Bones from stores? Answered

I bought some flavored bones for my dog at a store and found that they are pig bones.  She had blood in her stool (lots). I gave her peroxide and she threw up about 30 shards.  they were sharp enough to remove a sliver from your finger.  Never give you dog pork bones, EVER.  I don't know everywhere they are sold but I got mine at TSC  My dog is fine by the way.

our dog gets raw bones and meaty bones all the time- chicken legs and thighs, wings, backs, turkey necks, beef neck bones, ribs, fish heads, chicken feet- no problems- it is COOKED bones that are dangerous. Some times she ingests bone bits that are too large but she vomits them back up.

I learned at a very young age from my grandfathr that a dog should never get any hollow bones to start with.
That includes chicken in general but also pork beef leg, rib bones.

The only "good" round and hollow ones are those we use for soup, you know these massive ones with the big round eye...

But this all depends on the dog too.

Small breeds are quite happy with bigger round bones as they barely manage to get more than the remaining meat off them, while bigger dogs just crush them without chewing - resulting in razor sharp pieces cutting them everywhere.

I am glad you got the stuff out, although a vet would be better in such a case.

When they throw up the bones they can actually injure themself even further.

+1 Same advise we received from my grandfather (A doctor) and our veterinarian upon gaining our first pet, way back when I was a kid in the early 1970s.

It is cooking that makes bones brittle and breaks into vicious shards.

I have friends who fed dogs uncooked chicken with nary a problem.
