    Default Bones That Dogs Can Eat All of

    While I was at the vets last week, we asked about feeding Boof, in the way of amounts, brands, etc and also about bones. He said he was a big believer in giving dogs bones that they ate the whole lot of, not just left them around the yard, bones like the Brisket and ribs (rather than the leg bones) which are a bit softer and the dog can eat the entire bone.

    Whats others oppinions on this?

    Our guys (not Mia yet) get brisket bones, chook carcasses etc about once a week. Great for their teeth, and they get to feel like real dogs I sware by it. Mia only gets chicken wings at the moment... I think her lil tummy would explode if she tried to eat a whole brisket or carcass!! lol

    Same as GoodiesGirl - brisket bones, chicken carcasses for the biggies and wings for everyone. I usually feed bones daily. Avoid those huge marrow bones as some dogs can chip their teeth on them. Naturally all bones must be raw. Never feed cooked bones.

    Our boys used to get chicken necks, but they don't anymore, vet said it was contributing to their weight gain. So now they get marrow bones, which are also good for their teeth, but are packed full or nutrients and vitamins. They love them, and get around 3-4 a week. Since then, they have lost some weight, and are looking nice and fit and healthy

    I don't feed marrow bones to my guys, for the simple fact that they CAN crack or chip their teeth on them.

    Sorry, I meant to say marrow flavoured bones, so they are like a biscuit. We don't feed our boys real bones unless they come straight from our butcher friend. On occassion, our butcher mate will have a bag full of raw bones to give our boys.

    Same here, Brisket bone or chicken carcass daily. Leo gets a big marrow bone now on Sundays too for a bit of entertainment... Although i do worry he will crack/chip his teeth (Happened to someone we know), but he loves them and spends him time stripping any meat/fat off, not so much chewing the bone as i get them BIG and MEATY so he isnt really able to get his mouth around it but still has a good chew...

    You will be amazed at the bones that they can actually eat. Mine had some sheep heads recently (gruesome I know - but they go in the bin after a farm kill and it's such a waste!) and all that was left after a week was the base of the horns and stumpy well chewed horns, the very heaviest part.

    I have big dogs though, but dogs have impressive jaw power, and bones are good for their insides as well as their teeth and gums.
