Beware of "greenies"
« on: November 27, 2005, 03:47:40 pm »
I just received an email warning dog lovers about the possible danger of "greenies".  There have been instances where dogs have incurred bowel obstructions from these treats.  To learn more, go to http://www.kirotv.com/investigations/5325021/detail.html  for an investigative report, and to the "urban legends" site, http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/greenies.asp

I think I have bought my last Greenie. They were expensive, too.
Plus he still got tartar on his teeth!
Jasper loved them though.
Fortunately no problems as my boy is a very neat and tidy chewer---he creates pieces about the size of my finger nail.
I know this because he chewed an entire multicolored rubber wobbler type toy (looks like an atom); and I found little colorful bits all around my yard.
I felt so bad for not selecting a better toy for him.
I'll stick to stuffed Kongs--they can be so much fun!
What else I can use to plug the ends? I won't buy the Kong stuff...too much $
He gets his kibble in it-
I use cheese; PB; or stick mini Old Mother Hubbard biscuits in the ends.
