Do you supplement you or your pet's diet with bone or bone meal?

And if so what kind of bones?

Also, after making a batch of bone broth from lamb, chicken, or pork bones, I will often eat some of the softened bones. Straight up mineral dose. :)

His stools are very compact with bones in his diet, I think that is a good sign, not sure how that would translate to humans. He wasn't pleased about passing a whole chicken vertebra though as it has sharp corners! TMI?

Cool yea, I always hear how native humans never let any part of the animal go to to waste so that got me wondering about bone meal. After I learned from answering a different question that the calcium in bone seems to be bound as hydroxyapatite which appears to be a superior source of calcium as opposed to other calcium salts I just wanted to know who if anyone has experience supplementing bone meal in either their diets or their pet's diets. Bones would be ideal but I figured nobody here probably eats bones on a regular basis, lol.

I myself don't have a pet, but when I do get a dog, I'll be sure to throw him a raw bone to gnaw on every now and then. For myself, I've tried bone broth, but have never consumed bone meal. I have had egg shells ground up into my protein shakes with the rest of the raw eggs. I never got sick, but never felt good. Indifferent.

I have been feeding my dogs and cats raw bones as long as they have had they are adult teeth. Raw bones are best feed for dogs and its up to you what you want to give your dog? I think dogs are domestic wolf and wolves eat raw bones so same as we should give raw bones to our dogs for good health. I like to drink bone broth because bone broth give me more energy and super mineral drink. Every morning, i used to drink bone broth rather than coffee.

Google "Prey Model Raw Feeding" for great info on Paleo for dogs. I've been Raw for my pups for 9 years and will never feed kibble or canned again.

No, but he does get fresh, raw bones (lamb, beef, chicken) everyday. He loves them and they are excellent for his health and teeth. I therefore do not see any benefit from supplementing. Was there something in particular that you think bone meal would help with?
He's a greyhound by the way, 40kg, 8 years old and in excellent health.

I feed my cat a commercial raw food (Primal brand) that contains raw, ground bones, and occasionally give him raw chicken with bones. He has no trouble breaking up and swallowing the bone and seems to really enjoy it. (admittedly I get nervous when he's eating whole bones; a lifetime of being told [cooked] bones will get caught in their throats sticks with me.)

As for my diet, lots of bone broth! I have some just about every day. Good stuff. My broths are always very gelatinous and I feel it's helpful for joints, hair, and nails. Kitty gets some bone broth mixed with his food as well.
