    Question Chewies...

    I was curious what everyone's pups like to chew (bones...etc)..... I'm extremely paranoid about giving them Greenies, rawhides (NO WAY), nylabones. I hear so many differing stories on any of these, I was just wondering if in particular the nylabones are actually ok? I won't give them rawhides, but maybe Greenies, just not sure.....

    I would be interested in what people think as well. I would never give rawhides, I thought about Greenies but then read that they do not get digested very well. I have given Jax one of those Himalayan dog chews which is made from yak and cow milk. He liked it and it lasted for quite a long time and there were no issues.

    Cosette adores Nylabones ( she has four!) and it really satisfies her. My experience with my first Frenchie is that Greenies messed with her digestive system.
    Even my first dog, a greyhound, could not tolerate rawhides.

    We give ours Nylabones and have never had a problem. We do not and will not ever give them Greenies, Raw hides, pigs ears, or bully sticks. Nylabones and Kongs are about it.

    Chewies...

    I pretty much stick with nylabones here, there is so many types to choose from, and antlers.

    Ah, thanks David! I was wondering about bully sticks.

    Thanks to everyone, I will definately stick to Nylabones only!

    I only use nylabones. I'm too paranoid to use anything else.

    Re: Chewies...

    The only thing here is "white bones". I get them at Petco, comes in a few different sizes. They can chew on them forever, super hard.
    They can choke on greenies. My 1st bulldog I gave him a greenie & he turned in CuJo, I guess he loved it No more after that. I have heard antlers are really good

    Agree with others. And I also give marrow bones from the butcher/meat section (soup bones)

    This may be a dumb question, but I assume you give them marrow bones because they don't splinter?
