Opinions...Red Barn Meat Filled Bones

Does anyone use these? Are they OK? I was looking at them tonight in the store and they look like real bones.

Kodi loves them, and I use them as an alternative to Kongs when he has to be shut up for a long time if I'm out of the house. (He eats Kongs, even the black "for strong jaws" type, for breakfast ;-) They ARE real bones and seem pretty indestructible. I suppose there is some danger of them breaking teeth if they chew hard on the bone, but even though Kodi tears Kongs apart, he doesn't seem to chew the bones much... more licks at the inside. In any case, I'll take my chances on his teeth. He needs something to occupy him, and I'm SURE swallowing pieces of Kong would be dangerous!

I get the large ones, because our little guys can't get to the stuff all the way in the middle without help. That way I can push a little of it down for him to reach, and he works on it for a LONG time. You can also re-stuff them with other things later.

I've used the Meaty one and Gizmo loved it. I would caution against the one that has more of a Jelly consistency inside it (those made Gizmo sick)

I was up all night with her after she had one.

P.S. - The one you posted looks like the Jelly type one. There is one that has more of a meat look to it.

Lily loves them. When they are empty I refill them with seed or nut butter. There is one that Lily coughed while she was eating forget what flavor.

I bought Ruffles one tonight. I wasn't sure if she'd like it so I got the small one, bacon and cheddar flavor. She's in the living room going at it. She loves it. Thanks for the positive feed back. I was looking for something that she could chew without tearing it apart and I think I found it. Now to wait and see if she still wants it when it's empty. If she doesn't I'll just fill it with something like the rest of you do.

Have a good night.

Here we go...20 minutes in and it's empty. The filling is gone and there is a chip out of the bone. I took it away from her because I don't want her to choke on a piece. Has anyone else's dog chipped one?

I'm not sure if Gizzie chipped it or not. She was throwing up all night after I gave it to her. There were scrapes in the bone, is that what you mean?

I don't like them...the ones we can get down here are not made in the US!

It's not a scrape it's a chip and this one is made in the USA. I guess it's time to look for something else. Maybe a black Kong bone.

I gave one of these to Piper (not sure if it is the one pictured) and she ate part of the outside and had the same experience as Gizmo. Projectile vomiting all night-it was not fun for her or me.
