What happens if a dog eats a lamb bone? Bones usually are digested in the stomach but they may form gastro-intestinal obstruction or cause constipation. If Dolbie starts to vomit, strain to pass faeces, is passing stools with blood or not passing any stools at all for longer than 24hrs, you will have to take him to your local vets right away.
Do lamb bones splinter? Like most meaty bones, raw is best. Cooked lamb bones are more brittle than raw bones, which means they can splinter and break much more easily. These splinters will be sharp, and can cause severe internal damage.
Is it safe to give dogs lamb leg bones? We would always advise against giving your dog any kind of bones. Lamb bones in particular can be really dangerous for your dog as, due to their size, pieces can be broken off when your dog is chewing, which can easily cause obstruction and damage to their gastrointestinal tract.
Which bones are safe for dogs? Raw bones are considered safer than home-cooked because they don’t splinter as easily. Raw bones like chicken, turkey, lamb, beef, or even oxtail can be safer bone options for your pet. Unlike home-cooked bones which are drained of their nutrients, raw bones can be a natural source of calcium and phosphorus.
