Do any of you remember when you could go to the grocery store and ask the butcher for bones for your dog? You still can ask, but they definitely are not free any more. Just another thing in our changing society.

|That Will Be $5.00 Please on Feb 02, 2016 @ 10:26 am|
At the store where I work they charge $3.00 for small bones and $6.00 for large bone which are very big. We sell lots people love buying them for their dogs.

Now that society is so health conscious, a lot of people are making there own stock like they used to before everything was in a convenient packages. Supply and demand just the way chicken used to be a cheap meat and now is one of the more expensive ones.

I didn't even know you could ask for bones! I'm going to look into that for my pups.

The reason they started charging, at least in my area, is because restaurant owners were asking for bones in order to make beef/chicken stock. The butcher I go to told me they are in very high demand, so I can see why they would start charging because otherwise, they could consider it a loss for their business. I still think it would have been better just giving them away but if you think about it, it's like using any other part of the animal which you would have to pay for regularly.

I stay clear of giving my dog animal bones because they could puncture their organs as they swallow the pieces they break off. I buy him raw hide bones instead.

Not bone related, but you can make your own vegetable stock from peels and discards from your vegetables. Just wash everything carefully and pop in a plastic bag in your freezer until it's time to make stock. You can use everything but potatoes (they are just starch and no flavour) and some fruits (though not too much as it'll change the flavour) and it's a great way to use the peel and top and tail pieces of vegetables.
You can still compost them afterwards for those who are extra green!

You are absolutely right, this is a risk! Especially with chicken bones, vets advise not to feed your cats and dogs chicken bones for this reason.
