I have read through previous posts on raw feeding but have a couple of questions I can*t see already answered.

First - is it important to defrost bones before feeding? Especially chicken?

Second - what about those very thin, needle-like bones you get on chicken legs, are they safe? Having grown up in the 60s when we fed our dogs all sorts of leftovers, except chicken bones which were considered dangerous, I*m finding it hard not to worry.

Third - how do raw bones compare with the roast ones you get in pet shops? Molly eats lots of those roast beef rib ones.

Grateful for any advice.

Right that one worked will try and reply in more detail.

Chicken legs are not the right ratio of muscle meat to bone and are not a good starter bone for dogs new to raw although any dog used to raw meat and bones can deal with them absolutely fine.

I feed some bones frozen they last longer that way.

The bones from pet shops are not always roast some of them are actually deep fried. Same with pigs ears and other similar treats. They are also usually imported China make a lot of them and I personally would not buy them as the welfare standards will not be as high as in the UK.
