    Default Teeth & Kong Tennis Balls

    Hi,

    I'm having a hard time finding professional opinions online. Ok, makes sense, tennis balls are bad for teeth, that's everywhere. Are Kong tennis balls bad too?

    Thx...

    Why would tennis balls be bad for teeth? My dogs always had tennis balls. All had great teeth. The real ones not the cheap ones. Make sure once they are broken they go in the garage. They did have other toys.

    Google it. They're abrasive. Maybe your dogs aren't chewers. Check their canines - see if they're pointy or shaved off...

    That's why i hardly let my boy play tennis balls. Chuck it balls are good.
    they are light and durable. I especially like the one that whistles.

    All dogs ive own since a child mostly big dogs all had beautiful white teeth and non abrasive. Maybe one or 2 was a bit round when they were 10 to 14 yrs old but they were sure all intact and solid. They didn't have only tennis balls as they didn't last long. Vets would tell me "good job on brushing their teeth" pfffft, I never brushed any of my dogs teeth. I always gave them frozen bones with marrow, balls of all sorts mostly soccer balls and rubber toy as rubber removes tart.

    Please do and let me know, much appreciated... I'm expecting him/her to say conventional tennis are bad. Makes sense that Kong tennis balls are ok...
