Well Haley's first marrow bone landed her in the emergency room cause I just gave it to her marrow and all. I honestly had no idea what I did wrong. After posting about the incident I was told to scrape some of the marrow out because it was so rich and it likely gave her garbage gut. After a couple of months I've worked up the nerve to try it again cause boy did she enjoy it like nothing else I've seen her enjoy. I cut most of the meat off and scraped out all the marrow..and I mean all of it. Wish us luck I don't make her sick again. I am going to die if I make her that sick again. There is nothing on the market she enjoys more than the marrow bones. I've tried it all so I'm hoping I did right this time. She's so happy right now she wagging her tail as she chews it in almost delight. Wish us luck and please post if I missed doing something other than what I've already done.
Sounds like a good second try! I love watching Maxi with hers. She gets this dreamy look on her face while she's working away at it.
Where do you get them?
LabMommyKathryn I get them at Publix. I just ask the guy at the meat counter to cut some larger than the ones they already have out. They are dirt cheap. I got four of them about 6 inches long and only paid $5.14. The money I've spent on trying to find something she like doesn't pale in comparison to this. They were frozen when I got them so I put one in the refrigerator over night to soften the marrow so I could get it out.
Mel - she does look dreamy and it is fun to watch them enjoy something sooo much!
awesome! I might have to make my mommy get me some. Better yet Aaron works for a meat cutter during hunting season here!
There you go! BUT..let me highly recommend if this is your first time please cut off most of the meat and scrape the marrow out. What we went through with Haley was scary and expensive.Originally Posted by LabMommyKathryn
Now that she's done I wonder if I should pick it up or leave it out. She left some stuff still on it and wonder if its safe to leave it be?
Good luck! My girls LOVE their marrow bones!

Thanks for the advice. I will see if he can get me some!
Grace and Hudler love them. Maddy won't touch them. Once they get used to the marrow, you can give them whole again...just give it a few weeks to let their system get used to it.
We put the bones in the freezer and give them out totally frozen. Makes the treat last longer.
If she loses interest in it before it's finished, wrap it and stick it back in the freezer! (It's raw and it WILL go bad if left out!) I save those half done re-frozen ones until the new fresh ones are all gone.Originally Posted by HaleyJo03
