    I’m sorry, this is about cat food instead of dog food…

    But I recently started Maddy on canned food, and she’s on Natural Balance right now. I noticed in her fish formula (tuna, whitefish, and salmon I think), there are lots of little white bone pieces. Is it good to have bones in the food, or should I try to look for varieties that have deboned proteins in them?

    The bones are a superior form of calcium and the way they cook them should leave the bones soft and digestable.

    That’s good. I thought the fish bones were great for animals, just wanted to make sure. Picky Maddy sometimes spits them out, but she usually eats 80-90% of them.
