Many who love dogs give their pets marrow bones to chew on. They naturally believe that marrow bones are safe. However, one look at the picture below demonstrates why I do not recommend them. When the dog is chewing out the center, it is easy for the bone to pass over the lower canine teeth and get stuck around the dog’s jaw. Most dogs need to be sedated in order to remove the bone. This dog made a full recovery once the bone was removed but after the veterinary bill, that became one very expensive treat!
