Meat Hacks

We’re kicking off today with Meat Hacks… A question we get a lot is…Can I use a meat grinder to grind animal bones and make pet food? In some cases, that answer is yes. We have 2 Walton’s meat grinders that are approved, by the manufacturer, to grind SOME types of bones, and the Pro-Cut meat grinders can also grind some types of bones. From Pro-Cut there are #12, 22, and 32 size grinders available, and for the Walton’s grinders, you will want to look at the Walton’s Meat Grinders, in the #22 and #32 sizes. These grinders are capable of grinding smaller, softer animal bones, such as rabbit, whole chickens, chicken quarters, and other birds, due to the power and all metal construction of the units.

But, please avoid trying to grind large or dense animal bones such as bones from any type of large game, pigs, cows, deer, or sheep. And, always remember that busted splintered bones can get into the digestive tract of a pet and cause severe damage and even death by puncturing the walls of the intestines or stomach. So…YES…you can get a grinder capable of grinding certain types of bones by purchasing a Pro-Cut meat grinder or the Walton’s #22 or #32 Meat Grinder, but please do be wary of the dangers that can arise in feeding pets food with bones in them, if you don’t adequately and completely grind the bones.
