    Default What is a long lasting and tasty chew thing?

    Hey all!
    Miss Daisy seems to chew up everything so quickly. I heard that Rawhide isnt good for them. But what is? I believe someone mentioned some kind of antler... Unless I was imagining things. lol We have done the edible Nylabone and that lasts only an hour. Thanks

    We use Antlers, either Deer, or Elk, some like Moose - the sticker shock is a bit much off of the get go, but they do last a very long time (compared to other chew toys) Keep in mind, they are BONE LIKE, very HARD, and some dogs have gotten broken teeth from Antlers (but I'm sure they have broke teeth on other things too!) There is an X-ray floating around Facebook about a dog that swallowed a piece of Antler, which did some damage, but with ANY chew toy, it should be supervised, and if they can swallow it, it should be removed from them.

    DO NOT BUY ANTLERS that are SPLIT down the middle, the Marrow gets everywhere, and the edge becomes very sharp and knife like.

    Hey Sheena & Daisy.... Your absolutely correct about the Rawhide, even my Vet suggested I keep way away, what happens is the Bully's chew on the RawHide, pieces break aloose, and in the process of chewing and breathing, they inhale the pieces into their already obstructed throats, causing severe choke hazards. I shop for Rocky at Pet Smart, and the line of chew toys I look at their is Kong's, and Indestructable marked bones, such as I want to say Nylabone, it's a yellowish color, and Rocky will chew one up a Month, But I also keep him with Kong Chewables, Frisbies, and many chew toys, as long as he's chewing on his toys, he's leaving mine alone, and furniture too. Pet smart and other Pet stores have what they call the indestructable line, it's made for Heavy chewers, such as a BULLY GOAT, Pitt Bull, German Shepherds, Pets with excessive jaw force and a need to teeth. Things Rocky enjoys are bones and or Rings with Raised knobs in them, even a bone I've got, looks like the bottom side of a pair of cleets, he loves it and chews on them for a while, and I keep 5-8 of them out for him at all times. Rocky's favorite past time is grabbing a 2 liter plastic bottle from where ever he can find it, a nearby plastic coke bottle someone sets down is also game, he kicks it around my work room playing soccer for about an hour, before getting bored, and chewing it to smitherenes, The trick is to keep a close eye on them with the cap, because they will chew it off, and this also becomes a choking hazzard. Hope this helps, but The KONG Line seems to have some fantastic toys that seem to last for Rocky.

    We use the regular Nylabones, the wolf size and mine like them, and Nylabone and Kong also make some hard rubber ones too.

    Dave, Because you had mentioned it in other threads I tried this out with the 2 liter bottle thing on the ground this weekend. After barking for about 20 minutes at the bottle Buster finally went after it and it was hysterical! He could not figure out why after he punched it in it came popping back out with this incredible bang!! LOL! He chased it around our den until he was just plain worn out for what seems like over an hour. He almost took out 2 side tables and a lamp while chasing it around. Thanks for the advice! LOL! It was a good laugh!

    Ace likes the antlers best. He sometimes will chew on the xtreme kong and he never cared for the nylabones. But for a durable chew that actually provides some nutrients the antlers are good.

    I use antlers for both of mine, large jumbo sized ones. I also get the tough toys that have a rating on them as too the strength for intense chewers. They are a little pricey but last forever. The toys are huge and Amber and Ruby play tug of war and drag them everywhere plus we pull on them. So far none of them have any signs of wear and we have had them for a couple of months. The ones I get them have a rating between 8 and 10, each toy has its own individual rating. Good luck.

    If you shop around the antlers aren't expensive at all. I get 3 large Elk for 23.00, 3 jumbo for 30. I'm not sure I can post a link here or not but if you ask I will give you the site
