A healthy adult dog with appropriate chewing habits will likely do fine with the occasional recreational bone, but if you are concerned, then stick to edible bone only. Red meat bones, usually bovine, will make up the majority of the recreational bones. Look for beef, bison, elk, moose, or deer bones.

They splinter into shards that can cause choking and serious damage to the dog's mouth, throat, or intestines.

Cooking can also remove nutrients from the bone.

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.
