Default Raw Beef Rib Bones

Okay, silly question here...

I found some Beef rib bones on sale at the grocery store and picked some up for Bosley as a treat. He eats the raw marrow bones all the time but I'm so worried about him breaking a canine or chipping a tooth with them.

With the rib bones, he's not supposed to eat the actual bone is he? lol I ask this because I know he's going to try and eat the entire thing...(he manages to break off peices of the marrow bone so it wouldn't surprise me if he did the same with the rib bones)

They are rather meaty but there is most definetely a bone in there...

Thanks

I'm pretty sure they eat it all.

I do believe that if it's raw then it's safe to eat

Val, I would remove the bone from him once he has gotten the meat off of it. Typically all Beef bones are to hard for them to eat. My guys are seasoned Raw eaters and they will try to eat part of a rib bone but usually not all of it.

Yeah that's what I thought. Bosley has had some raw so he knows how to chew up the bones..but I'll take it away when he's done with the meat.

Thanks Kari

Ah yes, that is good to know!

Question - those big hollow stuffed bones you can get at the pet store - they're beef bones right? They must be because they're huge. We have a couple that we would stuff with peanut butter for Duke and he actually managed to knaw off the end of one but I did notice that they are very hard or obviously he would eat the whole thing. So the worry is that they might break a tooth?

Those ones are actually cooked. You should try and stay away from them :S

With those (before I was enlightened by joining this forum) I found that whatever spice or 'flavour' they put on them when they cooked them would give Bos the runs. After someone on here told me to just give him the raw bones I've never looked back. But yes, the fear would be breaking a tooth.....

Really? They're cooked? They don't look cooked... anyhow, thankfully we only gave them to him for a short time.

He LOVES bully sticks but they smell so bad! We found dehydrated beef tendon that he really likes and it doesn't smell as bad as the bully sticks. Is that ok to give him?

Oh yeah, that's fine.

Do you have a Global Pet Food store near you? They have great treats! I can get bully sticks, dehydrated beef tendon, dehydrated chicken and duck feet. Dehydrated liver and beef or lamb tripe. It's an awesome store! Needless to say, Bosley is very spoiled.
