Yes or no? I was at the pet store looking for chewies for panzer and came across some Rawhide. It says 100% natural but made in Mexico. I'm not buying any food or treats made is China. Is Rawhide ok for dogs?

I've heard both sides. I don't buy them for Tank because I've been told they are hard for them to digest and dogs tend to swallow big pieces that they then can't pass.

I do recommend deer antlers, they help to keep the teeth clean.

Tank also loves dehydrated chicken.

Personally I do not give rawhide and I may be misinformed but I was told a long time ago that the digestive system takes a long time to process rawhide. I prefer dentabones or a great toy is nylabones. They are strong, durable and last just about forever.

I bought a few nylabones. I saw the deer antlers and was wondering about those. Are they tough?

My dogs love antlers. I had a pair of beautiful custom made antler earrings and that jackasses ate them. This was my dogs first introduction to antler. They are good for them and they don't splinter so it makes them safe for chewing and digesting.

I would personally stay away from giving rawhides. I've seen where they cause diarrhea in some dogs, and blockage in other dogs. There was a dog in the beginner's agility class a few week's ago, whose owners had given him a raw hide, and a $2000 operation to remove the blockage that it caused.

Nyla bones, deer antlers, soup / marrow bones, and bully sticks are things that are okay to give to a dog.

I love the kongs,but hate the way that the stuff comes out of them,I know with little dogs I have to clean them out as there is no way they can get the deeper stuff out of the kong

I bought a Kong with the sticks you can shove in them but I think I bought a size too small. I bought a Medium and the insert said large for Rotties so I'll probably have to replace it after a short time.

a little tip I was told about with the peanut butter and treats in the kong together. If you freeze it, it takes longer for them to get it all out and it doesn't make as much of a mess.

Yes only nylabones, but you'll need a bigger one soon..... Smile very soon


Watch him with those little stuffed animals too, don't leave in crate, only nylabones or kongs in crate. Mine would destroy a stuffed toy in minutes. Those tug of war ropes are good too, if it's a heavy duty one.

I used to let mine play with those 2L plastic pop bottles big mistake he became obsessed with them and if he saw one on our walk would carry it in his mouth till he found a better one in which case he would try to carry both.
