I just bought marrow bones for the first time.* I went to the butcher and they had a bag for $0.99 per lb.* It looks like there's five or six in the bag, about 5 or six inches long each.* It weighed 5 lbs.* They are frozen.* I asked if they were marrow bones or knuckle bones, and the butcher said they are from the shoulder area or femur, so they do have a knuckle in that area.* I hope I have the right thing.
I am planning to give them to them frozen, out on the patio.* Only for 15 minutes or so at first so their tummies don't get upset.* Then back in the freezer.* Is that right?* How do I know when the bone needs to go in the trash?

If your dogs have sensitive digestions, giving them the bones for a set period of time is probably best.
My own dogs have had raw bones since they were pups so for us it has never been an issue.
You can put the bone in the trash whenver they are done with it...usually they get bored of them after the meat and marrow is all gone.
I just posted this in another thread.....
I think so! Ours are sold around here as soup bones.
Henery gets his frozen, outside. The marrow is really rich, so just beware the soft poops that will come.
I'm paranoid about things, so Henery gets his marrow bone, then it's back in the freezer, and he probably gets it once more after that, and then that's it. I suppose you could always dishwasher the bone and use it to hold stuff like peanut butter or frozen other things, like a Kong kinda?
Will the bone be hollow when the marrow is gone?
Sam has a pretty sensitive stomach and nothing fazes Bodie.

Yes, the bones will be hollow when they get all of the marrow out of the middle.
Yes. You can even save the hollow bone and re-stuff it with something if you like. Of course, you probably DON'T want to do this because raw bones start to smell after a while.*Will the bone be hollow when the marrow is gone?Gah...thats nothing. I should I have taken pictures of the monster bones they got last Christmas. They were so huge it looked like a cow had be slaughtered in my yard!!edited to add: wow, Trickster, that is a BONE!
