  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I live in a finished basement without carpeting. They just painted the concrete floors and I have rugs everywhere. I read that puppies shouldnt run on hard surfaces for at least 2 years till their bones develop. I want to play with her down stairs, will this be a bad idea? I was thinking...

    Not really a question if my 2 year old pup is underweight... can't see her ribs. Was giving her back to butt rubs and noticed the 2 bones that is either the pelvis or the sacrum. The area on top between the back and the tail... Is this normal? Can you feel the bones on top of your golden's back?

    Bully sticks don't last as long anymore :( I heard raw marrow bones can be messy. Also several vets have told me with raw bones they had to deal with 1) chipped teeth and 2) small undigested pieces of the bone chips in the tummy I heard about hooves - any recommendations? Safe and digestible?

    I'm still on the fence about the raw diet since vets have told me problems with contamination and choking hazards with some bones. I can't help but be curious as it does sound good to follow what's in nature... bones! What is the safest bone for a 7 month old (or should i wait til she's an...

    Are these types of bones from the store safe (splintering..the way it's processed...sodium levels)? I thought they should be raw bones? American Meaty Shin Bone | Dog Bones

    What type of raw bones are safe for puppies to chew on (10 weeks)? I heard "marrow" bones might cause tooth damage...I don't even know what that looks like. Are the safe ones from cows, pigs, chickens....and which body part? :)

    Hi Everyone, I'm in desperate need of new chewing material for Max - who's relentlessly chewing everything in sight, including furniture, family & all stuffies. :) I saw Marrow Bones (Soup Bones?) at the store yesterday & considered getting them, but wasn't sure if they were safe for him...
