Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My family is Vietnamese and we make Pho often. For anyone who isn't familiar its a beef broth soup made my stewing beef bones and knuckles. At the end of the pot there's always a bunch of beef bones at the bottom and I was just wondering if it would be safe if I cleaned these out/reboiled them and gave them to Elf to chew on. The bones are stewed with other random spices along with onions which I know is no bueno for doggies though.

Cooked bones are a no no. They'll splinter. Keep em raw, and avoid weight bearing bones, such as knuckles.

I've fed soup bones and knuckle bones raw, but would never feed them cooked. I wouldn't imagine the spices would be settling for their belly either.

My dogs always finish a bone in one round. I've never had to refreeze anything with the exception of a 3 foot marrow bone, haha. But you can wrap them up and refreeze them.
I feed weight bearing bones but you have to really keep an eye on them as if they're going to town too roughly on them, a chipped tooth is not an unlikely occurrence. My boy did get a very minor chip from a soup bone before.
