Puppy vs raw chicken wings

Help! I gave my 11 week old puppy a raw chicken wing for the first time and she chewed it a couple of times before gulping the whole thing!! I’m stressing out, she seems perfectly fine but should I be worried?!

@knnDon't panic -  unless she is a chihuahua sized breed it is unlikely to be a problem. To teach her to chew thoroughly try feeding her a frozen raw wing. :)

relax, highly unlikely to cause any problems. Feed frozen as Ruralpug suggests or after a normal meal.

@knn   what breed puppy do you have,  is she fine today,  hope all is good  :thumbsup: 

Thia!       And another techniques you can try to teach her to eat them more thoughtfully, is to hold part of the wing in your hand while the dog chews on the rest.   This can also help to make them more careful when taking treats generally.     But at this time of  year, frozen is the go.

Definitely feed frozen  :)

if she's a larger breed pup , crunching a couple/few times would break it up plenty for her to swallow comfortably - that's all dogs need to do , as their stomachs are built to digest nice  bones like that easily :) 
Our Koolie pups have been getting chicken wings , frozen, for some time ..they are a couple weeks younger than your pup , and get all sorts of other bones as well .
