That depends on whether the bone bothers you or not. It won't hurt Rod any, there are old bones in the yard that the dogs drag around for weeks. As long as they stay out there we leave them, as soon as they try to bring them in they hit the trash.

Xanny's are here forever, she gets most of the gross stuff the first day. On the other hand, they will spoil if you leave them in the fridge. Go figure.

If it starts to attract flies then rinse it out, until then let it be.

and not to hijack your thread but this is kinda related. we had a butcher at our BBQ on sunday and he brought pork bones...they were about 2 inches wide and about the size of a pancake...he put them in a tin on the grill for just a few minutes before he gave them to jack. i told him i didnt think that was neccesary cause they might spliter but he said since they were pig bones they wouldnt? :huh?: he didnt have much interest in them and i threw them out already cause i was unsure. would they have kept ok too? and should he not have cooked them for a few minutes?

sorry damien...if you think its a hijack i'll edit it out :oops:

I let them have the bones until they start cracking them and the edges get sharp. Pookie, the semi-toothless wonder still has jaws of steel and can eat most of one up,

Xanny often has a little goo in the center for a few days, even a week. No spoilage, though I don't know why.
Pork bones are bad, raw pork can carry trichinosis, and cooked bones are bad.

Pork bones are baaaaaaad. (so are sheep lol)

Raw and you and your dog can get worms, cooked and they shatter. The smoked pig we did at the farm had bones so brittle that I could splinter them with my hands.

Stick with beef bones, and though some people have had good luck with them, be careful with rib bones, they can splinter because they are so thin walled.

some people say pork is ok?
what is trichonosis?

Pork is only bad if it's from a source where you can get trichanosis (a parasite). Here in BC, our pork is CLEAN (I know most of the major pig farmers - it's one family mainly)!!! My doggies love pork, although it is high in fat. Once in a while they get pigs feet as a treat. Ham is always bad though, as it's high in salt, and the smoke "cooks" the meat so that the bone is brittle.

And NEVER feed any kind of cooked bone.

When we could get bones (before BSE) I used to bag them and stick them in the freezer overnight..kills off all the germies!!!

One thing I don't understand in regards to trichinosis is, why does freezing pork for 3 weeks at -10 kill the bug but it won't in bear or walrus?? It's the same parasite??? Regardless, I have far more fear of trichinosis than bse. I won't feed cooked pork let alone raw. Or any pork product for that matter.
