|I'd back Sabrina on this. Dogs can choke on bones, but dogs can also choke on kibble or aspirate their kibble. All bones should be fed in a raw state and with the meat on the bone, the more meat the better. I've actually spoken with some people at Cornell veterinary school, and most of them will tell you if a dog chokes on a bone, it's going to be a cooked bone (same goes for gastrointestinal problems resulting from cooked bone consumption).
Dogs can also choke on socks, rawhides, treats of any sort, tennis balls, ice cubes, kitty poop (ok, I am guessing on this one) you name it. Hey guys, come on...if our president can choke on a pretzel and has difficulty chewing and swallowing his food, it should be obvious we need to monitor our dogs, whatever they're eating. If only we expected as much from world leaders as we do from our dogs....
