Default Help IDing some food?

I don't know why I didn't do this before, but meh.

Could some of you raw feeders help me ID some of these bones I have? And are they okay to feed the dogs?





Anyone want to take a guess at this? LOL

Doc!

I prefer bones to be covered in meat. I probably would not feed the second pick, they're more (w)rec(k) bones than anything.

Top left bone in second pic looks like part of a backbone, if I am remembering correctly from my hours of hacking chickens up. Not sure about the rest? Some of those look vaguely like knucklebones..

Nolu, which onces do you think look like knuckle bones?

Yeah, I'm not really happy with these bones. But they were all free, so I try not to complain.

PW, I also like bones with more meat. Hense why I'm not happy with them since like NONE of them have very much meat. =/

You could always make homemade soup with 'em if not suitable to give to the dogs as is. Put in a pot with enough water to cover ... bring to a boil then simmer for a few hours, add any separate veggies and meat while simmering .. skim periodically while simmering to get a nice clear broth. Strain to remove all cooked bone fragments and anything else you don't want left in the finished soup. This freezes well ... can freeze in small batches, thaw to feed.

My dogs (and cats!) just LOVE homemade soup .. and all the nutrients from anything you add stays in the broth.

DOC!

Sorry, Jen, I have no idea. The second to last one reminds me of a knuckle bone, though.

I'm going to say...

1) Beef Ribs - very bare ribs. I would not feed those!

2) Knuckle bones with part of the femur attached. I would feed these, but supervise dilligently.

3) Knuckle bones? It would help if they were out of the bag. They look meaty and fatty, though... so I would feed them, and take them away when the tissue was gone.

4) Ew. D;

The first bag I would not feed.

The second bag I'd feed as a recreational chew - supervised. (looks like shanks with the end still attached, a knuckle and a neck/spine bone).

The third bag looks nice and meaty, but I can't tell what kind of bones are in there while in the bag.

The fourth bag looks like the inner part of a knee or shoulder joint (with the ball part). I'd feed that recreationally - supervised.
