Remember back in the day when the family pet was fed leftovers from the family dinner? Whether it was a chicken carcass or leftover lamb roast, the four-legged member of the family was considered a garbage disposal of sorts. Well, we have since learned that some of these table scraps can make out pets very sick. Cooked bones, for example are a bad idea when it comes to our pets. While raw bones for dogs helps maintain dental health, when you cook bones, they become softer and can cause havoc in the gastrointestinal tract.
