Risks We Accept When Feeding Bones to Our Dogs

All bones – raw, air-dried, freeze-dried, dehydrated, smoked – pose a risk to dogs and if anyone tells you otherwise, theyre incorrect, in my opinion. We cant always anticipate how each dog will respond to a bone or chew.

Bones can crack/break teeth, puncture the esophagus or digestive tract, cause an impaction in the digestive tract, or cause our dogs to choke. The risk of these things happening is based on our individual dogs and on the bone/chew were feeding to our dogs. My point isnt to shame or blame anyone who has had a bad experience; instead, take this as a warning that there is a real risk despite what brands may say about their products. This is something raw feeders understand, but people who dont feed raw may not be aware of these risks.

I avoid the weight-bearing bones of large animals (the leg bones of cows, for example) because I think theyre too hard. A bone needs to be strong to support a 2,000-pound animal. But avoiding weight-bearing bones doesnt mean that our dogs wont crack a tooth. Antlers are also too hard for my dogs; they seem like a great idea for long chewing, but my dogs arent gnawing on them gently, theyre trying to devour them, chewing them harder to break them down which can end with a cracked tooth.

Of course, if a dog has poor dental health, then the risk of a broken or cracked tooth increases.

The Facts of Dehydrated Chicken Bones Dog Treats

Dehydrated treats like our Dehydrated Chicken Bones are dried rather than cooked. So they will break when chewed, rather than splinter like cooked, brittle bones. This makes them a safe, natural treat for dogs. In addition to their safety, long-lasting dehydrated bones offer entertainment to your dog as they work to chew it. This chewing also provides dental benefits, as the hard dehydrated bones help clean your dogs teeth.

Never Feed Heat-Treated Bones!

Yes! Dehydrated bones are a great option for dogs and cats. They can also be a great introduction to chewing fresh raw bones for some dogs. Dehydrated bones should be supervised when feeding. Gulping or swallowing without chewing properly is the biggest concern here. Always read and follow the label.

We do not recommend smoked bones. There are some reputable options available for consumers but most smoked bones contain nitrates (preservatives). Another big concern as well is that many smoked bones available in today’s pet food stores are made in China. Similarly to the jerky treat concerns from China, smoked bones are not something we would suggest offering regularly to your pet. If you do offer your pet a smoked treat, we suggest looking for a locally made or artisan smoked bone that would offer some guarantee that it is a high quality treat.
