|AngelaA6||I've contemplated buying them myself because they're a great chew/treat like a marrow bone but they're just so gosh darn expensive and I don't think they last very long to justify the price. I'd rather buy an antler which would last me at least two weeks before it gets too small for Gunther to gnaw on.|

|volcano||Its human food too, its a hard cheese that you gnaw on. They just sell it as dog food.|

They are so expensive because they (Petsmart) adds in shipping and tax, and still charges tax! I asked the associate last year, because I was trying to determine if I would be better off buying online instead of in the store.
My sister's terrier mix loves them too. I just purchased one though. It was a medium size one.

As far as broken teeth, with pretty much everything, you have to consider what kind of chewer your dog is. If your dog likes to chomp down hard on everything they get, of course they're going to break a tooth. My dog gets raw bones, antlers, etc because I know he chews properly on them, grinding them down and not trying to break them in half with his teeth. Just like with pretty much everything else, know your dog.

|CharlieB.Barkin||I've never heard of those but I avoid any chews that have drastic edges like that. I would this that they would be a tiny bit malleable though, but I wouldn't know.|

Anyone other than me worried about tooth cracking on Himalayan chews? My vet has warned me about antlers and equally hard things, incl fresh bones, leaving bully sticks and rawhides which I do not like. she says a cracked tooth CAN CAUSE BIG TROUBLES and her words were: "If you could see what I have seen due to those hard items, including fresh bones, you would not chance it." She does not give her OWN dogs bones, antlers etc. BUT SHE SAID THE HIMALAYAN chews are okay.
Your thoughts and experiences?
Also my dog has had loose stools. Wondering if the HIMS would help stop now?

Awesome story! I might try microwaving Dinozzos for a bit. If anything maybe it will give more smell and entice him more.

Amazon link to the 3-pack
Here is the link to the 3-pack of chews:
Even better deal than I remembered, 3 for $22.70. I have also bought them at bestbullysticks.com when they have specials. Since Ollie goes through a lot of chews, I'm always looking for deals.

I like them, but I don't get them very often as they are expensive. I would also be interested in that Amazon link
I have to keep an eye on mine because he has figured out that if he takes it onto the linoleum floor and flings it down until it breaks up into pieces, I'll microwave it. I worry about him choking on the smaller bite-sized chunks. Definitely something I would monitor while your pup chews on it.
Also, I did microwave an entire stick the first time I got one because I misread the directions and thought you were supposed to microwave the entire thing BEFORE you gave it to the dog. I was wondering why 30 seconds in the microwave wasn't puffing it like the package said. I ended up microblasting it for about five minutes and it expanded into a massive, lumpy abomination the size of a six inch sub. It was pretty entertaining watching Kaiju trying to crunch it down into manageable pieces.
