My holistic vet is a big fan of raw Turkey necks. Her reasoning is,  his will to live etc. Something that He would really enjoy. Simon is a very strong chewer.  he will eat that turkey neck within 60 seconds and then I watch him for an hour to make sure he’s fine. I know many onco vets say  they are not a fan of raw which I would not do  exclusively anyway. I’m wondering what other think of salmonella etc. for a raw turkey neck given daily or  a few times a week? Thanks

We used to give Jerry raw chicken but only outside. I personally don't think there's any more risk of salmonella poisoning with raw meat fed to dogs and cats, than there is for the average person who prepares and uses meat products in their home (and as a lifelong vegetarian that's saying something). 

Oncologists don't like their patients to be raw fed while they are going through treatment, because of the risk of salmonella poisoning for animals with compromised immune systems. Some folks decide to hold off on the raw food, but lots of raw feeder parents still do it, and I personally haven't heard of any of our raw fed members having any kind of issues. We have posts about raw feeding in the Tripawds Nutrition blog.

I love that Simon digs the turkey necks! Wyatt Ray got too crazy wild / resource guarding on any kind of raw meat so we had to stop feeding it to him. I wish he wasn't such a maniac so he could enjoy it again, but that's sure not going to change.

Well for goodness sakes Wyatt  Ray!!  If your hoomans  would quit trying  to steal your Turkey necks and stick to their veggies,  you wouldn't  have to guard them!!🤣😂🤣

I’ve also read many times that turkey neck present as a large choking hazard. I believe it s very small percent but when it happens it’s usually a turkey neck?

I don't know of any stats on which bones dogs are more likely to choke on, but it would seem to me that it depends on the size of the dog.

A while back a boarded veterinary surgeon in L.A. told me that she had never helped a canine patient who had choked on a raw bone, but she has done many extraction surgeries on dogs who swallowed cooked bones. She was a fan of raw feeding.

I have occasionally given my dogs the pressure cooked large bones which they loved, and as soon as I saw any crack in the bone it was disposed of. According to that I read, the pressure cooked ones lasted longer strength wise.

It seems I remember somewhere that raw bones do not cause the same problems as cooked because cooking makes them more brittle and splinter. Now if I could remember where I learned that from it would be nothing shy of a miracle.. aka.. I do not have the data in hand. I think the raw bones break down easier and there are less chances of it splintering and getting caught up on the intestine. 

With that said I rarely feed bones. I have assisted the removal in too many surgeries and it can get ugly. Of course I shy away from rawhide for the same reason. I have seen too many almost die. I did recently start buying bully sticks over the last year or so, and although they do get slick and slimy like rawhide, they seem to easily fall into small pieces. I have also used buffalo ears, which seem to be harder to find anymore. They seemed a bit less greasy than traditional pig ears. 

I have heard of people that use a raw diet that regularly add bones to the mix, but I guess I am a chicken, lol. 🐥🐥🐥

Yup, raw bones (especially the smaller ones) are always bad news, when it comes to feeding them to dogs. Avoid them at all cost.
