Aisha is 3 months old and my husband seems to think it's fine to start giving her t-bones. We gave her one last night and I watched her like a hawk. She seemed to do fine and reduced it quite quickly. I know chicken bones are a no-no but what do you guys think? There are 3 more waiting for her. They have been bbq'd should I freeze the rest or just leave them in the fridge for her. I know the raw bones that you get at the butcher should be boiled before giving them to the dogs. Is she still too little?
If the bones are cooked you need to pull the meat off and just give her the meat. If you are giving the meat to her raw any bone is okay and that includes chicken. Oscar loves to eat raw chicken backs. Never give cooked chicken bones becuse they splinter. Raw beef bones are very hard to eat but pork isn't. Just remember that no cooked bone is safe but raw bones are.
We (my husband) gave our redbone coonhound a T-bone after it had been grilled. She ate almost all of and spent the whole night vomiting bone. The bone can tear their intestines and esophagus causing internal bleeding. No more T-bones!
Really? I never would of thought. You would think it would be the reverse, seeing as they go bad quick when they are left outside. I think i'd better throw those other bones away before my husband gets home from work.
I once had a dog that was gentle and loving until she was given a bone, then she turned into a bone guarding nut. Once I stopped the bones, she went back to normal. I guess they were just so good, she couldn't handle it.
You never cook the bones! Cooking them makes them brittle and they can splinter and lodge in the dogs throat.. I've given raw chicken necks, but have not heard of giving other parts of chicken. Was told they were already brittle. Never give pork bones. We have 6 week old standard poodle puppies that have already been given raw thigh bone (meat left on). They love it!
