I never tried them but I loved their commercial.

What's in them? I usually give my guys Twistix


They are wheat free and smell yummy! They have "Triple-action breath sweetening: peppermint, parsley, and chlorophyll" I don't get the chlorophyll, but the peppermint makes them smell real good! I wonder if they are similar?

My girls like them. I have small ones for Pixie and larger for Katie. They are not for puppies. I only give them a couple during the week, not daily as the package suggests.

I was given some samples and just gave one to Tinky this morning. She loves them, but gobbles them up pretty fast. They do say on the package to not give them to puppies or dogs under 10 pounds.

Why do you all limit them? Just curious. I'm always looking for new busy chews and dental chews for Kipling...

Sylvia, I'm not sure why others do it, but I limit my pups' intake of all chews because they are filled with calories! In fact, most chews have so many calories that they can close to (or overly) replace a whole meal. I'm sure that some people limit these types of treats because it gives their pups an upset stomach to eat too much of them, but the reason they get those upset tummies *is* because there are so many calories jampacked in those treats.
