Huh? Is this guy serious?
His statement on youtube.
Wellness V.P. Greg Kean stated that he is "not concerned." He admitted that he gives his dog whole eggs, that's not just the whites and the yolk, but the WHOLE EGG IN THE SHELL!!!
Ok his point is? This makes him sound like a nut job. Why does he care what someone "admitted" to feeding their dog. I admit to feeding my dogs whole eggs. Many raw feeders and even those that feed kibble give whole eggs. There is nothing wrong with feeding egg shell, it is a source of calcium for one.
Anyway he said in the video "when the kibble dissolves that bone becomes a little dagger" um when the kibble dissolves the bones should dissolve and if not they shouldn't harm the dog. Then he worries its going to cut his dogs stomach or intestines? No the bone will either digest or if not it will be eliminated in the stool. Esophagus I could see being a concern but since dogs still eat other bones they must have a tough esophagus preventing harm. I eat them and they don't harm me.
I can understand being upset because it shouldn't be there, its stated that its deboned and they say its rare but then its in there. That isn't quality control. It would tick me off to. I wouldn't however worry my dog is going to get a cut stomach or intestines, that would be silly. I've eaten fish bones (I don't recall it ever hurting my esophagus but its possible one could catch wrong going down). A dog with a stronger stomach acid and typically thicker wall isn't going to have a problem with those "daggers". So frankly I would complain for sure but not worry if I did give it to my dog. If I was so worried I'd also quit buying it and not feed it nurmerous times over.
I also thought it was weird how he said Petco carries it so I assumed it would be safe. Um ok why is that? They just buy food to sell to consumers, it doesn't mean they buy the safest or best products. They can sell foods with toxics, on recall list or with dangers.
Heck here is what some of my dogs have popped out, sorry for the poo pic but most of the poo is dissolved away anyway.
Yeah I'm not going to worry about myself or my dog eating a 1/4th inch fish bone.
