      Jerky From Ground Meat that Contains Ground Bone?

      It seems I can buy a ground kangaroo raw meal with offal and ground bone, both kangaroo as well, for less than half the price I now pay at a butcher shop for human grade just ground kangaroo. The bone content is 15%. I thought I'd use it for Oban's jerky treats but checked with my Vet and she said no. She said I can't (she meant shouldn't) cook the bone. I didn't anticipate that being a reason not to use the stuff. I know I shouldn't cook and feed whole bones because the cooking makes them apt to splinter. This stuff is ground though, it looks like hamburger. I just googled and found nothing to say either way, yay or nay. Anybody know? Thoughts?

      Your vet does know the bone is ground, doesn't she? Isn't bone meal somehow heat processed?

      Yes, my VEt knows the bone is ground. I don't think (I haven't bought the stuff yet) the ground in this is as fine as bone meal. I'm expecting to be able to see bits of bone while bone meal is almost dust. At least the stuff I put on my roses is. I know edible bone meal is NOT the same as agricultural bone meal.
