201279. The bone meal available at home and garden stores should never be mixed into dog food as it’s not safe for animal consumption. This sort of meal resembles white flour in texture and is a form of slow-release phosphorus. However, because manufacturers often add fertilizers and chemical stabilizers to gardener’s bone meal, it can be poisonous for dogs and is listed as “mild to moderately” toxic by the Pet Poison Helpline. Bone Meal for Dogs: The truth is, most myths regarding the risks posed by feeding bones are only true of feeding cooked bones. Feeding raw bones, assuming they are the appropriate size and type for your dog–more on that later–is typically very safe. Benefits of Raw Bones for Dogs The splinters that break off cooked bones can be very dangerous. They tend to be sharp and can easily cause damage to the dog's mouth and throat and may even perforate the intestines. Raw bones, on the other hand, tend not to splinter. The rounded chunks that may break off are less likely to get caught in the esophagus. The high acidity of the dog’s stomach, which ranges between 1.08 and 2.05, easily breaks down these pieces of soft bone before they pass into the intestines.

Dogs Eat Cooked Ground Up Chicken Bones? – Best Dog Answers Can Dogs Eat Cooked Ground Up Chicken Bones? – Best Dog Answers

The standard advice from vets who advocate kibble/tinned foods is to brush pets’ teeth. Yet canine tooth decay is less common amongst populations with routine access to whole bones, i.e. wolves and dogs fed a good raw diet—a fact worth considering. When it comes to bones for dogs, there is a lot of debate about whether or not pressure cooked bones are okay. Pressure cooking is a common cooking method used in many households and can be done in a variety of ways, from using a pressure cooker on the stovetop to using an Instant Pot. While pressure cooking can break down bones, some people warn that the high heat may also cause them to become brittle and dangerous for dogs to eat. Calcium is the second most abundant nutrient found in bones. As any aging woman knows, this mineral is essential for bone health. Calcium also plays a vital role in heart health, muscle function, and nerve function. In addition, there is growing evidence that optimal calcium intake may even play a role in protecting against cancer.

Gut Health– bone tissue and fibers aid digestion and prevent loose stools by binding to food in the digestive tract. I often add additional bone to the meal when a dog has loose stool. Dogs have evolved to have low pH levels naturally. Most processed dog food and kibble are believed to upset this perfect balance and alkalise the system meaning that the dog’s digestive system is not as well equipped to cope with bone.

As a dog owner, you’ll know, depending on the dog, this could be anything and everything, yet we couldn’t eliminate all of these things from a dog’s environment ‘in case’ he chokes. If you are giving complete meals where muscle meat, offal and ground bone is added for you, then your dog will be getting the calcium they need. If the percentage is not clear on the product label then ask the manufacturer, as it should be between 10-12 % ground bone. The raw bone is finely ground so it is unlikely you will notice it when dishing up and your dog will have no trouble digesting it. Look for meaty bones (instead of those where all the meat has been removed by hand or machine). Generally considered safer to feed as the tenacious meat and connective tissue serve to cushion the tooth against the more brittle bony surface, reducing dental damage. Some dog owners are of the opinion that homemade dog food is the best for their dog, but this only compounds matters further, since finding the nutritional balance in homemade dog food becomes even more difficult. Especially, the ratio of calcium and phosphorus, which is crucial for a dog’s health. If this ratio is not maintained, then dogs phlebotomize from their own blood, which is not right as far as the dog’s health is concerned. In the quest to find a perfect food that will accomplish these requirements of the dogs, bone meal was considered to be the ideal solution. But what exactly is it? Let’s find out. What is Bone Meal? The mouth is the first stop in the digestive tract, so it is no surprise that improved oral health also affects the health of your dog's digestive system. But the impact bones have on digestion goes far beyond that.When most people talk about raw meaty bones, they’re speaking specifically about recreational-type bones. These are the kinds of bones that you can give straight to your dog and expect them to chew on for long periods. But bone can also be added to your dog's diet in ground form. A raw meat diet is recommended to help encourage good pH levels in the stomach and support your canine pal’s system to return to the way nature intended.. This type of diet will also promote the necessary digestive enzymes and induce a better gut microbiome.
