Traveler's Mom My definition of a soup bone is a round bone with marrow on the inside. Feed them RAW and FROZEN! You'll see that it takes the dogs a much longer time to lick out the marrow so most don't get runny poops. My local grocery store actually calls them soup bones.

erfunhouse I second the turkey necks! Sabo takes about 5 min to eat it...though it could be because he has a cone on his head. BUT...he loves it and his teeth are gorgeous!

definitely

wolfstraum be careful with the knuckle part of the soupbone - there can be alot of cartilage (shiny white stuff) and I have seen alot of dogs get sick from eating it....I always give the marrow bone part --- and I know some dogs find the marrow too rich as well

If you give these bones "soup bones" be sure it is raw - do NOT cook them!!!

dawnandjr I would be careful about giving them something too rich. They could have loose stools. Knuckle bones are a great option, as well as chicken/turkey necks.
