    I think if you grinder up so fine then there is not much to worry about. I cooked chicken and rice soup for my dog but only added a pinch of salt since I avoid heavily seasoning food. I am not sure if the rotisserie chicken carcus absorbed lots of seasoning or not, but I don't any harm after it is already grind up.

    You can try it, as long as the carcass is ground really fine. So there is no risk there might be splinters left in the mix :) I know someone who does this, and his dog is in top shape. So don't worry and give it a try, I'm sure your dog will love it!

    I think if the grinding is super fine it should be okay. Around here many still beleive in feeding their dogs the bones. I have to keep reminding myself of how dangerous it can be. I should get me one of those grinders.

    We have a family friend who used to collect the chicken bones in the chicken house near their home. She would grind it using mortar and pestle. We had already advised her against it but she said it was her vet who had recommended that food to her. And one time when she failed in grinding all the bones, there was a sharp sliver that got caught in the throat of her dog. Fortunately, that small bone did not linger in the throat. That served as a lesson to her and now she is allergic to chicken bones.
