Default Examples of bones you should NOT give ....

This post goes along with the one yesterday showing examples of meaty bones that are OK for our dogs.

Here are examples of bones that we should NOT give.

These are the most common ones that people feed. Beef marrow bones. Why aren't they ok? Because they are cut leg bones from cattle. They are dense and rock hard. They also contain marrow (the white stuff in the middle) which can be OK in small amounts, but if a chi ate all of that marrow, they could have adverse effects. From diarrhea to pancreatitis. These bones can chip and crack/fracture teeth.



Sawed bones. These aren't good because they are very dense and they have been cut with a saw. These also don't have enough meat. The saw heats up when it cuts through bone and can change the composition of the raw bone. Avoid sawed bones. This includes t-bone steak bones and pork chop bones.



Pet store bones. Just because they sell them at a pet store for our dogs does NOT make them safe. These are bones you should NOT buy. They are smoked which means cooked! Cooked bones are rock hard. They splinter. They crack teeth. They can cause bowel obstructions. They can perforate the esophagus or stomach or intestines. They should NEVER be fed.

Here are some examples of bones you may find at a pet store.... DO NOT GIVE THESE.
