My dog likes to chew and i did find that Raw hinds were helping with his teeth. I have been advised to give him bones to chew instead. I just wondered what anyone else thought about feeding bones and if cooked was better than raw.

Also when he has been chewing a bone there is sometimes some blood of which i guess if from his mouth somewhere, should he still have bones???
Raw bones are absolutly the best in cleaning teeth and gums. The bleeding is likely from gum inflamation due to lack of cleaning. The bones should ONLY be raw, not cooked, and not the weight bearing bones. Weight bearing bones are relly dense and can break teeth.

Dogs fed unnatural diets are predisposed to unatural outcomes

I was so scared, thanks God nothing happened....
No kidding! I have just a little guy, so I doubt he'd be able to bite through a bone. Regardless, watch him the whole time to be sure. I actually rarely give my dog any bones--for this reason.

chicken bones are fine as long as they are raw. cooked bones splinter into sharp pieces.
