Does anyone have a problem eating the small bone fragments in Nature's Variety's frozen raw foods? Human's Aby Leroy has been doing a panting/lip smacking thing and someone suggested that perhaps a piece of bone got stuck thinking Leroy only eats the raw beef shrug Human's other cat eats the organic chicken one and doesn't have any problems. Human has sent a video of Leroy panting/lip smacking to the vet and is waiting to hear back. Leroy only occasionally does the panting/lip smacking and it happens hours after eating shrug He does not vomit and Human checks his mouth every day so she can brush his teeth.

Merlin, I've heard this from many people about their kitties. It doesn't always cause problems but it can and does quite often. thinking

Although I'm new to Catster, I'm not at all new to raw feeding... and I've not yet heard of any issues with the size of the bones in any of the commercial products.
