Suggestions for feeding dogs bones:
Always feed bones raw and avoid giving leftover cooked bones which are more likely to splinter and cause constipation. Observe your dog when giving bones.
For small dogs,
consider chicken wings or necks and brisket bones.
For large dogs,
lamb shanks or large ox bones are going to be more appropriate.
When it comes to feeding your new pup
you have two different options:
A commercially prepared diet, either dry, wet or semi-moist. All commercially prepared diets are required to be balanced for your dog’s needs, however, differences do exist. Generally speaking, premium type foods such as Science Diet contain less cereal, higher quality and quantity protein and fewer preservatives and colourings. The importance of this is that they are better digested, your pup produces fewer stools and a smaller quantity can be fed.
