BONES: To Feed or Not To Feed

I have hear a million times now, "Are bones ok to feed?" or "I thought bones were dangerous to feed". RAW Bones are a dogs natural dietary need. Dogs have no way of cooking their food/bones, so COOKED bones have the potential of blockage or ripping/tearing your dog...NEVER FEED COOKED BONES. Hopefully this article will answer some of your FAQ about bones......



Most people know almost instinctively that dogs love bones.

Dogs eat them, fight over them, bury them and dig them up later , when they’re

all rotten and smelly... Despite knowing this, many dog owners are reluctant to

feed bones or they feed the wrong kind of bones.

Many people believe bones are dangerous, but in reality, bones are a major part

of a dog’s nutritional needs. As a matter of fact they are the most important part

and dogs that don’t get the joy of a good raw bone are suffering health problems

at all stages of life.

To make things worse, stores sell all kinds of FAKE bones, which are dangerous

and have killed many dogs. The fake bones include: Giant COOKED femur

bones, Rawhide sticks(NEVER, NEVER, NEVER feed rawhide bones), plastic

bones, dental bones, rubber bones...everything but what is actually GOOD for

your dog!


Are Bones Dangerous?

  • ONLY if they are COOKED! Dogs are not designed to digest cooked bones.

  • Cooked bones are harder, more brittle and more splintery than raw bones. They are the ones most likely to be caught in the mouth, to pierce the intestines, to set like concrete in the large bowel.

  • DO NOT EVER FEED COOKED BONES TO YOUR DOG.

  • RAW Bones Are Completely Different!

  • Raw bones are soft, pliable and digestible by the dog.

What About Chicken Bones?

  •  Raw chicken on the bone is without a doubt the very best form in which to feed

  • your dog most of it’s bone nutritional requirements.

  •  NEVER feed your dog cooked chicken bones. COOKED chicken bones will

  • splinter and hurt your dog.

  • Raw chicken bones have the best essential fatty acid content of all animal bones.

  • They are beautifully balanced with respect to their bone to flesh ratio.

  • Wings and necks are good for puppies, plenty of bone for their bones.

  • The wings are a rich source of bone marrow and rich in iron.

  • Why Are Cooked Bones Bad?

  •  Besides what has already been mentioned(the bones turn hard, brittle, splinter

  • and get caught in the intestines). Cooked bones are nutritionally void and they

  • have been denatured, the whole chemical composition has been changed. They

  • are no better than unnatural processed kibble foods. The protein is very low

  • quality and they have lost most all of the fat, fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins, the

  • marrow is lost as well as the minerals. The most important change is that the

  • calcium in the bone chemically combines with other minerals making them

  • unavailable. Cooking the bone changes the way your dogs body assimilates the

  • calcium in the bone, it behaves like any other ARTIFICIAL source of calcium,

  • resulting in problems relating to excessive intake of calcium, cause growth and

  • bone problems in dogs.
