    @desertskybulldogs, does this also mean the "Dino Bone" from pet stores is bad for bulldogs?

    Oh dear, and that's gotta be hard because its your father-in-law. I think a lot of people think they're being kind or nice by sharing human food with a dog. Some people feel sorry for a dog who's begging, and our bullies have the saddest faces and eyes. A lot of people don't understand that many human foods are harmful or toxic to dogs, and that bones are dangerous. Lots of people also,don't understand how sensitive bulldogs are, and what we go through with their allergies, sensitivities, and other issues, or what we go through to keep them healthy, and what we spend on their vet bills. I think a lot of the older generation grew up with dogs who were mostly outside, didn't go to the vet, and were fed table scraps and leftovers, or what ever was left. This was normal in those days.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I've always been a bit sceptic about these smoked bones. They keep longer than fresh bones, but anyway they're processed and can splinter. Big bones like that fresh, are just fine for entertainment and they can't really get anything out of them except from the ends that are cartilage, not bone.

    If its a seven year battle then what you have been doing aint working. Your husband should have a heart to heart talk with his dad and tell him how much it bothers you and please don't do it again

    They advertise these bones that they don't splinter. Uhm... all bones - raw or cooked - has the potential to splinter. These dinosaur beef bones (that's what they call the weight bearing beef bones at the butcher), either raw or cooked, does not splinter as easy as chicken bones (even raw chicken bones), that is true. But the cooked/smoked dinosaur beef bones splinter more so than raw. They're not 100% non-splintering! A dog can process a splintered raw bone with relative safety than splintered cooked bone because its stomach acids can melt a raw bone much faster than cooked bone.

    But, when it comes to these recreational bones (weight bearing big animal bones raw or smoked) - it all depends on the dog. "Seasoned gnawers" are patient and would gnaw and gnaw and gnaw on the bone with patience and not attempt to rip through the bone. They can go at it for hours and get tired before they can rip through the bone and risk splinters and at the end of the day, you can just take the bone and throw it out.

    But, the bigger issue with these bones are the damage it can do to a dog's mouth if they're not "seasoned gnawers". There are dogs that are over-zealous when it comes to bones - especially those un-experienced in bone consumption - that if you are not paying attention, they will try to rip through the bone to get to the marrow regardless of the damage to their mouth. With these dogs unsupervised, you could potentially come home to a broken but unsplintered dinosaur bone but with the dog's mouth all bloody, ripped, and torn and with chipped teeth.

    Personally, my dogs are seasoned gnawers so they are okay with bones like these. But it is loads cheaper to go get a raw dinosaur bone from the butcher and they are much better for dogs than a Dino Bone so I don't bother with these smoked things.
