    How often do you feed RMBs? Do you feed them as meal replacements or in addition? I'm talking marrows, split knuckles, etc. things that take time and work to get through.

    Once a weekish.. I feed them when I need the dogs to be busy and not following me around with their noses all up in my bizniss. I do not count them towards a meal but as a special extra bonus treat.

    About once/week. The ones I get have a fair amount of meat on them too so I count them toward a meal for Kim and Web, possibly as a whoole meal for Web depending on size. Extra food is, um, not a concern for Mira lol

    Right now my life is a little too busy for raw so they get RMBs as I have them on hand from my normal cooking. So the other night I made chicken wings and shared. Willow got a T bone from my pre cook steak trim.

    I just randomly toss some in the yard for the dogs to chew on...no real set pattern or timetable. I do not usually count them as meals unless its something like ribs or deer legs which have a lot of meat on them

    Another here who gives them whenever they are around. Might be once a week, once a month, or every six months. Just depends on what I'm cooking. He gets raw scraps quite often, though. Pork slices too thin to bother cooking, bacon, chicken gizzards when I make them for lunch, turkey wings/necks, whatever.

    If it is a lot, I generally let it replace a meal. He gets fat easily. Also, when he is overfed, he often gets sick. And I don't like getting up every 3 hours to take him out.

    I also fast after raw meals/bones.

    It depends on when I'm at the butchers and how much he can give me. It doesn't take my dogs very long to get through them. Depending on how much meat is on them I may or may not count it as a meal

    To Rosey? Never, that would mean she'd have to, gasp, CHEW something! And that's just crazy talk :rolleyes:

    Ella gets chicken wings once or twice a week.

    Marrow bones and knuckle bones are recreational bones... they aren't meaty at all! :p I don't feed them as a meal replacement, unless it's a really meaty knuckle. I don't feed marrow bones or any bare bones/leg bones at all. Way too dangerous and prone to cracking teeth!

    I give my dogs a meaty knuckle for 20 minutes or so twice a month, supervised. It cleans their teeth SO well! I just don't want them to get to the boney center and try to ingest it. The connective tissues, cartilege and flesh on the knee is what really scrubs teeth clean. Brody'smom's Golden almost died from eating a whole knuckle bone... he had to get surgery and nearly didn't make it, and that really scared me.

    As a treat or if I'm feeling guilty going to work or just because she's adorable. If it's something really meaty I might give her a bit less at regular mealtime after.
