    Hello,
    I want to get some other opinions on dog food with chicken bones left in it. The one I am referring to is Merrick Classic Smothered Comfort All Breeds canned dog food. This is the first time I have fed this brand and I did not read the label closely enough. I was dishing up this morning for my Bouvier (1 yr, 73 lbs.), Molly, and found the knuckle from a thigh bone and then the rest of the bone. I went straight to the label and now see that they say the bone is cooked to softness and can be chewed. The way my dogs, Molly and all the Corgi’s I have raised, eat like pigs. They wouldn’t stop to chew a bone, they would swallow it. I’m not happy with this and I am wondering what others think of this approach to making canned dog food,

    I wouldn’t risk it. In fact, I avoid all canned food. Instead, I buy a quality kibble, and add toppers such as cooked ground turkey, scrambled egg, etc. plus a splash of water. I avoid canned foods in general (even for myself) as much as possible.
    PS: No bones (imo) I don’t enjoy going to the emergency vet.
    If your dogs need soft food, just presoak the kibble overnight in the fridg.

    Thanks. Just switching to giving her some moist, soft food with her dry food. The dry food is okay but there are times when she just avoids it. I am feeding some soft in the morning and now in the evening.

    I just cut them into small pieces with a spoon. They’re that soft.

    I forgot to mention, Nutrisca has decent canned food, if you are looking for something with a more chunky texture. I have been using their kibble (salmon and chickpea) for years and am pleased with the product.
