Just that really. I've a large lamb shoulder bone and I'm wondering if it's ok to give to him to chew or if it's like cooked chicken bone - a big no no

I think it's a big no no.

We gave our dog one last weekend and he loved itgrin

No, it could splinter in his throat. A raw one would be fine.

We've just given our lamb bone to the cats. It still had a lot to chew on it.

They looked appalled and stalked off. They are so spoiled though I guess they were expecting a napkin a plate and a glass of wine.

Good point about cooked bones splintering though, so probably for the best.

Have told the dog MN says No! He is rather disappointed

One of our dogs died from a bone splinter in his throat. I was only a young teenager at the time but never forget the horror of it. The bone was from the butchers and it was for his birthday. I would never risk it.

I always understood that raw bones (of the right size and shape) were OK but never cooked bones
sorry for the link but this explains 'bone' feeding and its dangers very well
