Is Feeding Chicken With Bones A Good Source of Calcium, Iron and Potassium?

Is bone–in chicken ground in a meat grinder a good source of calcium, iron and potassium?

Jesse's Answer

What you need to worry about is the calcium to phosphorus ratio.

Unfortunately, all bone is high in phosphorus and so when you feed meat and bones, you are still getting more phosphorus than calcium.

Bones should be considered a mineral supplement, not a calcium supplement.

In nature, the best source of calcium for our pets is the blood. In lieu of blood, we use ground egg shells which are high in calcium and low in phosphorus to help balance the calcium to phosphorus ratio.

I'm A Sexy Canine

I don't want to wag my tail here too much, but I'm a sexy canine.

Now, I know what you're thinking and you're right, beauty comes from within, and it does! You see, in my case, my bowel is so clean, I can't help but be sexy.

I'm extremely vibrant and I owe it all to eating fresh wholesome foods. Fresh food helps maintain regularity naturally. In turn, this helps ensure toxins leave via my stools and not via my skin. Fresh food helps maintain friendly bacteria in my colon also.

Wholesome food keeps my bowels cleaner than a puppy that just had a bath!

Being able to rid my insides of toxins easily is vital to helping keep me a sexy canine on the outside with no extra weight due to a ballooned colon!

A clean colon will help give you a wonderful and vibrant Body Design By Katherine!
