Default Bones?

Can I give my 6 month old Chi a ham bone? There is no meat on it...just the bone.

Cooked bones are a NO to me. They can splinter and are dangerous. I would never feed cooked bones to my chi.

Raw bones, on the other hand, are excellent for oral health and enjoyment. I choose non-weight baring bones because they are less likely to crack teeth, but that's a personal choice.

Agreed - Raw, non weight-baring bones are fine, but never ever cooked bones.
