Can Dogs Eat Turkey Leg Bones?

after my mom cooks something that has a bone in it, ham, ribs etc.
she always gives the bone to my dog. and my dog eats the bone completely through the day.
Now we're cooking our turkey.
Is It good to fed dogs turkey bones? would giving them turkey be bad for them?

Only if they haven't been cooked. ANY bone that has been cooked has become brittle, and a dog chewing on it can cause it to shatter into small pieces, which can choke or seriously cut, your dog. Only give raw bones to your dog.

My vet told me that "No bone is a good bone". I don't take it that far, my guys do get steak bones or big soup bones and do fine with them, but cooked poultry bones will splinter, and can cause real problems.
