Cooking of bones makes them more brittle, increasing the likelihood of them splintering and causing internal
injury to your dog. Most of the time the cooking process will also remove the nutrients contained in bones.
The risks of giving your dog cooked bones:
- Broken teeth
- Mouth or tongue injuries
- Bone gets looped around your dogs bottom jaw
- Cooked Bones get stuck in esophagus
- Cooked Bones get stuck in windpipe
- Cooked Bones splinter in throat, stomach or intestine
- Constipation due to bone fragments
- Peritonitis, this nasty difficult to treat bacterial infection of the abdomen is caused when bone fragments poke holes in your dogs stomach or intestines caused by cooked bones.
