I've had teeth problems with marrow bones and knuckles bones. I just stick to bully sticks and antlers now.

What is a good alternative to bones? I thought of the Himalayan Milk Bones or Antlers (has anyone any feedback on them). They are both very hard, would they crack my dogs teeth?

Elk antlers are not too hard and we have had good luck with them.

i think it's how a dog chews whether or not he cracks a tooth.
i give my dog center cut femur bones and elk antlers he's never
cracked a tooth.

himalayan milk bars

Has anyone tried these. Anyone had any digestive upsets with them being made from milk?
I like the look of them but the square corners make me nervous also as they get smaller, what if one of my dog swallows them, that would be disasterous.

Stosh LOVES the Himalayan chews!! He gets the ends softened up as he chews but only manages to get small bits off at a time, so he isn't consuming enough to cause any digestive upset. I buy the largest size and they last a long time, but when they get too small for him I pass them along to my niece's chihuahua.

When we took Joey to the vet prior to his neutering last month, we told him that we gave Joey marrow bones.

The vet said they're not a good idea. Joey could bite a piece off and swallow it, causing problems.

We stopped giving them to him; now he seems to be chewing on his paws more.
