Would you feed this:
He is begging for that T-bone! I feed Chucky only raw food, so he is accustomed to eating raw meat with bones every day. But I was cautioned to never give your dog a bone that had been cooked. I do not give him any cooked bones from a roasted chicken, bone-in ham or a stewed chicken for example. But what about a large steak bone that probably only made it to room temperature? Is a light sear considered cooked? I ate this T-bone steak extremely rare, just seared on the outside, cool and very red center.
Don't feed your dog cooked bones. They splinter easily. Feed bones raw. A T-bone, btw, is a tough bone for a dog to get through anyway. He could gnaw it some but he may not eat it. That's a tough bone. Ribs are easier for them to break up.
That being said, the bone in your pick doesn't look too cooked so he may fare just fine on it.
As a rule, feed bones raw only.
A quick googleage and I came across this article.
Here is a quote:
Raw bones, not cooked bones. Never feed your dog cooked bones, because the cooking process greatly complicates digestion of the bone. There's a far greater chance of bowel obstruction when the bone is cooked. Raw bones, still with a layer of meat on the bone but with as little fat as possible, are a safer choice for a dog treat. Dogs can handle raw meat bacteria better than humans, though there is still a chance of minor illness. If you don't want to risk bacterial illness, the only advisable cooking method for homemade dog bones is boiling.
I've fed many a cooked T-bone to my dogs in the past. I have never heard that it was a bad thing and have never seen any ill effects from doing it. I cant speak from a scientific standpoint, but anecdotaly I see no issue from it.
I give my dog steak bones and the cartilage tips of my oxtails, but she got ill (constipated) when I gave her a stewbone. I have even started giving her the chine bone in my pork chops (since the USDA said it's ok for us peons to eat medium-rare pork). I would never give a slow-cooked bone to the dog. most of the bones I give her end up "chewies" anyway.
