I can't remember why but I was told never to give soup bones to dogs.

A large raw femur full of marrow bones are ok, however you would be better to source a meaty bone, one that has the meat on it so that your dog can eat this as a meal or part of their meal and enjoy the pulling and ripping off the meat as well as getting into the bone.

With an 8 week old puppy, I would give a chicken wing, or a large femur bone where he can chew and chew and basically get nothing, maybe a bit of marrow - this will satisfy his chewing desire but so will the chicken wing.

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
