Opinions please

Both of my dogs love playing fetch with the large red Kong ball.

I've been noticing Jack's lower front teeth wearing down.

He doesn't chew on the ball, but I wonder if the hard rubber is bad for him.

He just doesn't get very excited about a frisbee and will ignore other balls.

Anyone tie hard rubber balls to tooth erosion?



Nothing is as simple as it seems or as complicated as we make it~

I haven't heard of this with kong balls, but definitely happens with tennis balls - there is something about the tennis ball material or glue that wears down their teeth.

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
