    Is it OK to feed these straight from the freezer as a treat?

    My dog is on ordinary dry food which is unproblematic. I feed him some raw bones every other day and have just bought a load which I have frozen. Do I have to defrost them before feeding them? He can be a bit shy with his food so he may be put off with the texture anyway.

    thanks :)
     
  2. I really don't have any idea if its ok or not but I would of thought a frozen raw bone would have the same risk as a cooked bone as it wouldn't be soft.

    You can do but personally I don't really like to, I think it makes them even harder than when defrosted. I do feed chicken carcasses from the freezer because they start to defrost quickly any way, but harder bones I defrost first. I get a little concerned that it will harm their teeth.

    Thanks for that. I never thought about them being more brittle. It's not really a problem to take them from the freezer overhight anyway.
