    QuestionAre butchers bones a good idea?

    hi, never sure whether these are a good thing for dogs or not? I know the right raw bones from a butcher are good for teeth and dogs love them but wasnt sure if it is a good thing or not ?

    if you mean raw marrow bones, yes.some dogs need some of the marrow scraped out as it is very rich. or give the bone for 15 minutes then refreeze for another time. never cook.

    We give marrow bones a few times a week, the dogs love them and they're great for entertaining and cleaning teeth!

    Yes the are good for them. Since our pups are teething and Bentley just quit teething they are very good for them to chew on. My uncle works for a butcher and he will sometimes bring deer legs (yuck). we also have a store neer buy that seels 30lb's of of them a bag for 1$ each. I get 4 every 2 months.

    I give my dogs frozen butcher bones, but limit the amount of time they get them! I refreeze them for future use.

    Both my boys get bones after each meal.

    Like Kelley said, great way to clean teeth and they enjoy them. I just make sure to take away the bones after they've cleaned out the meat.

    bones after each meal , may be too much, if you are referring to raw marrow bones. the marrow can wreck havoc and is too rich for 2x per day.
    unless i'm not understanding what kind of bones you are giving.

    I think Travis is probably giving the same bone after each meal for something to chew on....they may not be getting marrow 2x a day. But, even so, I think my dogs could handle a marrow bone once a day. But then again they are on a raw diet.

    oh, well that's not the impression i got. my dog's chew the same bone for the time till i give them a new one. (usually once a week) but for sure, they couldnt handle the marrow every day. rex would eat it but his stomach isnt the best.certainly coudnt handle the marrow 2x per day.
    and my boys are on raw half time.(chicken necks and gizzards)(maybe turkey necks once in a while.)
