Raw Beef Bones
Ok, I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but I figured that it was about as good as any.
I was at the butcher shop last week. I asked the butcher for some "dog bones" as both Snickers and Snoops love chewing on the "Breakfast Ham Steak Bones". He said sure - and brought me out 6 pounds of cut up Frozen Raw Beef Feemer.
Both dogs loved the treat, and have been happily chewing these raw bones for days. (I still have 5.90 pounds if the freezer - I'm thinking my son's Golden Retriever is in for a really nice Christmas).
They both really really stink - like rancid (or at least a stale) butcher shop.
So I'm wondering - Are raw beef bones ok? Perhaps I should only let them chew on them for a day? (or two?) How does one counteract the stink? Are there better choices? I've done searches with the search function, but there is no "phrase" search option so it searches on "Beef" or "raw" or "bones" and won't answer the question(s) I just posed.
