-Sterile bones are a great alternative to rawhide bones (rawhide can be consumed quickly).
-Sterile bones are easy to clean.
-Sterile bones are not meant for aggressive chewers. If they chew the actual bone it may result in broken teeth and/or ingesting bone splinters.
-If filled with greasy treats, the grease can get onto furniture or carpet, and the dog may go back and chew them at a later time.
-If the bone is dropped on hard surface, it may crack and need to be thrown out.
-Unless the bone is stuffed with flavor, the dog may not show any interest since the natural flavors of the bone have been removed during the cooking process.
