    Default Possibly a stupid question

    There is no such thing as a stupid question right? Well I searched the previous posts and couldn't findything so now I have to ask...

    Mack is allergic to poultry...chicken, duck, turkey...I've had a really hard time getting him to chew anything other than rope toys...

    So I bought a nylabone that came with a nutradent green thing...not really planning on giving him the green thing bc it seems small enough that he might try to swallow it, unless you guys think its ok?

    But here's the stupid question...its chicken flavored...do you think it will bother his poultry allergy? I didn't notice until I already gave it to him and he LOVES it... I feel like antlers are soooo expensive and its likely he wouldn't be interested anyways seeing as I've tried so many other chew toys...

    Help!

    I think it should be okay, because its only "flavored". I doubt it has any chicken in it. Just keep an eye out for any reactions.

    There are know stupid questions :-) It is possible that it could cause a reaction for Mack. We bought the arcadia antlers for our EBD and our Olde English Bullddogge, not knowing how they would like them as the both prefer rope chews and they both love them, yes they are expensive, but they have been chewing on them since early November and have not even made a dent in them, they are well worth the money, we bought different sizes, but our EBD likes the "button" sizes best and they are bigger than they look online as I was worried about him choking on them.

    You should be OK.... Banks has a high sensitivity to chicken and she has been chewing on 'chicken flavored' nylabones for years -- never an issue

    I think it will be fine, and I would not give him the green thing, possible chocking hazard.

    I agree with all the advice above, if its chicken flavoured then it's probably artificially flavoured, and so should be okay, but just keep an eye on him.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    In my opinion it could be trouble, if it comes from real chicken and if it doesn't it's soo artificial that it can't be good for him...

    But I wonder how much chicken it would be even if it was real chicken used in the flavoring...
