With dogs being carnivores and all ,is it possible that some of them cannot tolerate raw meat at all ? The reason I'm asking , I feed my dog raw lamb shoulder bones for dental purposes . He gets about 3 a month and have noticed that every time he gets one ,he throws up the next morning. I didnt make the connection at first cause he is a puppy and well some of them are prone to upset tummies from time to time . But I haven't given him one in about 10 days now and he had one last night and for sure this morning he threw up outside. Same as the last one he had . The ones I buy have a fair amount of meat left on them , like lots in fact and he cleans the meat off really fast . Just wanted to get your opinions on this . I know its not the lamb cause I feed him Acana Lamb and Apple and he has no issues at all with that .

Thank you

when we started feeding iorek lamb again he was getting burpy and threw up a tiny bit after one meal. i asked a few questions on this forum and i was told that lamb is really fatty and that could be causing the problem. maybe that is the problem with your pup. have you tried different meats? maybe a less fatty meat might be better?

good luck with your pup :)

Ya come to think of it lamb is very fatty . Maybe I will try and find some beef rib bones and see how that works. I was kind of put off because they do such a great job keeping his teeth clean .


Anyways , Thanks

My dogs are raw fed. But I have one that will hurl at the smell of lamb. And ironically, she came to us and afterwards spent many years on Nutro lamb and rice.

Bella doesn't tolerate lamb either, makes her sick everytime. She does great on everything else, just not lamb.

Ok thanks everyone for the input . I'm about 99.9% sure now he isn't tolerating all that fatty meat left on the those shoulder bones . I took a real close look at the one in the freezer and yikes is there a lot of fat on those ones. Going to try something else .

Thanks everyone

Beef ribs are very fatty as well. From what nutritiondata has listed pork feet are leaner than ribs. I like pork neck bones as well, as long as they are the whole thing.

I'll check in with my meat dude and see if he has any pork neck bones . What do you mean " as long as they are the whole thing " . ?

Thanks

A whole pork neck bone is about 2 pounds. Some shops carry them this way and cut them to size when you buy them. Most shops cut them small. Don't get the small ones. If nothing else only the extremely boney vertebrae sections seem to be the ones to get into the package. The whole neck bone has a vertebrae section plus a spine.
