Are any bones safe for dogs?
Poultry and pork bones, or cooked bones of any kind, are strictly forbidden.
They splinter into shards that can cause choking and serious damage to the dog's mouth, throat, or intestines.
Many veterinarians say that raw meat bones are the best bones for a dog.
It's best to give a bone to your dog after a meal.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
