  1. Yes as long as it's beef and beef only. The reason for this is chicken and pork bones are thin enough that they will splinter as your dog chews and it will tear up their esophagus and stomach on its way down. Beef bones are thick enough not to splinter and are therefore far safer for your dog. I hope this helps.

    DO NOT give your dog poultry bones. Raw is good.

    Should be. I give them to my 7 month old Standard Schnauzer. I just make sure that the bone is bigger than the back of his throat. I don't want him to swallow it & get it stuck in odd places! I tried giving mine one of those huge joint bones & it took me 3 days to figure out where the smell was coming from. The flies had laid their eggs inside the fatty tissue & the maggots were hatching! I had to snatch it from him as he napped. Raw bones are good for teeth & gums. Cooked bones can shatter when the dog chews on them.

  4. You should never give cooked bones to dogs

    Raw is fine but not cooked

  5. as long as its raw

    mine gets them all the time
