veal shank

I've never given Gryff a bone before, but my husband had veal for dinner and there was a nice bone left over so we brought it home. I don't think I've ever seen Gryff more elated in his whole life! He is one happy bone chewer!

I love the feeling that I get at the point when he's huffing and puffing and I think, "Oh, my gosh, he's being a DOG."

I hope it was raw!

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

Daniel, Unless Ivy's husband eats raw lamb.. lol.. I'm assuming it was cooked. Not necessarily a good thing.

Conversely, why does Merrick have a line of cooked bones for dogs? hmmmm ??

I know that in some of the Merrick canned there's a chicken bone that's been pressure cooked. You can mash it with a fork. The first time I saw one, I thought it was a mistake and tossed it.

There was still meat on the bone, but you can't gnaw on a bone in a restaurant. Gryff ate what meat was left and chewed on the bone a bit until I heard the bone splinter and I had to take it away from him so he wouldn't get hurt.

Why would you give a raw bone as opposed to a cooked one?

Ivy, Raw bones do not splinter like cooked bones do.

That's why I was asking about if it was raw as I was concerned you were feeding a cooked bone. Cooked bones are very dangerous and should always be avoided.

I didn't know that. I don't give him bones. I was watching him like a hawk with it yesterday. So, people give dogs raw bones with meat still attached? Sorry, but I don't want that on my carpet! I don't want cooked meat on my carpet either, actually.

I feed Lola raw, so she gets raw bones, too. A few days a week she will get a chicken back, turkey neck or beef neck bone for one meal. She has a big towel that we put down for her to eat on. When that towel comes out she starts happy dance that is priceless to watch. She hasn't figured out that sometimes the big towel means bath time!

Ivy, the calcium in raw bones is good for them. And chewing on them cleans their teeth. They grind the bones with their back teeth. Well, until Lola, the little miss piggy, swallows them whole. But the cooked ones will splinter and you know that is trouble.
