I just grind it all up, veggies, bones and all in my blender.

    I havent heard anyone say yet that I should not grind up the bones, and so I do. If I dont have much skin in it, I go ahead and grind it right away. Otherwise let it cool off in the frig and take the fat off the top. High PUFA and damaged beyond repair, so says Mark regarding Chicken fat.

    I have also been giving my dogs the whey off my homemade yogurt. One drinks it, one doesn't.
    Thanks! I, too, add vinegar.

    A few more questions, please...

    After grinding in the blender, then you drink cups of it like soup? And - do you personally use this method (grinding bones) with other types of animal bones as well (like beef or lamb), or do you process only chicken bones in this way?

    Edit - thanks for the link to Mark's article - just read it.

    You're more than welcome to steal that tip! Cats have such special needs with their vitamins, enzymes, and minerals that I'm always afraid do more harm than good. After all, giving them enough taurine is crucial to their eyesight! Primal Raw is just so easy with their frozen meaty nuggets that thaw easily, apparently taste great, and really don't cost all that much more than canned.

    If your cat has issues with their kidneys or constipation, then including bones is not a good idea. The higher calcium content could aggravate renal failure or make the constipation worse. Other than those two issues, bones are a very good idea!

    Yes I drink it. It is fairly thick so I like to put it in a bowl, and use a soup spoon. I think I am getting something more that way I guess. Lately I have been using it like a gravy for my tators, or even more broth for more like a soup. I havent made a big pot of soup yet, but if I did, it would be my chicken stock.

    I havent done other bones yet, but I would if I had them. I think they might need to go a couple of days though if you want to grind the bones.

    Thanks for the info! I don't have a cat, I drink it ha. But still good to know incase I ever do. I love cats, and do want one again some day but my daughter that is back home until after graduation, has issues with them
    65lbs gone and counting!!
