    DefaultHow is this bone?

    I just picked one of these up for Chuck and she is loving it. Has anyone given this to their dogs? How long did it last you? I really hope this isn't a one day bone as it was 10$.

    I think a dog here got the runs from it.
    Zoe used to get something similar, but in the knuckle bone style. She cracked a molar.

    I won't buy anything Merrick. I have seen to many items recalled and SO many of their stuff come in my store with MOLD on them. NOPE! I stick with redbarn (femur bones or bully sticks) or natural raw bones from the butcher.

    Man! It looks like I am 0 for 3... Raw hides, frisbee, and now this bone! (Which I got from a "gourmet" pet store btw) I do plaon getting her bones from the butcher, but this was what I hoped would be a temporary solution.

    I get pizzle/bully sticks from here

    it's pure protein...a bit pricey, but I let her chew for about 5 - 10 minutes after the beach. it lasts about a week or so. Some people let them chew in one sitting. I think that's a bit much.

    sometimes they have free shipping.

    I go to the butcher and get soup bones. Costs less than $2 each. I have read mixed things on cooking vs raw.
    Currently I bake them before feeding to my little girl.
    What is the consensus here? Cooked or Raw?

    I used to get them for Ernie every now and then as a treat. Most people here buy them. Not exactly the same as ours are made in N.Z. for dogs and told they weren't the same as cooked bones. Erns loved them.
    As Linda says they are rich so they get the runs so I took it off him after a half hour or hour, and let him have it the next day. Doing this it lasted a week.

    ETA. These are also some of the ones I gave him. He can't have bones now as he has Crohns and can't eat meat.

    He was caught trying to eat it inside.

    Only raw marrow bones from the butcher here.
    NO knuckle bones...a dog on the other board swallowed one WHOLE.
    I freeze them so they last longer. The girls love them frozen.
    NEVER cook them.....bones splinter so much easier when they are cooked.
