I have been given my boy beef bones to chew on so that his teeth will keep clean. How long should I let him have a bone before I throw it out. I don't want him to get food poisoning from some dirty old bone.
He is over 5 months old and can get through a chook frame fairly quickly. I was told that dogs should have bones that require a fair bit of gnawing to effectively clean their teeth. This is why I have changed up from the much softer chicken bones. I will still give him chicken frames for the big dose of calcium. I don't like giving him lamb bones because he gets diarohhea from them.
At the moment he has a long bone (something from the leg of the cow). He has had it for over 2 days now and has picked it clean, but the bone is still whole. I don't think his jaws are strong enough to break the bone yet. Should I throw it out now, or let him at it a little longer?
