I reserve those kinds of bones (I call them meaty bones) for the rarest of occasions - like for after spay when they can't exercise much and you need to keep them occupied somehow when the energy is building up in them, or when I first broke my foot and couldn't yet get around well on the boot. The reason they are a huge treat to me is because of the additional fat and calories. They can definitely be a godsend, and my dog LOVES them, but all that greasy, messy, yumminess can't possibly be that good for their health. I imagine there is a lot of sodium in the flavouring on them, too.
