Maybe. Fatty foods like bone marrow should be consumed in moderation, especially for dogs with health concerns. Cooked bone marrow, in small amounts, can be served with a meal or as an occasional treat. However, dogs cannot eat cooked bones. If you want to serve it raw, and allow your dog to chew on the marrowbone, there are potential risks.
Symptoms to Look For
Dogs should only eat raw bones under supervision, on a surface that can easily be cleaned (like lino or tile). Watch for these symptoms, in case of infection or complications:
- Bloody stool
- Dental issues
