    My dogs love knuckle bones from the butcher - I let them chew for a bit then put them back in the freezer.

    Keep in mind. plaque and then tartar form for one reason only, starches in the dog's mouth. Once it is removed it will not reform if the food you use is low in starch, so switch to a high protein, high fat food and the situation will improve dramatically.

    I use the heavy knuckle bones sold in the feed store and have had no problems with splintering but I buy the big heavy ones that have been cut off where the bone is heavy. My dogs love em. Buy those 3 or 4 times a year and they keep their teeth pearly white
    I think they were all made to shoot because if they were not why did they give them that whirr of wings that moves you suddenly more than any love of country . . . I think that they were made to shoot and some of us were made to shoot them and if that is not so well, never say we did not tell you that we liked it.

    Been looking for these raw knuckle bones but can't find any.
    Tried Walmart, Piggly Wiggly, IGA, and local supermarket. Some butchers don't even know what they are!!


    Can I get some help in locating them. I'm in NW Fla above Ft. Walton Beach.

    Appreciate any help.

    Happy Fourth to this great nation.

    Some pet stores carry frozen raw knuckle bones but I mostly resort to smoked available from Chewys or Amazon now. The trainer puts them in the truck
