8. We cut off some of the meat and give it to the cats
They just finished their first course - sauteed turkey liver in butter.

2. I have no freaking idea, but
believe it or not, it is my mother's second favorite part of the bird. The first is the gizzard.

whew :(

3. There are a number of small, sharp pieces of cartilage in the neck
that are not good for animal companions. If you can pick the small amount of meat off, or cook it off into a broth and feed the dog the cooled broth, that would be better. Kidney's, hearts and other bits are fine, though. That's what most dog chow is made of.

7. Canines in the wild eat birds. All birds have fine bones.
There may be a danger, just my opinion.

9. i know many will disagree..
But UNCOOKED turkey necks are actually very healthy for dogs. many people feed their dogs what is known as the BARF(biologically available raw foods) diet, which consists of mostly uncooked turkey necks, chicken etc.. all bones that are not weight bearing are considered safe. my sister has fed her dogs raw for close to two years and they love it.

i know dogs have been domesticated, but do you think if they came across chickens or turkeys in the wild they would somehow eat it without consuming the bones?

10. I doubt it.
Turkey necks have all sorts of small pieces. The sorts of things that can easily lodge in a dog's throat. I would take the meat off of the bones and then add the results to a kibble mix for fiber.

The risk to the dog outweighs the dog's happy scarfing. A boneless turkey neck is just as good.

12. you have to understand the distinction between cooked and uncooked
once bone has been cooked it's physical properties change drastically.


think about what is in dog food.. it's mostly corn and rice etc.. do you think that wild dogs would eat these things over an actual protein rich prey animal?


hell, people shouldn't even really eat corn..
