    I would never give any bone to any dog sorry , Bones splinter , those splinters are swallowed and hang up in everything , digestive system , stomach , bowels ect ect , also do not give raw hide chewies as they choke on them not fun .
    Nyla ( spelling maybe there ) bones are good , all sorts of GRAIN free soft treats out there try those

    Raw marrow bones from the butcher are great for dogs... Excellent source of nutrients,

    DO NOT COOK THEM... Cooked bones do splinter and cause internal issues, but raw are good and given when supervised. I have given these to all my bullies... 10 plus years and never an issue

    Thanks - I never have and would never give raw hide to any of my dogs those things should be banned she has lots of nyla bones but with them being hard I always worry about her teeth, I just want to get her something that she could chew on where I don't have to worry about her teeth or anything splintering

    I was told turkey necks are okay to give as is or in quarters (not cooked) and that it is good for mental stimulation and oral hygiene...but I am a novice at this, so no experience...just what I heard and read.

    We started to notice red spots on Bass' nyla bone and had to check his gums for bleeding. One thing I forgot to mention, the man at the butcher shop told me yesterday that his brother does Raw for his french bulldog because of allergy issues and gave me a list of items to request when I'm ready to start...it was TURKEY: necks, gizzards, hearts CHICKEN: Case of necks BEEF: marrow bones, beef hearts, beef liver.
    Not sure if that helps at all, but I agree, the Nylabones may be a little too rough sometimes on the gums?!

    DITTO here… it's been a great treat for Wallygator and I put peanut butter in them to freeze them when he's picked them clean. I would NOT give this to any dog unsupervised of course...

    Oh my god, I need to take a pic next time I get the Dinosaur (bone marrow) bones from Fairway. They cut them out of the meat for me because the ones they sell for soups are small.
    It's quite the show watching my two gnaw at them. They can go at it for hours.


    @Laurie I stopped using nylabones over a year ago for that very reason. Blue always cut his gums on them eventually. The edges get rough. Many here just file them down and they're as good as new. I just don't have the patience for it.

    Are the bone marrow bones from the pet store ok to give? I've been wanting to give one to Bowser but didn't know if I should because he's only about 5 months old.

    I buy soup bones and make my Bullys bone marrow broth. It is something I had started when Shiner had gotten sick because it is supposed to be good for them. I add parsley, once it cooked. You use distilled water, preferably beef knuckle bones, and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. For any meat or marrow cooked out of the bone, I add it to the broth. I pour this over their food nightly, and mix in a tablespoon of yogurt. They love it!

    Do you make up one big batch a week then freeze/thaw or cook nightly?

    I make a chicken based bone broth when any of my girls are ill or feel a cold/flu coming on...but never gave it to the Bass...
    I may try your recipe in the near future. Fall is coming on and I <3 cooking in the fall
