Avoid Letting Your Dog Chew & Eat Turkey Bones
Any bones that come from birds like turkey should never be given to your dog for chewing or eating purposes. Turkey bones can be potentially dangerous for dogs especially when they are cooked.
What happens if my dog eats turkey bone?
Turkey bones can be a threat to dogs because of their brittle nature. When cooked, turkey bones can easily splinter and produce sharp edges. Once swallowed, those sharp edges may cause internal damage and bleeding in the dog’s body, especially around the esophagus or intestinal tract.
You will know if the turkey bone is causing problems in your dog’s body if he starts to display symptoms like bloody stools, lack of appetite, and vomiting. You should take your dog to the vet as soon as you sense that something is wrong with your dog.
Can dogs have turkey neck bones?
Yes, but we would only recommend the turkey neck bones that have been specifically prepared for dog consumption. Turkey neck bones can make good natural chews for medium to large-sized dogs. They are rich in natural calcium and also offers a crunchy texture which dogs very much enjoy.
