    Personally I' never give a knuckle bone of any kind (whether raw or cooked) as it could break the enamel on the teeth.

    I wouldn't give any cooked bone as they become brittle and splinter.

    Hope this helps a little :)

    ^^^^ This :)

    Just to reiterate, never give a cooked bone to a dog or a cat. As Tanya said, they become brittle with cooking. Raw bones, unless they are weigh-bearing are fine.
