Anybody ever have a dog choke to death on chicken bones?

I figure this to be an old wives tale. I've never heard of one, but heard the story a million times.

I kind of see it as if the dog doesn't chew something up well enough before he swallows it, it might be a defective dog.

 

 

I cooked to roosters feet yesterday, fed them both one, and neither of them died or choked to death.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

The issue is not that they choke on chicken bones, it's the bones splinter and tear up the stomach and intestines. My dogs get raw chicken with the bone which is not a problem but no BBQ, fried or baked chicken bones. These will splinter.  When making broth, and boil a LONG  time, the bones are soft enough for me to eat and I have lousy teeth.

Incidentally, dogs will bolt their food. They do not chew like people are supposed to do. :yiipchick

I've fed my dogs both raw and cooked bones of all sorts of animals over the last 40+ years. Never had one have an issue. 

 

You don't have to cook the feet before feeding them to the dog, btw. My dog eats them raw just fine.

It was pretty funny yesterday. I had the feet, gizzard, liver and other bits cooking in a pan on the stove.

The wife walks through the kitchen, and proclaims, I AIN"T EATIN' IT!!!!

 

I said what?

She said whatever's on the stove.

 

I just had to laugh and tell her it was for the dogs.
