    DefaultMarrow bones and worms.....

    I was just told by a lady at my butcher shop that if you do not trash marrow bones with in 24 hrs. it will cause worms. Anyone ever hear of this??

    I always refreeze them if there is anything left. My guys are on Inteceptor which takes care of intestinal parasites. We use marrow bones weekly and have not had a problem.

    Sounds like an old wives tale to me.

    I have had old marrow bones lying out in the back yard for anything up to a fornight. I only chuck them out when the dogs lose interest. No case of worms yet.

    I agree - we keep 'em for ages - once cleaned of marrow. If marrow is still in the bone, and the dog is done with it - I refreeze for at least 24 hours - and then they can have it back. No worms here either!

    My back yard looks like an archealogical dig, frankly. I'm waiting for the neighbours to call the cops on me actually, there's so many bones out there.

    I wouldn't worry about it.
