Paranoid New Mother?
Does that help at all? Nylabone makes a LOT of different products - their soft ones, "edible" ones and greenies don't last beyond a minute here. Hope that helps!
Mom and personal assistant to the Ao4
1.) Greenies bad, avoid them. Get the stuff that is small like pencils that are made for chewing, then you don't have to worry about us inhaling a big nub and choking.
2.) Nylabones are good... gummibones are bad. Gummibones don't stand up to our chewing and can be a choking and obstruction hazard, but the nylabones withstand our chewing and we can only get small pieces off which aren't harmful to us.
3.) Huskies aren't suppose to have sensitive stomachs. We purebred from really good breeder types can eat whatever we want with no problems. Huskies (unfortunately) get the "sensitive stomach" label from all of the poorly bred puppymill puppies that are churned out. Same thing goes for thyroid conditions, which aren't as common as some make it out to be.
4.) Rawhide stuff has its hazards. Stuff made overseas is crap and processed with bad things, but in general, we can easily choke on them, and humans can actually get salmonella poisoning from poorly treated ones.
5.) um... pig ears are just rawhide in chip form... you didn't really think they were actually dried pig ears did you :) Get the really tasty, processed, chipboard looking dog bone shaped ones that have the flavored goo in them... tasty and not a choke hazard :)
6.) your pups will not be happy unless they get fed raw steak with every meal.
ok, #6 is true, but not necessary, but the rest of the stuff above is true.
