Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Personally, I don't know what's wrong with turkey bones (unless they splinter a lot?)
Suka has a turkey neck every Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter...and he hasn't had any problems.

Although, NEVER feed your dog any lamb bones. I can attest they splinter really bad, and if Suka wasn't smart enough to spit out the shards, I would have ended up with a dead dog!

Thanks for the cute picture on what not to feed dogs. I ike it.

Kerian did some counter surfing last weekend and she ate 5 pumpkin/choc.chip cookies We don't believe she got that much choc.

She scoops up alot of things when we walk then. the other day she got some gum i one piece from her and she thru up later that evening the other piece.

She is a hand full and Blaze is my little gentleman..

As for turkey bone I think cooked bones splinter to much. Raw ones probably are okay.

My mother in law had a schnoodle that ate about 2 lbs of Godiva chocolate 2 years in a row and live to be 18.5 years old.

I read somewhere that turkey was bad for dogs. I don't remember where.

Turkey is in a lot I dog foods. If your dog isn't used to eating rich foods, then it may cause problems.

Ah I see. I reread what it said too. Just certain parts of the turkey.

This list is very misleading.

1. While onions are generally bad in any quantities, especially for smaller dogs, garlic can be just fine in moderation. In fact, small doses of garlic can even be beneficial as homeopathic flea and tick supplements.

2. There is nothing wrong with feeding your dog RAW turkey bone. Almost any raw bone is perfectly healthy and in a raw diet is essential. Prey model raw feeding is based off of thos entire idea. Think about it, a wild canine isn't going to pick apart the animal from the bone or stop to cook its meat. It eats whole raw animal.

Don't feed COOKED bone of ANY kind to your dog. They splinter and can easily get lodged in their throats or puncture the bowels and or stomach.

There is nothing wrong with feeding your dog turkey unless your dog is allergic.

3. Its not a good idea to feed your dog table scraps at all unless you know exactly what went into the food. Training wise, I wouldn't recommend it either. Keep dog and people food separate. Table scrap eaters turn into beggers. If they think that there's a chance they will get what is leftover, they will be there every time you eat just in case ;-)

Turkey is definitely fine, on Thanksgiving my dogs devoured a whole turkey together, haha.
For the person mentioning that they heard turkey was bad (yeah too lazy to scroll), the only thing I know that is "bad" about turkey is turkey kibble is not recommended for UTI/crystal prone dogs, just like salmon isn't.

And the stories about I fed Fluffy crushed glass and bleach and he lived to be 30 years old are exceptions to the rule. There are many things not healthy for your dog and if you're a responsible pet owner you avoid those items. It's a good list, especially the xylitol. They should have clarified the turkey bones.
