Back 2 Basics Hen Heads come in a package of 12 raw chicken heads, a great high-calcium snack for small and medium dogs. Raw meaty bones are a key part of a raw diet, providing minerals as well as dental health benefits for your pet. Chicken heads are approximately 75% bone and 25% meat/organs.
It is understandable why some pet parents avoid feeding raw heads or feel squeamish about it, but raw animal heads are great options to add to a raw diet if you can get over the fear factor! They provide a great source of calcium due to their edible bone content. In addition to calcium, raw animal heads include eyeballs and brains which have nutritional benefits all on their own. Overall, raw brains have a near 1:1 protein to fat ratio which makes them an ideal organ choice for keto diets. Additionally, raw brain is high in Vitamin B12, selenium, and higher in omega-3 fatty acids in comparison to omega-6 fatty acids.
*True Carnivores recommends that you always supervise your pet while chewing bones or other chews, and that you select bones that are appropriate for your pet’s size and chewing style. When in doubt or if you’re trying raw bones for the first time, we always recommend choosing a larger bone to minimize risk if your dog is a little too enthusiastic!
