Giving your gordon a big beef bone is great for their teeth and they will love you for it. But, never, ever, give them a chicken bone, or pork bone. Both of these splinter when broken and can stick in your dogs throat or intestines, and possibly kill him. There are plenty of alternatives, to these bones. Plastic nylon and rawhide are available in stores in all shapes and sizes. You can also visit your butcher and ask for some big beef bones. Fido will love you for it!
