Please give me your opinion of these? Thank you.
I only feed raw bones. I would be afraid that these would splinter or break off chunks. There is so such thing as “natural liquid smoke.” Smoke is not a liquid. I’ve read that smoked flavoring is a cancer causing agent. I’d pass.
Thank you BCDogFoodieMember
I wouldn’t feed them either. I don’t feed bones that aren’t raw and I thought that smoking was akin to cooking anyway.
You’re better off offering something like these lamb trotter bones from MPC:
Ok so, new question –
There is an Amish Marketplace here in town, most everything is home made, and I mean everything!
They have a meat dept where we get all of our chicken, lamb chops, pork steaks, bacon, etc. So, I’m going to ask if I can buy some bones for my dogs.
What should I ask for? I’ve never purchased raw bones before.
Don’t get any leg bones from larger ruminants. After that, what kind of dog do you have again?
I have a lab/shepard mix – about 40-50 lbs, and a JRT, about 26 lbs and on a diet.
OK, I have Border Collies, 45#, and a JRT, 12#. For ribs, you can get lamb and pork ribs from the butcher. I also get beef short ribs or calf ribs, but they aren’t for the JRT. I have my butcher cut up turkey necks. Any chicken parts, turkey wings and backs. If they have goat, you can get goat ribs too. Neck bones from pork, lamb, goat, and calves are really good.
Really, the only bones you should absolutely not use are weight bearing bones from larger animals.
