    Rupert can't have it anyway but in the bbq packs from the butcher you get pork ribs, I can't eat them, Mum is veggie etc so they will be destined for the bin otherwise.

    They are individual ribs designed to be cooked on a bbq. Are they a no go? I'm guessing if not a no go the dog shouldn't be trying to bust the bone up and should nibble off them?

    I don't ever give pork bones but I have given raw lamb bones and the dogs have eaten the whole thing after crushing them up with their teeth.

    You can get those roasted bones in pet food shops and some supermarkets but the last time we had one here, it was intended for the big pyrenean that we had but one of the lhasas got hold of it and he'd only had it 2 mins and was already splintered up and in bits :eek: needless to say it all went in the bin and I've not bought one since.

    They're fine, but I'd advise freezing them for up to a week to kill off any nasties. :)

    Do you just let them nibble the meaty bits off, they aren't meant to eat the bone are they? :)

    I agree with this although I freeze mine for 3 weeks before giving them to Chester. He loves them

    I've always stayed away from pork bones, I don't know why, but will give them a try now. mine love the lamb breast with the ribs in.

    mine have them quite regularly as Tesco do them quite cheaply in a whole rack. Meat and bones all go - they love them
