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?

Susie, Moo Bully sticks are much thicker than the spiraled flossies, if you make sure you buy the ones that say 'odor free' they really do not smell. Check out
bullystickonline.com for good deals, especially if you buy in bulk. Another thing, is and not sure this would work for teeth cleaning. but you can get a little container and freeze yogurt or cream cheese and just offer it to her periodically during her session. The freezing will require her to lick and not get much but boy will she want it.
