@baymule - After pressure canning the bones get soft enough to smush 'em up with your fingers and the dogs can eat them with no danger. I generally can chicken thighs and drumsticks on the bone. When I pull the meat offa the bones for us - the dogs get those nice soft bones.

I only can the back pieces with the bones, never tried the thighs and legs.

Ive run just bones in the pressure cooker to get broth and soften the bones for the dogs. The pressure cooker gets used more for stuff like that for soup than most anything. Cheap chicken at the store becomes broth and dogfood here. Used to use the slow cooker. Id run it for a full day or more. Couple hours in the pressure cooker makes me happier.


I was making and using bone broth long before it was the cool thing.
