Keep seeing everyone says give your dog raw bones,does petsmart have anything like that???

I don't think Petsmart has them. They tend to concentrate on traditional commercial consumer products and not natural products. The best place to get them is at smaller pet shops that focus on natural diets (ie kibble made from natural igredients, raw and homeopathic foods and vitamins) or, as stated in other posts, directly from your butcher or grocery store. I buy soup bones, beef ribs, beef shank and lamb necks for Oliver. He loves it!! I also feed him raw chicken wings, chicken backs and chicken necks. He thinks he is a hunting hero - LOL!! :D

I have seen smoked bones at Pet Valu. They are wrapped in netting. This are also fine, but I prefer them from the butcher.

No,they don't carry the raw bones.As Michelle said,it's only the traditional ones.But I have bought the odd smoked ones.Have been for years.And they love them.

I also get the soup bones.And also the knuckle bones.And ham bones.But I boil them to get rid of all the salt.

Hunting hero......LMFAO

Yup, any meat counter at a grocery store would likely have soup bones. My friend and I took the dogs out for a walk today and she had to go get some groceries. So, I hang outside with the dogs. The butcher guy was outside on his break and when he went to go back in the store he wandered past Bob and Shadow. Very funny. I think he found his two new bestest buddies. Bob and Shadow were absolutely fascinated by the front of his butchers smock. Mmmmmmm, so many good meaty smells...... They were absolutely ravenous for the poor fellow. He thought it was a great laugh.
