Can Dogs Eat Ham Bones?

Answer

There are two arguments regarding dogs and cooked bones. One argument is that the bone can kill the dog through splinters, obstructed bowels, etc. The other argument is that chewing the bone cleans the teeth, works the jaw muscle and discourages the dog from chewing non-food items like shoes. A rawhide bone is a great alternative but ultimately it is your decision whether or not to give a dog a ham bone.
