    Default Mojo's 1st Bone.

    Thought i'd see how he goes with a nice big marrow bone hoping it would take his attention of my drawer handles, lounge, door stops, fish tank etc, etc.

    He loved it and chewed it for hours till he waltzed in and landed half in, half out of his bed and slept like a log for about a hour. Sorry about the small pics, click on em for bigger ones.

    When we done our puppy classes we were told but the vet nurse that we should not give our pups the marrow out of the bone as it can cause constipation, or it was the runs.
    She said that it has too much fat in it for them to handle.
    To be honest with you I don't know. I am just letting you know that this is what we were told.
    And if it is true then it is true. So just see how he goes after.
    I hope it is just them doing their best to get us to buy their food.
    The boss has just walked in and said it is constibation.

    Cheers Rid for the heads up.
    I had no idea. I'll keep a eye on him.
    Maybe i can scrape the marrow out as he loved the other bits aswell.
    Thanks again.

    Interesting point about bones and constipation. If i feed Jack too many bones he does get a little constipated(even at 6yrs old). I always assumed it was the actual bone, interesting to hear the marrow theory. For you little one sean, maybe just give him the marrow bones whole, he won't have the jaw strength to get to too much marrow for a while yet, but he'll know doubt love trying.

    I should go look for the first whole marrow bone i fed jack, he was 7 or 8 weeks old, funny watching the little devil carry a bone bigger than himself around the yard.

    ps such a cute dog sean, can't wait to see more photos of him growing up

    I have always fed my dog bones very regularly and they never seem to get constipated. It's good to keep an eye on it of course, but maybe it really depends on the dog too. And my dogs weren't tiny puppies when I got them. I did help raise a litter of pups once and wWe gave them bones from a very young age too. I cannot remember any issues, but it's always possible that I didn't pay enough attention back then.
