Bone recommendations

Hi there,
My little girl loves to chew. I've come to the conclusion that the nylabones are not good. The pieces accumulate in her stomach and then she throws them up. Does anyone have any recommendations for bones to chew on?
Thank you.
Tammy

My pups have done well with antlers and Himalayan Chews.

Do some research about how most rawhide is processed

Rawhide can cause blockages too, if the dog rips off and swallows big pieces.

Colbie had the same issue with nylabones. We switched to moose antlers and himalayan chews as well.

Sheldon gets lamb marrow bones and bully sticks. I wish he would eat antlers, but he's not interested unless smeared with peanut butter.

I'll try the lamb marrow bones and bully sticks. One time I did give her an antler (forgot the source) but it felt like she was going to break a tooth on it!

Thanks for all the suggestions! You guys are awesome!

Two of my dogs have broken teeth on deer antlers. I have been giving them dried catfish skins from Honest Kitchen lately. They stink a little but my dogs love them and they clean their teeth. I buy the large ones as they last longer and they don't try to swallow them whole which they sometimes try to do with the smaller ones. They are supposed to be good for them as well.
