    Default healthy dental chews

    Can anyone recomend some good dental chews,ones that will take her a while to chew
    ive tried logic,no problems with them and
    nutrident(she goes nuts for theese)

    but they dont seem to last very long and are gone in seconds,id be afraid theyd get stcuk in her throat,its seems like she bites them into chunks and swallow.

    ive read the posts on hear about greenies so thought theese might be "safer"but having seen how quickly she devoured a nutri dent im not sure ill give them to her again.

    anyone ever tried theese.

    I used to give Molly and Dougall Bull Pizzles it took a longtime for them to chew but one day Molly tried to swallow one that was not short enough. I very occasionally give them a Paddy Wack chew or Raw Hide. I am not very keen on chews as I am scared they will be swallowed too quickly. I now clean their teeth and gums. Their main treat/chew are Neem Sticks. Have you thought of a Kong, if you type kong into the search box, a number of people here have some really good ideas as to what to put in them.

    How about some pieces of raw carrot? Trapper takes a while to chew his, but Bosco has his gone in seconds, so it might not solve your problem.

    I give my 3 rawhyde chew, Rabbits ears (as opposed to pigs ears), Hi-life special care chews (these seem to last the longest), pizzles (when im feeling flush!!)

    I also buy tescos dental chews (which dont last long at all!) - they only get about half a chew each daily as they are high in calories!

    We used compressed rawhides for our boxer and they worked well. I got some for Rose from a different store, though (Target) and they were not the same (and of course, about 2 lbs smaller! lol), they had "balls" of rawhide in the ends where the nubs are. I am going back to the pet store to get the brand I used to get. The nice thing about these is that they don't come off in big chunks (or aren't supposed to!) so the choking hazard is reduced, but they still taste like rawhide. You can get them in rings, regular bones, etc. and from 4 inches to 12 inches long. Until this last off brand batch, we were more than happy through 4 years of boxer jaws .
