Q: Dear Dr. BBQ,
My Irish setter, Seth, always tries to steal ribs off my plate at the picnic table. Is it OK to let him have some?
A: Hello Dolly,
No! Seth should never eat ribs, with or without the bones or meat. First off the bones can break up and become slivers that can choke him, or create bowel problems for him. At best he will be overcome by this rich food and either throw up or do a number 2 for you to clean up. Please just feed him dog food, those vets know what”s best for him to live a long and happy life.
