PostSubject: Giving husky bones.    Wed Nov 26, 2014 5:13 pm

Hey everyone happy thanksgiving!

I need some advice on giving bones to my dog. So i want to start giving my 7 month old the bones of chicken everytime we have chicken for dinner.

And obviously tomorrow is thanksgiving and there are going to be alot of left over bones.

The reason why i want to do this is very simple and not because i want to gain anything 2 things;

One i want him be be busy chewing and playing with the bone and two its good for him to have a new taste in his mouth kind of like a treat.

I bought those huge bones from petco but they are kind of expensive and he goes threw them like its nothing.

Any negatives you guys can think of that will be bad if i give him a bone here or there or is it ok just like the petco bones???

Thanks guys!!

My girl has never tolerated packaged bones, something in the process or flavors they add give her runny stools. Please do not give any bone that is cooked, all types of cooked bones have potential to splinter and cause harm internally. Raw bones are very good, make sure your dog chews and does not try to swallow whole. My girl gets beef bones from the meat department at my local grocery store, she has about 3 or 4 a week. If you debone your chicken prior to cooking I would stick to the larger bones, i.e. thigh and drumstick bones. I know other people give raw neck bones, I just worry that the bones are too small and she will just swallow them rather than chew. Best of luck and Happy Thanksgiving

Poultry bones are horrible about splintering. Any cooked bone is capable of it but poultry I believe is the worst. If you have a ham bone to offer, I would go that route instead. Even uncooked poultry bones have a propensity to turn into little shards, so if you must definitely tend toward the thicker ones as Renee stated. Though with all the smells and other food around at Thanksgiving it is unlikely that a bone is going to occupy your pup for long if he is allowed loose during the meal. Crating him with a frozen kong will probably keep him occupied the longest.

Poultry bones can splinter their insides or break into sharp shards... please don't Sad Try looking into some great alternatives... Deer Antlers, Elf Antlers (split makes them softer, but always keep supervision) Most beef bones are okay, but always keep a close eye.

^^^ I agree a frozen stuffed KONG is key to keeping your doggie happy, and it is a nice Turkey Day treat.

Often times they are beef or pork bones. Usually smoked. Smoking a bone has a different moisture content for a bone than baking. The time and heat differences play into how dried out the bone becomes, ultimately making baked bones more likely to shard than a smoked bone and a raw bone is the least likely of all because no heat has zapped the pliability out of the bone.

Just please do not give your dog thanksgiving scraps that are bones. I hope you realize how serious that could be.

Any bones, poultry, beef, or pork, that are cooked can and usually will splinter.  That can result in a puncture in the digestive tract, which can be lethal.  Also, weight bearing bones can cause teeth to chip or fracture.  Same with antlers. Much safer to get a Kong and fill with cheese, peanut butter, or a treat.  

Raw chicken wings are usually safe, as wing bones uncooked are fery flexible and don't normally splinter.

Are you a troll? I'm seriously asking. People are giving you sound nutritional advice, not to mention warning you about a potentially fatal effect of giving your dog cooked bones, and since you've decided that you don't like the truth you are lashing out and claiming that you are going to give extra thigs that are harmful.

I really hope you're just doing this for kicks, and I truly hope you understand the dangers associated with bones and that you could kill your dog.

Furthermore, I'd like to direct you to the rules of this forum. Civil discussion and even disagreements are encouraged, but please refrain from being rude. You have decided that you don't like some of the things people are saying, despite having your dog's best interest in mind, and have resorted to personal attacks. We would love you to stick around and learn what you can, but keep it civil.

I think the person who wrote this originally didn't realize how this message would come across.  After reading it a time or two, I put a different twist on his writing ...

Well, we all have our preferences about giving a dog human food, but if it's once a year ...

This paragraph sounds odd, almost as if the poster isn't used to English.  I have to read it as "He can imagine all the bones, because he won't be getting any."

And on that note, I do wish you all a happy, filling and enjoyable Thanksgiving!
