Is it okay to feed dogs bones?

You might think this question would have a simple answer, but it's a little complicated. If you are going to feed your dog raw food, then yes, raw beef bones are an excellent part of that particular diet, as they are soft and easily chewed. Dogs can also eat raw chicken bones, which only become brittle and dangerous when they are cooked. Do not feed raw bones except as part of a raw food regimen.

Avoid feeding your dog any cooked poultry, beef, lamb or pork bones, especially ribs. These could either chip your pet's teeth, or cause serious intestinal problems, or even death, if ripped apart and swallowed. Do not feed fish bones of any kind.
