Is it ok to give a baby back rib bone??

Maybe this is a dumb question, but when I was growing up, we scraped our supper plates, including ANY bones onto one plate then dumped it out for my beloved Chow mix Ming to enjoy. Then, when my mom and stepdad got their JR Terrier, my stepdad always said not to give him any bones.

But then I read on here about people giving dogs raw meat with bones! Soo... I brought home some delicious grilled BBQ baby back ribs and wondered if I could give Charlie just the bone to eat (after I wash the spices and BBQ sauce off). I think if I did, Charlie might nominate me for doggie-momma of the year!! hehehe

THANKS!!

I wouldn't... rib bones splinter too bad. I would be afraid of the splinters getting stuck in Charlie's throat.

Nope. No cooked bones for dogs. They get very brittle when cooked and when they break they are very sharp.

Okay, THANK YOU!! I knew I should check here first! Poor Charlie will just have to be happy with his hollowed out beef bone... I'll put a little PB in there for him.

One of my best friends from vet school shutters every time she sees me feed my dogs (raw). I shutter every time I watch her bring rib bones home from the resturant to give her dogs! I'm firmly in the no cooked bones camp!

Awww that's too bad your vet friend doesn't approve of raw! I'm lucky, my vet is not opposed to feeding raw. She actually said that if she felt she could balance a raw diet for her dogs she would feed raw herself. I feel really lucky to have a supportive vet.

Actually she's come a long way. She's now mostly only anti-raw when the owner has no clue what they are doing.

As others have said, never ever ever give cooked bones to a dog!

Now, if you were to throw a raw rib bone down for him (covered in meat of course ) I'm sure you'd have a big fan
