I've used them too and they seem good. I tried the denta rasks from Pedigree also but they gave twinkle the runs :yuk:

Make sure you get the right size though. I use the 4kg - 10kg size.

yeah i got the small ones, although when jasmine chews on them they turn into a real mess and end up stuck on her ears and everywhere else :D

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwi remember about a month ago jasmine had a dose all the squirts all night and we put newspaper all over the landing to save the floor, and of course when i got up to go to the toilet in the middle of the night i stood in it in my bare feet... thank goodness it cleared up right away.

I like the idea of them...but not the ingredients :yikes

I try to avoid anything that says "meat and animal derviatives" as this is not good news :(

In the past when they have had things like this we had diarrhoea problems too...which makes me wonder just exactly what is in these?

Maybe try something like air dried pigs ears, tripe sticks or bully sticks...good chewing fun and much healthier

We do have snoods, but Rupert and TedBear won't tolerate them due to their Syringomyelia - so I take their ears up behind their heads and loosely put a scrunchie round them....or a snood folded over several times. This keeps the ears out of things LOL

i gave King a greenie a couple of times and it gave him the runs...plus his stool was green...but i bought that Greenies Smart chew (a chew made by greenies that isnt edible they just chew it) which he likes...plus everyother day i brush his teeth so they r pearly white all the time.....plus i found a toy called Fleecy Cleans (a fabric tug toy) that cleans teeth as they play wit it.... :D
