Thanks. He is a pretty methodical eater. I don't think gulping would be an issue, so I might give these a try. However I just found another store that sells raw turkey necks in bulk. Might be a better option, we'll see.Whole, uncut ones are really the ones you want. If your dog will chew those , they should be ok. If he wants to try to gulp with no chewing I wouldn't use them. I would continue to look for a smaller store with a butcher who can give you whole uncut ones.
