No Bones About It: Keeping Dog's Away From Bones

Dogs enjoy chewing on bones and burying them in the backyard, but dogs and their owners will not like what can happen after.

Your canine's teeth might seem impressive, but many dogs break or chip teeth while gnawing on bones. The bone can also slice a dog's mouth or jaw. However, the real danger comes when dogs swallow the pieces of bones. Bones can choke a dog or tear at the stomach.

Whether you eat ribs or just have a small wishbone, avoid feeding bones to your dog. Any complication that arises will likely result in pain for your dog and a large hospital bill for you.
