Bones for Dogs?

Post by Bodie the Dog » Tue Jan 02, 2018 7:27 pm

If you spend enough time in the back country, you find dead things. I like to bring cattle bones home for my dogs (mostly Labs), but am wondering if this is a bad idea. I avoid the really dry ones, because they like a bit of hide, but also avoid the new ones because, well, you know. Any experts on the subject out there?

What about donkey bones? I see more donkey bones than cattle bones when I'm out hiking in the Northern Mojave / Death Valley area. Of course, during the summer I hike a lot in the southern Sierras and there I'll see cattle bones every now and then. Either way they could be disease ridden or not. Who knows?

So long as you boil and dry them appropriately!
