When your dog chews on a raw recreational bone, especially a meaty one with soft tissue still attached, his teeth get the equivalent of a good brushing and flossing. This helps to break down tartar and reduces the risk of gum disease.
Recreational bones are NOT to be completely consumed and should always be fed under your supervision.

Ease your dog into raw marrow bones gradually. If he's never had raw meat or marrow bones before, the richness of the marrow can cause tummy upset. Take 3-4 days to slowly get your dog used to this higher fat treat. Only let him chew on the bone for 10-15 minutes at a time, then pop it back in the freezer.
Tips for feeding raw bones:
- ALWAYS supervise dogs when you've given them raw bones.
- Never cook raw bones; cooked bones splinter and are dangerous.
- Marrow is very rich and fatty. It can add lots of calories to your pet's diet, and should be avoided if your pet is overweight or has pancreatitis. Offer raw bones no more than twice per week. If your pet is battling a weight problem or needs a low fat diet, simply scoop out some (or all) of the marrow with a spoon first.
- Raw bones are sold frozen. When they thaw and your dog chews on them, they can get pretty messy. Give your dog bones outside, in a crate, or on a tile floor - anywhere clean-up is easy. Definitely don't feed raw bones on carpet!
- Bigger is better when it comes to bones. Your dog should never be able to put the entire bone in his mouth. Bones that are too small can be choking hazards and cause significant damage to your dog's teeth. If your dog breaks off pieces of raw bone, toss it out.
- Dogs that are aggressive chewers can chip or fracture their teeth on raw bones.
