Raw bones of any kind are fine, as long as they are not real small. Its cooked bones that will splinter. I have been researching raw diets for about four months now and am considering switching. All the store bought smoked bones, rawhides etc that I have gotten in the past have caused problems. So far, actual raw bones have not been the first problem not to mention they get calcium as well.

Yes I've heard the the big raw bones are ok for dogs as well. As for Calcium being a plus, I'm not so sure of that, you still need a source of phosphorus and vitamin D for it to actually work on bone building, if one ingredient is missing it goes straight through *you know what I mean*

I think we can all agree though, that supervision is the key if we are going to give our dogs any kind of chewable.

I'm just talking about a treat, not as part of a whole raw diet.

Thats why I have been researching this for some time. So far, I know muscle meat, organ meat is a must being that it is so full of nutrients, and calcium,usually in the form of ground bone and whole bones. But like you said, it all has to be balanced out and as of now, I don't feel like I am sure of all the "balancing" the nutrition to make it approprate. So, until then, its raw for treats only! lol.

I don't give my dog with natural bones but instead I give her toy bone which has teeth and gum cleaning abilities. I think local pet stores sell this product.
In caring for your dog, give it the best dog diet and dog food recipes from your heart.

Any non weight bearing bones are fine, as long as they are not cooked. Cooking is where the problems come in. Mine eat chicken quarters as a regular part of their diet.
