Turkey necks?

Max loves raw marrow bones, I give them to him so he can clean his teeth and he likes them because to him they're a treat.

I've read that turkey necks are also pretty good at cleaning dogs teeth so I am thinking of changing it up a little and buying a couple of turkey necks for next time. I'm just worried that he won't like them. I've never given him chunks of raw meat before, just the raw marrow bones... though he does generally love absolutely everything I give him. Except lemons, he hates lemons, or anything citrusy for that matter...

Does anyone here give their dogs turkey necks? Do your dogs like them?

I feed raw, so yes.

Since Max is an adult my only concern would be possible constipation from to much bone in his diet. It would probly take some trial and error to figure out if that'd be a problem for him or not.

Poultry necks are generally some of the safest types of raw meaty bones you can give to a dog. I'd be surprised if he did not like them.

There are the usual cautions about giving raw bones, but I would also add that you should not give him kibble at the same time, as the two foods digest differently, and given together can, in some dogs, upset the tummy.

Oh, so could a raw turkey neck count as a meal? And I didn't know turkey necks have bones. I am so clueless!

Necks are basically spine, so yup, lotsa bone

If he's currently doing ok with the bones you've been giving him he MAY be fine with the mix of kibble and raw, but it IS something else to watch for.

We've fed turkey necks before. It may take him a little to understand how to chew on it/it's okay to eat. I gave Quest a chicken neck last night actually

I feed 100% raw, and all of mine love turkey necks. And yes, you can make a meal of them.

Well, I'll give it a try. I'm sure Max will like it.

I feed Mollie raw, and I do indeed give her turkey necks on a regular basis. They are her favorites. She eats them before the rest of her food. Rest assured that, if Mollie is any display of doggie nature, your sweetheart will appreciate them!
