Duck necks are the necks of ducks without the head, crop or skin. They are bigger than chicken necks and smaller than turkey necks, and usually measure at about eight or nine inches.
Duck necks are considered “raw meaty bones.” Raw poultry bones such as chicken, turkey and duck bones are soft and pliable, making them easy for dogs to digest.
Full of natural nutrients to promote health and vitality, duck necks are the perfect snack or reward for all types of dogs. They are considered by our experts as a raw bone for beginners and are suitable for dogs over 16 weeks of age.
Chewing is an important part of a raw diet and has many benefits for dogs. Not only is it great for strengthening teeth and overall dental hygiene, dogs find chewing calming and comforting.
Duck necks contain high levels of B vitamins and minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium, zinc and selenium. B vitamins are particularly important for promoting metabolism, as well as supporting heart health.
Phosphorus plays an important role in bone creation and promotes strong bones. Potassium is also vital for heart health, as well as plays a role in nerve conduction.
Finally, zinc and selenium are anti-oxidants which are extremely important for supporting many life processes, such as utilisation of oxygen, DNA production and maintaining cellular membranes, as well as fighting free radicals.
