Dogs/drying bones for dogs


I was wondering how to dry bones for my dog because a fresh cooked bone he always seems to throw up later.


I'm afraid I'm not familiar with drying bones for dogs. We feed raw bones to our dogs. We never feed or recommend anyone feed cooked bones to dogs because cooking them releases the marrow out of them and they become splintery.

This obviously can be a hazard to dogs.

We do however sell some large bones that have been smoked. This light heating and smoking process keeps them pliable and safe for dogs.

You also have to be careful of giving too much marrow filled bones to dogs as the marrow is very rich and can cause upset stomachs.

So basically you can feed him raw bones, the way nature intended our dogs to have them and they are the best tooth brush or you may research how to slow smoke bones for dogs and see if that might work for you.

For us, it's safer and easier to just give them raw bones.

I hope this helps, let me know if I can do anything else for you.
