Bingo and Mitzi are raw fed and get meaty bones twice a day with their meals. Chicken and duck feet, wing tips, turkey and chicken necks. They basically crunch their portions up within seconds to, maybe, a minute. Mitzi (the MinPin) stands at her dish and eats them, and Bingo carries his to his cushion on the floor to eat, however, he holds the piece in his mouth the whole time.
I also give them harder bones occasionally like pork ribs or beef leg bones that I’ve sawed into small half-rounds, which they gnaw on during the day, either outside or in the kitchen. TBH I don’t fuss too much over raw bones, sometimes they eat them on the area rug and they are left lying around on the floor. I clean the floors weekly and wash the rug once a month.
Mitzi and Bingo are the 4th and 5th dogs I have raised on prey model raw and their teeth are perfect (Mitzi is 8 yrs old), with no extra brushing and never going to a vet for a ‘dental’. My other dogs from years past were all Chihuahuas with the same great teeth, despite poor breeding and, well, being Chihuahuas!
