In many ancient medical practices they advocate someone eat the part of the animal that they are having problems with. In your case I guess that would mean you should eat bones according to that POV. Better get chomping.

If they smell anything let less than appetizing, toss them...dogs' stomachs can handle older meat than ours, so that's an option.
