Dr. Chris Smith, Medical Director at Valley Central Emergency Veterinary Hospital in Whitehall, Pennsylvania and his dog Snickers share their thoughts on bones in dog food. Dr. Chris answers the question: are bones in Merrick canned dog food safe to give dogs?
The answer: Bones are safe as long as they are properly cooked.
Merrick's special cooking process features high-temperature, pressure-cooking so bones are completely soft and safe for dog consumption. The bones found in cans of Merrick's Wingaling, Smothered Comfort, Backcountry Hearty Chicken Thigh Stew, and Gameday Tailgate are so soft, you can mash them with a fork or your fingers. These recipes feature full chicken thighs and wings, with the bones intact. The bones provide the full flavor your dog loves, along with important calcium and nutrients.
