1. Meat scraps

Even the most meticulous butchers will struggle to remove all of the little fragments of meat off a bone. The effort is well worth it for your dog, as is the reward of a few little bits of fresh meat.

2. Bone marrow

Bone marrow is the equivalent of a Snickers bar in the dog world. Because bone marrow is heavy in fat, it is prized for its flavor and nutritional value. For malnourished animals, eating bone marrow can mean the difference between life and death. Bone marrow isn’t the only part of the bone that tastes good. Fat, which acts as a glue to hold minerals like calcium and phosphorus together, can be found in the boney structure.
