Number one, this is a dog. Not a child. If he came across a bone in the yard, he would chew it, so would any other normal dog. There is a process in place called natural selection, I am a great fan and allow this process every opportunity to function as nature designed. That being said...
All vets do not agree on this subject.
They sell pork bones at Petco. Think they have a legal department?
Dogs break bones to get at the marrow inside, not to eat the bone. They can handle a sliver every now and then. I eat beef bone all the time in ground beef, had my gum cut, had a tooth chipped. Guess humans shouldn't eat ground beef.
