FDA to Fido: Dog Bones Not Safe
Broken Teeth, Internal Injuries, Even Death Among Risks Posed by Dog Bones
Stamper says dog owners should talk to their veterinarians about
alternatives to dog bones. Many bone-like products are made with materials that
are safe for dogs to chew, she says.
“Always supervise your dog with any chew product, especially one your dog
hasn’t had before,” Stamper says. “And always, if your dog ‘just isn’t acting
right,’ call your veterinarian right away.”
