Chewies/Bones?

Hello all!!

Tillie has really learned how to tear her rawhide bones apart and I KNOW they can cause harm to her... so, can anyone give me some ideas of GOOD chewies, that don't have a color OR a smell? We have beige carpets and my nose is very sensitive to smells! Is this impossible to find!??

Thanks!!

Hi, there is a white bone that looks like plastic I can't remember the name. My kids don't like it but maybe Tillie will. We use pig hoofs but it does have a bit of a smell. We also like baby carrots.

I think the white plastic bone is called Nylabone.

Piper likes the Antlerz brand deer antlers. (for some reason that's the only brand she likes, what a snob. lol!) I got them from the havanese rescue store. www.havtohavit.com which was an added bonus.

I use lamb ears. I'm also sensitive to smells, and they don't bother me at all. If you pick one up and sniff it, it will have a slight odor, but when the dog chews it I never notice anything. They are also healthier than pigs ears, and most don't have coloring added.

Interesting... Lamb ears? I wonder where I can get those??
I tried a few different kinds of the Nylabone when Tillie was younger and she didn't seem interested... also, regarding "dental bones" which are the best kind??

NONE!!! That's what caused Kodi's impaction. They say the've changed the formula so that theya re more digestible now, but if the dog bites off too big a pice, it can get stuck. The ER at Tufts told me that "dental chews" are the #1 cause of food related obstructions that they see. We were just very lucky that Kodi eventually passed the piece he had bitten off.

He's doing great, but is still on his meds to give his gut time to heal. The scary point will be when I have to take him off them!

Our vet recommended CET Chews. I got them from 800petmeds and have been happy with them. You can get the large size if you want her to chew for days or get small ones they can knock off in 20-30 minutes.

I don't think they have any intestinal blockage issues that Greenies have.
