Bones??

Can dogs have steak bones? (Beef)
When I was a kid we gave our dogs bones all the time, just not sure if they are too sharp.... thanks for letting me know (yes cooked)

No matter how big or how small, you should be able to find Joy everyday....

Re: Bones??

I can get the large beef leg bones from my supermarket. Are these OK? Is it better to give these raw or cooked. They are very heavy, have a little meat on them and are filled with marrow. If you do give them raw, could you have a problem with the marrow getting rancid before they eat it?

Re: Bones??

i give my dog femur bones (leg bones). sometimes they're cooked sometimes they're raw. my most people say give them to them raw.
there's normally 3 or 4 of them laying around. i've never had a problem with them becoming rancid.

Re: Bones??

Does the same rule apply to pork bones? I know not to give them cooked, but I am going to make pork chops tomorrow, can I cut around the raw bones before cooking and give them to Mandi? Up to now she has only had beef and chicken bones (raw, yes)

Re: Bones??

Maybe a silly question, but I can't think of the answer. Why raw bones and so emphatic with NO on cooked? Thanks

Re: Bones??

Because cooked bones splinter. Large cooked bones can splinter even more easily than chicken bones, yet everyone knows never to feed cooked chicken bones.

Also cooked bones are harder and can break teeth. Raw recreational bones can break teeth as well, but its more likely to happen with cooked bones. A friend of mine had to pay hundreds of dollars to get a teeth pulled from 2 of her dogs. The first time she had offered the cooked bone, the second time her roommate left one out even after being asked repeatedly not to.

Re: Bones??

See, I knew there had to be a sensible answer, other than they can be very sharp, especially when you "find" that bone in the dark with bare feet! Thanks for taking the time to respond. No more doggie bags for Tucker And he did so love the treat last Saturday night! I didn't let him keep the bone long after he got the meat off.
