Chew treats

Post by Paris1990 on Sat Nov 18 2017, 20:24

Anyone had any success on any kind of chew treat that lasts longer than 10 minutes Laughing can’t get hold of any bones here, the butchers are abit odd when I asked for some and won’t buy the ones in the shops as they are cooked.

Was recommended a pigs ear by the lady in my local pet shop and it lasted 10 minutes Straight Face

Eagerly watching as have the same problem.
Nifty loves those caramel-coloured rawhide bones (not the white knotted ones) but I remove and bin once the chewed bit goes all white and gooey sick

In desperation, I have bought ingredients to make stuffed kongs instead

Have a look at “yakers” dog chew. They are made of milk or something, all I know is Gus loves them and they last for ages.

You took the words out of my mouth James. Misty loves her Yak chew. They are made of yak milk from the Himalayans. They don't look like they will last but they do.

Also stag bars are great they last forever. She also loves her buffalo horns, again they last ages and all natural.

If you have freezer space, you can order bones from Landywoods. Their minimum order (I think inc p&p) is £30.

Thanks guys will have a look at those yak ones, at the moment we just an so have enough freezer space for Hank’s food but are looking into getting another small freezer for our outhouse so once we do will add the bones from landywoods as that’s where we get his food from, I tried once before but got the wrong ones and they sent whole ribs and I didn’t know what to do with them Laughing

I forgot you use Landywoods anyway Rolling Eyes

Whole ribs get given whole here! They don't last terribly long but they love them. The only annoying bit is that they come all frozen together - dropping them on the floor a few times usually does the trick though.

We got our freezer off Gumtree - £40 for a commercial sized chest freezer! It's worth looking there for and outhouse dog food freezer.

Stag bars are a fave here, Flo has a couple on the go. As a quick treat she has duck strips but they don't last 10 seconds let alone mins!!!

We have stag antlers, pigs ears, snouts, tripe sticks, chicken feet & beef jerky! Only the stag antlers last though, or raw bones when we get to the butchers.

Lots of great info here folks - Leah loves to chew so I've been looking for a range of options. I'll give the stag bar a go, sounds exactly what she needs.

Vets are now discouraging giving stag bars to 'power chewers' ie dogs that just continually gnaw at them, as they wear down the tooth enamel.

Short bursts is probably okay, but not extended sessions.

The same applies to the roots - be careful with power chewers!

I didn’t think the roots would be as tough as stag bars Gilly.

The Yakers has been a hit for us, last him the weekend in between him playing with other things but my goal was to keep him occupied while I do housework as he chases me Laughing

We got some bones with his meat order and all he does is lick the marrow out of it then leaves them.

Not as tough, no, but constant gnawing at anything 'hard' could wear down the enamel & exposing the centre.

Those are the ones I specifically avoid. They're the middle of the beef limb bone, incredibly hard, and if you have a chewer those are the bones that can do damage to teeth.

Aaaah Liz.. they don’t specify on the website which animal they are from
And looked smaller on the photo to when they arrived.. should I get the calf bones? I’ve bought the ribs off them before and it was whole ribs not cut up and just didn’t know what to do with them Straight Face

I get any of the Landywoods bones except the marrow bones, either shank or knuckle. They love the trotters, one is a whole meal, as by the way are turkey wings - they're huge (there are some ordered for Christmas).

Ribs - you don't know what to do with them or Hank doesn't? If it's that you don't, never fear! Hank'll show you. You just give them as they are (still frozen in the summer). They don't last very long, though. Laughing

Lamb ribs this morning...
