As a dog owner, we love rewarding our fur babies with treats and bones to chew on. Unfortunately — this practice could end up with horrific consequences, especially when it comes to marrow bones.
Thankfully — the Wasson Memorial Veterinary Clinic has provided us with information about this danger. After all — knowledge is always the best power and we always want to keep our dogs healthy and safe.
The problem with marrow bones is that the hole in the middle is a perfect place for a dog’s little lower jaw to slip through. Then — as their fangs hold it into place, the bone becomes soft and then the result is that they cannot remove it from their mouths and jaw.
