In the shop there is much discussion regarding what is appropriate and safe to give your dog as a chew. We don’t believe that there is a black and white answer to this one but thought it would be handy to provide a guide to some of the most discussed items we provide in the shop and their pros and cons to allow our customers to make a balanced and informed choice about what they give to their dogs.
With regards bones (including sterilised marrow bones and filled hooves)..
To Chews: Uncooked bones are often requested at the shop. Raw meaty bones are regarded as the safest option (and sometimes the local butcher may be accommodating enough to help you out for free). Many dog owners who regularly give uncooked bones give glowing reports of how well they clean their dogs teeth. Those that are advocates of feeding bones also argue that there is a risk of choking from any toy or treat and that it is all about choosing an appropriate size and supervising carefully and removing when it becomes small enough to swallow whole.
Not to Chews: Whatever you decide about bones we say NEVER give your dog cooked / roast bones. These become brittle and splinter very easily and there are many more reports of injury as a result of cooked bones than any other.
For raw/ suitably air dried bones then you need to weigh up the pros with the risk of choking, obstruction or blockage should your dog manage to chew a larger piece off the bone and try to swallow it whole. If you are feeding uncooked bones we would ALWAYS recommend supervising your dog carefully. The harder bones such as the sterilised marrowbones carry a greater risk of tooth fractures due to their dense nature.
