Is it safe to give a 5 month old pup raw beef shank or femur bones to chew on? If so are the cut up femur bones (soup bones) safe for them?

It is my understanding they are too hard on their teeth. un cooked Pork bones, raw chicken feet, these are good sources of bone. No chicken necks or backs but any other raw bone is ok.

The weight bearing bones (like a femur) have a great risk of cracking teeth, but are reasonably safe. Sometimes the marrow in those bones can give a dog diarrhea. I personally prefer to give raw knuckle bones. They are softer and less likely to injure teeth.
