Can dogs eat chicken bones?
Biologically appropriate foods, treats and bones are always first choice when it comes to canine health. Synthetic, processed dog chews and bones can contain potentially harmful and artificial ingredients and preservatives. Raw, natural chicken bones for dogs provide great mental stimulation, contribute to optimal health and are a low-fat, lean source of protein and other nutrients.
Contrary to popular belief, raw chicken bones are safe treat options providing the correct bone for your dog is chosen. Raw, non-weight bearing bones are fairly soft, so can be digested easily whilst offering a bit of a crunchy texture. Cooked bones, regardless of the protein source, have a different structure. They become more brittle and sharper, so have a high risk of splintering and should never be fed to your dog. Check out our blog for advice on how to select the right bone for your dog (insert link).
You should always supervise your dog with any type of bone.

Nutritious raw chicken on each bone
Chicken is naturally low in fat (lean) and high in protein with Omega 6 fatty acids and naturally occurring glucosamine. These nutritional qualities benefit your dog’s coat, bones, joints and digestive and oral health.
Supports skin and coat health
Due to the richness in vitamins, minerals and nutrients available in raw dog food, treats and bones, you'll notice a difference in your dog's coat in its shininess, softness and manageability when combing or brushing. Dogs detox a lot of waste through their skin, so the artificial additives, preservatives, colours and dyes that are common in many processed dog foods can cause skin irritation. Nutriment’s raw foods, bones and treats contain no added, biologically inappropriate ingredients meaning less scratching, rashes and skin irritation for your dog.
Supports digestive health
Dogs have a smaller and more efficient digestive system than humans. This means that their food is processed and absorbed quicker and more effectively. With raw food and treats, there are no added artificial ingredients or ingredients which are difficult to digest, meaning that raw food can be safely and comfortably digested as per your dog’s natural digestive process. This also means that there is less waste and a decrease in the amount of poo your dog will produce.
Supports oral health
Dental care is incredibly important for dogs. Poor oral health can lead to painful symptoms and diseases that can require serious medical intervention. A raw, biologically appropriate diet is most suited for dogs and will promote optimal oral health. Canine teeth are designed to tear off meat from bone, and their strong jaw is able to crunch through bone; Nutriment's raw chicken bones for dogs help to promote healthier teeth and gums in this way.
