Hickory Smoked Bones

Postby biggggant » Fri Mar 13, 2009 6:57 pm

I was at the grocery store today and saw some Butcher Shoppe brand bones for dogs. I was in a hurry and I thought it must be safe if its for dogs. I got them and now I'm not sure if they are safe for my 13 week Diesel. What do you guys think?

This probably is not the answer you are looking for, but as a rule my wife and I never give things like (well anymore) this since it tends to give my girl nasty smelling farts. This goes for begging strips as well, I have never smelled nastier farts than the ones that are produed from begging strips.

They aren't safe if your dog can break and eat the pieces. Cooked bones are dangerous because they're sharp and don't break down very well in the dog's system, like most raw bones do.

i give my dog Pork Ham Bones. he looooves them. BUT....he must be supervised during his time with them. when he was younger, it would take him a good two weeks with the bone because he was still teething. now that he has a good set of chompers on him, he cracks thru in about an hour. If at any time a he bites off a small piece of the bone, i immediately throw the small piece away. I've heard of too many stories of dogs needed surgery because pieces of the bone get stuck in their throats. Another benefit is, the bones clean his teeth.

Not only are they not safe, they gave my dog the nasty runs.
