It ain't over- till the fat- kitty sings

Can you make suggestions for durable tasty chews? I've tried antlers and they got bored with the taste. Sophie is happy with ribs and BusyBones. Callie is a major chewer. I gave him the ultimate size Busy Bone-one of those lasts Sophie more than a week. He had it completely munched in 2 hours. Those things are like meat flavored bricks...yow, suggestions?

I'm a big brat- and I don't care- :)

What about freezing something in a Kong? That keeps Koby busy.

How about antler chews? Those last a while, do not splinter, and the dogs love them!

Yak chews last my dogs if I get them the bigger size. They also love bullies but they don't last long. Please note a lot of dogs break teeth on antlers and Purina makes Busy Bones.

Thick bully sticks last a long time, are natural & totally digestible.

Thanks, gotta look for bully sticks that are thick-the ones I've seen the cats could nip through...I'm going to try the frozen Kong idea. I tried him with doggie ice cream and he loved it so great idea!!!snoopy

Interesting how Sophie is so delicate and picky in her food and treat habits and Callie is just NOMNOMNOM MUST EAT IT ALL...except sausage, pancakes cookies anything and everything as quickly as possible...but not sausage

Can I get a- belly rub?

you can try himalayan chews, those tend to last little longer than bully sticks

The braided bully sticks, the ones with the thick strands and about 6-8 inches long seem to last the longest with us.
