What kind of real bones are safe to give to a puppy. Was always told to never give dogs chicken bones because they can choke on them. So, we gave our 13 week old puppy a spare rib bone and we think he ate the entire thing in about a half hour. Is this even possible, and how dangerous is it? We called the vet and he said he would most likely digest it, but I want to know if anyone else has had this experience and/or knows what is safe and what is not. Thanks!
