I too give my dogs beef bones. My rule of thumb is if the dog can close it's mouth over the bone, the bone is too small. Raw bones have several benefits, imo. I don't hesitate to give mine some good raw meaty beef bones.

I used to give my dog marrow bones all the time until I saw this documentary called Food inc which talks about Lead levels and how they are so bad for bones and from the lead in drinking water settles in the bones of the animals, so giving my boy a bone could effect him due to the lead in them. I still give him some every few months, he LOVES them, but I stopped giving them all the time after I heard that... If I new the bones were from organic cows I would not hesitate, just scares me to think of all the stuff they give animals I stopped eating everything but organic USA grown, why shouldn't my pup, lol. ;

As long as the bones are not cooked you should be ok.

I have been doing some research, and am actually thing about a totally Raw diet for my hounds. You only have to feed them about 2-4% of their body weight depending on metabolism, and it is even healthy to fast you dogs and only feed em about 4 times a week once they are properly adjusted to the raw diet.

I feed RAW everything to my dogs. Bones are a great calcium source.
Raw Meaty Bone (RMB) is the main part of the diet. You must feed the bones with the meat because that is where the calcium is.

Here is a list of RMB you can feed:


  • Chicken (any part)
  • Turkey (any part)
  • Game hens (feed whole)
  • Duck (any part)
  • Pheasant (any part)
  • Quail (feed whole)
  • Rabbit (any part, but it's best to remove the stomach and intestines of wild rabbits due to the risk of parasites)
  • Ostrich and emu necks, ribs, and knuckles
  • Pork necks, ribs, shoulders, and tails
  • Lamb necks, ribs, and breasts
  • Oxtails


Raw Muscle Organs should consist of about 10% of your dog's diet. These meats are

  • Livers
  • Kidneys
  • Hearts
  • Gizzards
  • Tripe
These organs can come from chicken, turkey, lamb, or beef. I usually feed chicken/turkey livers and gizzards and beef heart and kidney as well as tripe.

This is what I personally feed:

(MEATS = PROTEIN)
- Chicken "thighs & legs& quarters" w/ bone
- Beef organs "heart, liver, tripe, and kidney"
- Salmon & Tuna
- Goat with organs and bone- ground up
- Whole rabbit carcass with fur- ground up

Ha my dogs have eaten whole rabbits, chickens, and large birds and they love it! AB they digest it and what they can't gets pooped out. Some dogs leave the skin and others eat it. I go to the butcher and for $6 bucks I get a huge bag of leg bones and knuckles. YUM! lol
