    Default CHEW BONES

    What kinds of bones are ok to give Rebel? we gave him a bone i believe it was half of a ham bone we bought from D&B , it was pretty big, but he started grinding down one side of it and crumbling it and then he would kinda cough and choke a little bit so i took it away, is it normal for it to crumble like that, it scared me because he was swallowing it and i dont know if it will hurt his stomach

    @REBELBABY I wouldnt give bones that are cooked they can break down and shards of bones can get stuck in your babies throat. The best types of bones to give is a raw femur bone 3" or bigger -img_0675-jpg-img_0679-jpg-img_0677-jpg
    You can ask your butcher to cut it down for you then freeze. This can keep them busy for a while working at getting the marrow out and gnawing on the bone (helps clean teeth). I also wouldnt buy the smoked bones for dogs at pet store too messy and again I dont trust they will not breakdown into shards. Also after they are finished getting the marrow you can stuff the bone with peanut butter, banana ect and freeze.

    The only other bone I would let him eat is a nylabone.

    The only bone type things I give Raven are deer antlers or the heavy duty nylabones. The rest of the stuff can splinter and cause issues.

    Dudley LOVES his antlers and his Nylabone. He is particularly fond of the antlers that are strung on the rope -- his absolute favorite. They are expensive by they last for months and months...and keep him occupied!

    I will pm you the place that I get mine from. I get huge ones and the pricing is great. Another member on here had shared it with me via PM. I ordered some solid foot long ones that are probably three inches in diameter and paid way cheaper than what what they were asking for split ones that were probably a third of the size locally. Check your pm for the website.

    I am scared of split antlers but I am in love with whole antlers.

    We love beef femur bones raw from the butcher the dogs eat the marrow out and we restuff and freeze. Which is a trick I learned here on EBN. Here is a picture from 2BullyMamma

    The only thing we give our bullies to chew are Nylabones and Kong hard rubber toys, and that's it.

    The only bones Vegas gets it a big thick deer antler, he has had the same one for almost 2 years now. He also loves his Kong hard rubber toy.

    I agree with everyone above... Nylabones, whole antlers, and the femur bones. The femur bones are also called "soup bones" and you can sometimes find them already frozen in the grocery stores. They are perfect! However, I would highly recommend giving it to your bullie outside, because the marrow does get messy. Afterwards, you can restuff them and refreeze them with goodies. Good luck!
