Onion is toxic to dogs, but, the amount of onion powder in beef broth is small. I'm not feeding him the broth; I'm boiling the bone in it and then he chews the bone and spits out any little pieces. I figure the amount of actual onion consumed is less than he would get from licking the kitchen floor.

Thanks, Emoore for the great hint! I'm going to give it a try. Joey enjoyed his Nylabone for a while, now seems to be addicted to his Gappay ball. Want to give him something else to try.

Wow. How in 31+ years of dog owning did I never know this? Yikes. Glad I do now.

My GSD Wolf LOVS bully sticks (www.bestbullysticks.com has great prices, they also have an Ebay store). He also loves it when I get these bones http://source-www.petco.com/Assets/p...518443300B.jpg and fill them with peanut butter and stick it in the freezer. They were my best friends when he was teething LOL!

OK, Here's my problem. I use to give my 2 GSD'S nyla bones until my vet told me that one of my girls had 2 cracked teeth so of course that put an end to the nyla bones. So my question is do you think that antlers can do the same thing.My girls are older and they really enjoy chewing so I would like to offer them something.

Those looking for elk antler should order from

http://www.facebook.com/MTAntlerChews

They have amazing customer service I just ordered my first antler. They get collected from wild elk in the mountains of Montana and are made in the USA. I got a 11in antler for $24 that beats any petstore price and its much better quality and you know where its coming from. Also Elk antlers last longer than deer antlers.

Antlers are good. I would also recommend Busy Buddy Products, especially the Busy Buddy Barnacle. That keeps my dog busy for a very long time.
