If your dog can ingest the ENTIRE bone in under 15 minutes then it's a RMB (raw meaty bone) - not a recreational bone.

I stay away from the marrow bones for 2 reasons - the marrow (which is VERY rich and can cause the runs) and the hardness of the bones (they were designed to carry around all that weight).

I prefer to give KNUCKLE bones - which are softer (more like cartilage) and, given enough time (like a couple hours), my guys can work them down to almost nothing.

One dogs RMB is another dogs Rec Bone so alot will depend on YOUR dog. My girl Sasha will eat an entire beef rib (bone and all) in just a few minutes but Mauser will just gnaw on it for days.
