Bully stick alternative
I give Lola a bully stick to chew during her daily brushing. I've been doing this since she was 12 weeks and can't really get a good brushing in without it. I use the curly type from Petco [made in the USA], I think some people call them flossies. Lately Lola has been chewing them much faster and seems to swallow more of them, I think its been making her stool a little loose. I've tried the Merrick brand flossies which seem thicker, but their smell makes me gag & I can't take it. I try to pick out the thickest ones so they will be harder to chew through, but even though she's tiny at 8 lbs, I think her teeth and bite have grown stronger. DH was on brush duty when I was out of town this weekend, he said she swallowed a big chunk of the end and then threw it up a few minutes later. Does anyone have any recommendations for a bone/bully stick/flossie that I could use while I brush her that will last longer, she can't swallow chunks of and doesn't smell completely disgusting?
