If my chef intelligence recalls me right... too much bone marrow consumption (if prepared wrongfully) can result in a very sick human or animal. By wrongfully, I especially mean under-prepared and raw.

I also boil and drain ground beef (smells terrible I might add), and mix it with the rice. It seems to help.

I give beef marrow bones raw or any bones raw, nothing smoked, dried or cooked. The marrow is very rich and sometimes some if it should be scooped out.

The OP is not feeding his dogs cooked chicken bones.

He said "He cooks the chicken with the bone + skin, then TAKES OUT the bones and skin, throws away the bones, chops the skin and puts it back in."

And I thought only chicken bones cooked are bad, but now I am seeing all cooked bones are bad?

I know all raw bones are good.

That is what I was always told as well. No chicken bones ever and only beef marrow bones if they were cooked. It is so hard to know what is right or wrong, there are so many different opinions on here.

Shepherdmom- cooked bones are bad! Raw chicken fine, raw turkey fine, raw pork fine etc... cooking makes them brittle and easy to splinter with large beef marrow bones it makes them harder so more prone to splintering as well as cracking a tooth because of how dense they are. The marrow doesn't really make dogs sick its just that it is a rich food and can cause an upset belly like too much grease/fat would for some people. Jinx does fine so i give her the entire thing some dogs get a bit of loose stools from a lot of marrow so we just take a spoon and scoop some out so they don't eat all of it but the raw marrow itself isn't going to make them sick like from food poisoning or anything. Raw bones great-cooked bones bad... really simple... for dogs anyways people is a completely different story.

Interesting. Thanks for the info. Am going to have to rethink the soup/marrow bones my dogs have always gotten. I have always boiled and then frozen them. For a nice frozen treat on a hot day. Also always seemed to make teething puppies happy, but I wouldn't want anyone to get hurt from one.

marrow bones are awesome and you're right throw them in the freezer then hand them over makes teething pups and grown pups alike VERY happy but no need to boil them.
