Dogs and bones

dog-boneYour dog’s love for bones can be traced back to their wild predatory instincts. You think that you are doing your dog a favor when you’re in the supermarket and ask the man at the meat counter for a nice juicy bone for your dog.  Remember, just as milk is always not good for cats, bones aren’t always good for dogs. Small bones such as pork chops or chicken wings can fracture and get lodged in your dog’s throat.  Large bones such are leg bones are better because a dog can’t swallow them. Even these bigger bones are not  that great for your dog since they can be hard and fracture his teeth.  The best policy is to ban bones entirely. Try giving your dog a biscuit or a dental chew toy instead.
