  • Beef femurs include variable amounts of meat, connective tissue, and generous amounts of marrow (fat).

Recreational raw bonesprovide minimal nutritional value to your pet's diet. However, the advantages of offering your pet these marrow bones as a natural chew are numerous.

While offering recreational bones to your pet comes with numerous health benefits, it's crucial to be aware of potential risks. Understanding and implementing best practices for managing these risks will help you choose the safest bone options for your pet.

How to Choose the Safest Raw Bones for Your Pet:

  • Know your pet’s history and chew style before offering bones. Take the RDBK bone quizfor a list of recommended bone options based on your pet’s size and chew style.
  • Always choose a bone larger than your pet’s mouth capacity.
  • Do not give recreational bones to aggressive chewers or gulpers.
  • If you are uncertain if bones are right for your pet, please reach out to our education team, a holistic nutritionist or a raw-supportive veterinarian. 

Know the Potential Risks of Feeding Raw Bones to Your Pet:

  • Bone chewing may pose a risk to any pet, particularly for those with dental issues and/or gastrointestinal concerns/disease or those on low-fat diets.
  • Bone chewing may cause tooth fractures and/or GI upsets.
  • Feeding frozen bones increases the risk of choking, GI upset and tooth fractures.
  • Not intended for human consumption.

Guidelines for Safely Feeding Raw Bones to Your Pet:

  • Always supervise your pet and remove the bone immediately if concerns arise.
  • DO NOT serve on an empty stomach when your pet is hungry.  This may increase the risk of gulping.
  • DO NOT COOK - NEVER FEED COOKED BONES
  • Keep frozen until ready to serve. 
  • Thaw bones completely in the fridge before serving (usually 6-12 hours in the fridge). 
  • Refrigerate uneaten bones for up to 3 days. Discard bones after 1 hour if not in the fridge.
  • Do not allow your pet to chew the bone down to pieces that can be swallowed.
  • Remove and discard when one or all of the following apply:
    • The majority of the meat, connective tissue and marrow have been consumed

    • Your pet reaches the brittle part of the bone

    • If cracks or splinters are noted

  • Wash hands and all surfaces with warm, soapy water after handling.
