    DefaultBones

    I have heard that is not a good idea give knuckel bones to dogs as they can cause intestinal issues..any thoughts?
    Thanks for your input.

    the smoked ones? IF so...I don't give any smoked bones. I only give raw fresh from the butcher bones...and usually I only get the shanks/femurs. Having said that, if you are giving for the first time the raw ones, you do have to be careful because they are rich...so i wouldn't let them have it for long. Raw bones and deer antlers are the only chew things that my boys get. Rawhides, smoked bones .....big no no here...I'd have dogs with explosive diareaha if I did that.

    Same advice here as Dani gave...I only give my girls raw marrow bones, frozen. No knuckle bones, nothing smoked or cooked, no rawhides. Just long (5-6 inches) frozen marrow bones from the local butcher shop.

    Ditto that, and my boys also get the Souper size and Galileo hard Nylabones, the largest ones they make.

    I give Puff raw beef knuckle bones. They're sawed in half to make them a bit smaller. I'd tried the marrow bones long ago but she wouldn't chew on them which defeated my purpose of giving them to her. The only problem I've had with the knuckle bones is that she sometimes breaks off a piece but I take it away from her before she swallows it.
