My reading says that raw bones are both safe and good for dogs, especially for keeping teeth clean. I prefer to give my dog a bone to spending time brushing his teeth, thank you very much.
Beef leg bones were available at the market last week*, so I got one for Chico. He’s not usually much for bones bigger than his head, but every day or so, he takes a stab at it.
And yes, that is another bone right next to him. I’m not sure where it was hidden, but suddenly he had two.
And, yes, I guess I do let him do that on my nice living room rug. Oh well, it’s just stuff, and he’s my dog.
* I just about haunt that corner of the meat cases where they sell extra parts of animals, looking for bones and ingredients for homemade treats.
