    Just hope they don't have a bad effect on their tummies later! They have certainly worn them out, they are all fast asleep at the mo!! :thumbup::thumbup:

    cutekiaro1 --- I was like you before but am glad i have taken the plunge, i took them away yesterday after 40minutes and they all slept for hours after!!! I think all that chewing had tired them out! LOL They have all been fine today and have all been solid so they have got them again as i type!

    Raw bones are fine. Rupert has one a week from the butchers. Rib bones are best, but just keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't get it stuck.

    You sound like I did four days ago! :lol:

    Are they going onto the full raw diet? Mine are now on it, and loving it.

    More importantly - I'm no longer a nervous wreck!

    Good to see dogs eating real food and they look like they enjoyed it. As long as the dog has a large enough raw bone they won't choke on it and they don't splinter as easily as cooked bones. Just don't give them weight bearing bones from something like a cow and nothing like chicken necks and the dogs should be fine and love it.

    I used to always give my shepherds fresh bones.... albeit they usually had skitters the next day..... until Ninyo couldnt poo for days eventually my hubby heard the pop and out came a cork sized poo........ followed by the previous 3 days poos.......... No more bones from the butchers...... too much mess to clean up...... They do get plenty of our treats though so their not exactly missing out........ Pamx

    Too much bone can cause constipation it's only meant to be 10% of the diet and if they don't chew it right then yes sometimes fragments can go through and it's uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous for the dog. But that rarely happens I've never had that problem with Buster
