Raw Turkey Neck

Is it safe to give Lukka the raw turkey neck from Easter turkey? Can she crunch up the bones? I read somewhere that because kibble and raw are digested at different rates she shouldn't eat both the same day. Is this true? Will any kibble feeders be giving the neck to their dog?

If she has had bones or raw meat before and has no poultry issues there is no reason to worry about sensitivity. BUT, turkey is very rich. If you are giving her the neck tonihgt, I wouldn't give her kibble tonight or immediately in the morning but given her size, I would either feed her kibble mid-morning or at noon.

Im not as concerned about mixing them, but it may give her runny stool. If her system isnt used to raw, she may also vomit it up. That said, yes she can eat the bones. BUT, watch her eat..turkey necks are something that should only be fed if you know your dog is a good chewer. due to their shape, they can easily swallow them whole and can possibly choke. Just be aware.

Thanks ~michelle~. She will have a good Easter even without it. A nice family hike and she's happy.
Hope your family have a wonderful Easter too.
