DHau, don't worry if your puppy gets some chunks off the rib bones. I feed raw rib bones and other meaty bones to my dog all the time, and she does great with them. Eating bones is a good source of calcium and other minerals for a young dog. And they get the minerals they need in just the right combination. They have very strong stomach acids that can dissolve and digest the bone. This is only true if the bone is raw, cooking them changes their composition, and as others said, can be brittle and a dangerous.
