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.

Myth #2 – Bones are dangerous for my dog
Escalating vet costs for our mutts, pups, nobles and masters have many pet parents, guardians and slaves considering medical insurance for their fur kids. Fortunately, we now have choice available to us that offer a range of different insurance options, from basic policies to comprehensive coverage. This means that you can now choose one that suites your budget and lifestyle.
The downfall of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago gave mammals an incredible opening, and they ran for it, rapidly becoming the dominant land vertebrates. Among those to emerge were the earliest carnivorans (members of the order Carnivora), whose living representatives include the cats and closely allied families, such as hyenas and mongooses, as well as dogs and closely allied families, such as bears, weasels, and seals.
Like their huumans, cats and dogs have their own fooding behaviors. When observed closely, you will notice small differences between mutts, pups, masters and nobles. Some research indicate that these differences start right from the food selection step, when the bowl is offered. The whole food selection routine requires organoleptic attributes of the food such as odor, taste, and texture.
