chew recommendation

As a puppy, Shama loved pig's ears and bully springs and himalayan yak chews. There was a time that she also liked water buffalo horn (we cut the one we purchased into four smaller slices). Lately, we haven't really been giving her chews. Today, we remembered that we bought these beef tendons at the Minnesota State Fair, and we gave her one. She loves it! She's been chewing on it for the past 90 minutes! Now she "buried" it in one of her dog beds and is having a huge drink.

Too cute! Just wondering...does it take awhile for her to chew it down? I know some chews are chewed down more quickly than others.

She had it about two hours yesterday, and we just gave it to her again. After two more hours, we'll take a picture of it next to the untouched one from the bag to give you a size comparison. DH said the website suggests this chew is good for teeth cleaning . . .

For the first 90 minutes today, she just "buried" it in a pillow then guarded it. Then she decided to chew on it again. After about an hour, she has nearly finished it, and she went to get a drink. We took it away until another day. Each day, she drank more than a bowl of water after chewing on the tendon.

Soooo! Beef Achilles are SAFE! to chew and your dog eats and swallows it? After bad experiences with Pigs Ears and other eatables, ANTLERS and himalayan yak chews are the only things I give Patti.

Cows ears are the new favorites here. They seem much less fatty than pigs ears.

Shama still has the very first cow ear we gave her. Every once in a great while, she chews on it. It just lives in her pen waiting to get some loving from her . . . So far, we've been happy with the achilles. She didn't get any today, however . . .

Scout and Truffles favorite treat are beefy tendons. That's a pretty big tendon little Shama has in her mouth! 😊 Our pet store has long thin tendons, which do not last long. I ordered NULO chicken/apple jerky from Chewy. The jerky is going to be delivered tomorrow and I hope they like it. My friend says it's her dogs favorite treat.

@ShamaMama ... are you sure that's a Cow tendon on the photo you posted? Where did you get such a big tendon? Rethinking ... Tendons.

Patti still loves to Chew on Antlers and Yak Cheese stick and she's 1yr 10mos old.

I guess those tendons come in different sizes. Our pet store has them loose so I try pick the long thin ones. The dentist said not to let them chew anything that cannot be indented by your thumb nail. I don't want the furkids to have anymore tooth fractures! The tendons are hard but soften when they are not thick. NULO chicken/apple jerky just arrived so I'll try those tonight.
