I love giving our dogs beef rib bones and elbow bones. I’m not comfortable with marrow bones, because they try and break them apart. I was going to buy our dogs necks, but learned about the dangers if they try to swallow them hole so I passed. I would love to give them chicken pieces, but I don’t have a place to feed our dogs while monitoring them this time of year, but once a nice day comes around, we’ll give chicken a try 🙂
Raw Chicken Necks or Chicken Wings make a great snack for Dogs. They love it and will be more than happy with their little treat.

Janelle – Entire carcasses would most likely be of low risk. If you were feeding primarily chicken necks, I would be concerned and would advise to feed a higher quality protein source or at the very least to provide a variety of animal protein sources. If you are worried, checking a dog’s thyroid hormone levels is a simple blood test that your veterinarian can do for you. Raw Advantage Organic Whole Chicken Necks for Dogs and Cats

There is still one primary rule of thumb when feedingsmall dogs and toy breeds, and that is to feed big! A small dogdoes not need small food when it comes to raw diets. That meanssteering clear of chicken necks and wings; these are too small and aretoo easy for the dog (yes, even a toy dog!) to attempt to swallowwhole, which then results in gagging or choking (natural responses, butscary to see!). One of the endearing personality traits of many smalldogs is that they think and act like they are much bigger than theyreally are. This goes for feeding, too. A pint-sized Chihuahua is stillgoing to think it is a huge wolf-like dog when it spots that raw meatybone. The behavior is ingrained, and the desires to rip, tear, chew,gulp, and swallow (sometimes with emphasis on gulping and swallowing,especially if the dog was fed commercial food before) should still bevery strong. So get rid of the lone chicken wing and neck; only feedthose if, and ONLY IF, they are attached to half of a breast, half of achicken, or a whole bird.What size? It is important to choose the correct size of poultry neck. You want your dog to chew and break down the neck slowly and to not swallow large pieces. You will need to select the appropriate size of neck depending on your dog's size. Chicken necks come in one size. Turkey necks come in 2 sizes: hen and tom. Chicken necks are appropriate for tiny dogs, while hen turkey necks are better for medium-size dogs. For Chihuahua-size dogs, cut the chicken neck in two pieces and feed only one piece per meal. For small dogs either a whole chicken neck or a third of a hen turkey neck is good. Labs may eat a whole hen turkey neck or a portion of a tom turkey neck. Large dogs such as Rottweiler's may be able to eat a half of a Tom turkey neck.It is important that dogs just don’t gulp down large bony pieces. Dogs can easily digest larger raw chicken bones, but large pieces of denser beef bones may get stuck halfway through the bowel and require medical attention. Normally, a dog will slowly chew or break the raw bone into small pieces that are easily digested. Dogs that want to gulp and swallow big bony pieces may be better candidates for chicken necks, thighs, and wings. Poultry bones are lighter, less dense, and can be easily digested even when swallowed whole!RAW CHICKEN NECKS - ONLY RAW bones (never cooked) is seriously being reinforced by the veterinary community.

Australian veterinarian Ian Billinghurst, who says dogs would be healthier if they followed the diet of their predecessors in the wild, maintains that raw chicken necks are soft enough for most dogs to chew and digest.

• Pet owners nervous about feeding neck bones, can grind meat or purchase it already ground. According to Natural Dog Health Remedies, chicken neck bones become too brittle once they are cooked and should only be served raw.
• * Brittle bones can cause numerous problems, ranging from choking to stomach and intestinal issues.
• Raw chicken necks provide calcium and act as a toothbrush to keep your dog's teeth clean. If you choose to feed raw chicken necks as part of your dog's diet, select necks from chicken raised without antibiotics or hormones.
• The necks should make up no more than 30 percent to 50 percent of your dog's nutritional intake.
