Small bird bones,etc, are probably no problem for most dogs.  It's the
hollow, leg bones, of turkeys and chickens,etc, that splinter when crushed
in the dog's mouth that present a problem.  If the dog swallows the bone
with the splintered end entering the throat or intestine first, they can
easily become lodged in the dog's system and require surgery.

Beef and pork bones seldom splinter, so they are much safer for the canine
members of the family.

I use your website as a source of information quite often.  Keep up the
good work.
