Hector3 Straining is a bad sign. It can cause rectal prolapse. You can either feed them a lot of liver or foods that causes runs and hope that will help them pass or bring them into the vet and let them dig out whatever is causing them to strain.

Harry and Lola Lola will consume an entire cow femur bone if allowed, some dogs are not just satisfied with getting the marrow out and having a reasonable chew, they have to consume the entire thing. Good idea to remove raw bones once the marrow and/or meat has been chewed off

I throw out quite a big part of it. Midnite has no problems breaking bones, he has broke a femur bone. I thought he cracked a tooth so he gets those no more.

llombardo Not their first time with the bones. I gave them pumpkin at 12:30. I left work early because I was worried about them. I got some bread and gave them the whole loaf. They both pooped normally within a couple hours. Midnites poop was hard balls, so maybe not a bone stuck but to hard to push out? So far they are okay and acting completely normal, but now I am kinda scared to give them the knuckle bones and they love them.
