|Glad the dogs in this thread that have encountered cooked ham bones made it through ok!
Petstores and grocery stores carry shrink wrapped bones that are safe for dogs. I always look at the packaging for preservative info, most chemical preservatives are a no-go in my household, but tocopherols (chemical compounds with vit E activity) are fine.
Make sure you do keep an eye on your pup though, especially after he's done with the bone. I relaxed my standards once a few months ago and bought a few bones from a dollar store without checking the label at all, and it landed us at the vet's office for an enema. The vet recommended that I mix in 2Tblsp canola oil and 1/3 cup natural/organic pumpkin (not the pie filling) with some of his food to help lubricate things and assist the smooth passing of anything not passed by the enema. So if you're worried that Loki might have problems you could give him something like that before the bone...
