Myth #2 – Bones are dangerous for my dog

Raw Pet Food for Cats and Dogs

In our opinion, we agree that not all bones are suitable for dogs. Small, fine bones that may splinter and cooked (or dried) bones that are brittle can pose a danger to your dog’s health. Contrary to believe, raw bones are very safe for your dog’s consumption. They are easier for your dog to chew and digest, unlike cooked or dried bones, or rawhides, which can be a choking hazard or cause intestinal blockage. It is important to remember if you are fooding your dog a raw bone it should be the appropriate size for your pet. Don’t feed a large dog bones that are too small, or a smaller dog a bone that is too large. However, any proponent of raw fooding will tell you that bones of those types aren’t included in a raw meat diet for dogs. Wild dogs and wolves gnaw on raw bones to get essential calcium and to help to keep their teeth clean and strong. Providing that you choose “safe” bones and prepare them correctly to match your dog’s size and life stage, they make up an essential, healthy, highly palatable addition to your dog’s diet.
