    Meat Bones

    Is anyone giving meat bones---steak, pork chop, chicken legs--- to their dogs?

    Just wondering if it's safe to do it with my 3 month old beagle. figured it would be good for his teething stage.

    My beagle mix is on a raw meat diet (40% raw meat/raw bones, 40% slightly cooked veggies and 20% overcooked grains) and I give him raw meaty bones all the time. I started him on this diet when he was 6 months with the help of a homeopathic vet. I'm not sure if I'd give him too much at such a young age without first asking a vet...because going from puppy food to his diet took a several weeks of slow modifications to his diet until his system could handle the raw meat/meaty bones. But if you are talking about occasionally giving him a raw bone as a treat I don't think it would hurt.

    Please do not give chicken bones, they are too soft. I think an occasional bone is great....esp for teeth.

    I used to give meat bones to my dogs but then they recommended against it. There's too much chance of bones and such, and it's not worth it to risk that.

    Too many bones can cause impactions in the stomach, as they cannot be digested properly An occasional bone is usually ok.

    ...and all along I had this "brilliant" idea that giving bones to our dogs will help make their teeth strong...but I am guilty of giving bones to my pet however I only give bones of the leg (pork or beef NOT chicken). the dog is unable to swallow these bones and I assume they use it to sharpen their fangs =D

    my dog gets bones every time we eat meat with bones in it, but never chicken bones. one got stuck in my lab's throat and we had to take him to the vet. it had punctured his windpipe too.

    we live out in the country and he eats small animals anyway, like small rabbits and stuff that happen to cross our front or back pastures. surely bones wont hurt a dog at all because they were born to be predators and use their jaws to crunch bones anyway. right?

    yeah I totally agree with you there, I also give my dogs some bones but only those non-sharp ones that they cannot swallow whole

    This is one of the reasons why they say not to let the dog be unattended when chewing the bones.
