Been searching for safe chews this is pretty much what our holistic vet was saying, to avoid fractured teeth. Of course problem still is finding a chew that fits the criteria and one your dog likes to chew. Sophie doesnt really care too much for the nylabone flexichews...
You want to be able to indent the surface with your finger nail. Surface has some “give” to it.
“Knee Cap Rule”: If you hit your self in the knee with the object and it hurts, it’s probably too hard/heavy for your dog.
“Hammer Rule”: If you can drive a nail with the product, don’t allow your dog to chew on it.
Also avoid objects with abrasive surfaces like Tennis Balls and Frisbees.
If you cannot flex or break the product with your bare hands, it’s probably best to avoid it.
Please take note: you should always monitor your pet when they are chewing on anything. Verify they’re not gagging, trying to ingest too much at one time or attempting to eat an inedible product.
