Any age is fine. Recommended are rib, neck and spine, rather than weight bearing bones, although lots of us give huge marrow bones. Beef or lamb, not pork. Or if you are giving as a meal, chicken wings, carcasses or necks.

If you are feeding NI, do you have to feed bones to suppliment the diet or can you feed NI as the 'main food' and only give bones as occassional treats?

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that do you have to feed both NI and bones hand in hand as this is the principle of a raw food diet?

Would it be ok to feed NI without giving bones? Not that this is a problem for me I was just curious to the effects! :)

You do not have to feed bones while feeding the NI as there are ground bones already in the food, which is why I love this food so much......no risk of chocking on a bone. although I have given poppy the odd chicken wing and lamb rib bone before going down the NI route but tbh it scared me to death. :eek:

Dexter had meaty veal bones from my farmers market from 8 weeks and now he has chicken wings although he likes me to hold it for him as he can't be bothered to eat it if I dont! He is supposed to eat it on his towel which I then put in the wash. If I give it to him outside it's straight in the flower bed!

I feed them indoors, I'm afraid. No kids and laminate floors, plus shoes aren't exactly sterile, so I don't worry about it. We're all still alive! I think a lot of people give them in the crate.
same hear 4 years feeding raw and no one has died or been ill. my little brother is 7 so he was 3-4 years old when we started.

I had to Google "'70s poo." :eek: Which is going to totally amuse the next person who uses my computer and Googles something (if it pops up in the auto-fill). So the bone going through the digestive tract is a good thing? I obviously need to read more about this.
