Lamb Femur Updated on: March 30th, 2019

Lamb femur is also known as the thighbone, and helps support the sheep’s weight. It is incredibly strong and can take a lot of impact.

why we feed

Dogs can easily break and eat raw meaty bones, however, lamb femurs are not included often in your dog’s raw diet because it is considered a recreational bone. When it is air-dried, it makes it easier for the dogs to break down and chew, which helps with dental healthy, redirection from chewing household items, and releases happy endorphins.

how to feed

Lamb femurs are great as recreational chews. They can be given in the crate or after a long training session or walk.

Additional info

Always supervise your dog while they are chewing, especially with recreational bones! Watch for any pieces that may be broken off while chewing, and toss them for safety :)
