Truth or Myth #4: It’s OK to feed your dog table scraps

Many bones splinter into pieces causing serious problems…such as chicken bones.  Bones which shatter can possibly perforate the stomach or intestines…or can clog or inflame the rectum.  Knuckle bones, properly prepared, can help keep the teeth clean.  (Cook beef soup bones in boiling water with a sprinkle of salt for 1 to 1-1/2 hours…make it 2 if there’s lots of gristle)  Note:  I did not cover any aspect of feeding dogs in this book.  When you get your pup your veterinarian will provide a booklet on general health, shots, and feeding.  I happen to be a believer in a good dry food…I leave scraps on the table…and please do not allow your dog to beg, eat from your fork, or lick the plate while you are having dinner…especially if you have invited friends over.  Suspecting that you’ve done the same with their fork and plate, they may never return.  Woof!
