Dog and Puppy Chewing Indoors
There are an infinite variety of things in pet supply stores that are intended for our dogs “chewing pleasure”.
They provide jaw exercises as well as massaging a dog’s gums.
Synthetic bones – Nylabones were one of the earliest synthetic bones produced. In the manufacturing process, natural meat flavors are incorporated right into the nylon. Nylon based bones wear down slowly and won’t splinter.
Rhino Bones – are very hard bones that are made of a rubber composite called Dental Flex.
Booda Velvets- are nubbed bones made of cornstarch and vinyl copolymer, are odorless and won’t splinter or stain.
Natural grain-based bones -are completely edible and digestible.
These bones come in flavors from traditional beef, chicken, mint, carrot, peach, watermelon.
Knuckle bones - are real beef bones . They are quite large and are likely to splinter
Pigs ears are animal-based chews are dried to a level of brittleness that seems to invite internal injuries when the shards are crunched into small pieces and swallowed.
Rawhide – Is made from the skin of cattle and has been a popular dog chew for a long time. It can be a good choice, but you must be careful in the type of rawhide you *purchase. Some rawhide that comes from outside the USA is contaminated with chemicals.
Owners who give their dogs rawhide should watch carefully as the dog chews it to prevent the risk of choking or bowel obstructions. Take it away from him if it starts shedding pieces. Some dogs chew very nicely working off small pieces, others attempt to sallow an entire strip of rawhide.
* Look for chews that are made from a single thick sheet of rawhide.
Don’t buy chews that smell putrid, or that have no odor at all.
Avoid rawhide products that are unnaturally white – this indicates extensive chemical treatment.
