1. Hard to dent

Choose a chew that fits your dog’s teeth. Bones, antlers, and hooves provide long-lasting entertainment but are less suitable for puppies and senior dogs. If your adult dog is a passionate chewer, ensure they actually chew and that the chewing doesn’t damage their teeth. When you choose a chew for a puppy or senior, do a dent test: Push hard with your thumb – if it leaves a dent, it’s safe to chew.

2. In chews veritas

Cartilage or tendons chews are better for digestion than rawhides. After a long chew, the rawhide becomes soggy, and your dog might swallow large and hard-to-digest pieces.

3. Size matters and bigger is better

Pick a chew that your dog can chew rather than swallow as a whole. Smaller chews might choke your dog or block their digestive systems.

Nutritional benefits of natural chews

  • Bully or pizzle sticks: They are protein-rich, low-fat, and hard enough to last.
  • Tendons or esophagus: These are easy to digest and reduce plaque.
  • Tripe twists: Made from a cow’s stomach, the twisted form massages your dog’s gums and eases pain related to teething. When chewed on, they become soft and break off into small pieces.
  • Stuffed beef strips: The sticks have a tough exterior with a soft meat filling. They don’t last forever, but they are easy on the stomach. The strips are rich in calories.
