Lucky you - you should be nice to this butcher and I'm sure your GSD will love ripping all the extra meat from the bone

Thesilentone I will buy mine beef soup bones every once in awhile at the grocery store since they both love them. Might get some beef rib bones next time for a change.

Never thought about femur bones though. Do they have ones that have the knuckles already cut off or no?

I wouldn't recommend giving any bone that's been cooked. Too risky.

Just for the record, the slivers in the stomach were because the bones were boiled.

I tried giving Dexter a whole chicken now thats hes almost a year but all he did was drag it around the floor, ugh. He played with it but wouldnt eat it, Im surprised because he loves cooked chicken breast and rice. I guess thats what happens when you feed your dog kibble, they have no idea what to do with real meat.
Glad it helped. I was so confused when I first came here about which bones people were talking about I started taking pictures to confirm. LOL My husband thought I was nuts.

I pay anywhere from 1.49 to 1.99 a pound for the beef femur bones.

OMG!
I would be looking for a new vet. To recommend rawhide is just crazy! Not only is it full of chemicals, but it can cause intestinal blockages.

You are supposed to give the dog the bone and let him gnaw on it to clean his teeth, take it away before he starts to break off pieces.

Ok this may be a dumb question, but you give them those raw frozen bones just as is from the store? Raw and frozen, with all the meat on them?
