    I was wondering if anyone gives their dogs Bully sticks and if so do you order them online? I found a good deal on them once but can't remember the site..My Lab can't have rawhides,,they DO NOT agree with her..so I've been buying bully sticks from a petstore ,but OMG are they expensive..

    Ebay has great deals on buying them in bulk - you can buy bully pieces too instead of a whole bully stick. AND they have them in different lengths [​IMG]

    Not to be a wet dishrag (or however the saying goes) but dogs can choke on them, and they can get stuck in the esophagus. We've done more than a couple of endoscopies to retrieve large chunks that dogs have tried unsuccessfully swallow. I know lots and lots of people feed them, and rawhides, with no problems, but just be aware of the risks.
    Ok. Naysaying done. [​IMG]

    Quote:I don't let me dogs have rawhides or anything like them. My old boxer got a chunk stuck in his throat one day...not only was it very scary but it was really gross when I finally got it out. So no rawhides here. They get actual bones like the big ones you can buy at the best store or like dentabones. and I make sure everyone is careful with them. Does anyone know of any other "safer" chews for dogs?

    I've always given my dogs Nylabones to chew on. Even my aggressive-chewer pitbull can't crack large pieces off of them.

    Jax has a really hard nylabone - hard white. He's frayed it around the edges but hasn't been able to chew it up.
    He also has a natural rubber nylabone that he can destroy, but it takes him awhile.
    I buy tons of the Nylabone Healthy Edibles for him to have a special treats. He loves these, but they are gone in minutes.
    When all else fails, I give him carrots to gnaw on. He love those too.
