IMO raw meaty bones are the best thing ever to keep a dogs teeth clean. But just for chewing pleasure my dogs also get bully sticks and hooves.
One Border Collie Is Never Enough
Yes, I saw in the Netherlands a kind of the same little documentary, of how it was made, and I was shocked. Body never liked the rawhide, in staid of that I gave her a neck of lamb, or things like that.
For her it seemed to me a good alternative, and she still likes it, also when the bone is a little bit older.
Glad this has helped you, jaceyd. I've always seen them at pet stores and thought 'huh, that looks interesting. But doesn't look too natural or healthy.' Never knew where they came from though. Glad I do now.
Sometimes, the smallest things bring the greatest joy.
Just ordered an antler ..... and deer foot! Will keep an eye out for some hoof trimmings from local horses
Never been a fan of rawhide and I have seen this article before. Good on you LB for continuing to spread the word, even if only one person realises how nasty they are it is a good thing. My boys love their bones but they also get dehydrated pigs and cows ears. I have a friend who is against the ears saying the dogs can't digest them however I have not found this to be true. Due to Max's rock eating I do a pretty close examination of poo to see what he is getting into and I have never found undigested ears LOL
