    Default Best bones for pugs to chew on...

    Greenies are out, and she loves the "nyla" bones, but eats them fast. I have Bully Sticks, but what else? There are tons at Petsmart, but Im not sure if they are good. What about Pigs Ears?

    Thank you

    Mine love the sterilized white bones too but all the ones I'm finding are to fat for their little mouthes. Are you able to find smaller ones?

    I've heard some not-so-good things about pig ears, but I've never given them so I cannot speak from experience. We do the white bones, bully sticks and nylabones in our house. I haven't gotten the antlers yet but everyone here always raves about them.

    Diesel and Kayla love the white bones. They get all the filling out of them and then just chew on the bones. I have yet to find any that are small enough to fit in their mouths, but don't worry, they manage just fine.

    I gave Diesel and Kayla pig ears one time - they got them as a graduation gift from obedience class. It started an all-out brawl one morning and they never got them again. Besides, I don't like them cuz they're just like bully sticks and rawhides - get all soft and soggy and then Diesel gets the soggy part stuck down his throat.

    Ours too. Even if there is no filling left, they carry them around and chew. Every foster I've had goes nuts for them too.

    I've found both big and smaller ones at Petco or Petsmart -- you have to dig. We just ordered some from Jeffers Pet -- http://www.jefferspet.com/ssc/produc...TVQ7EGDU5KCU7D (they sell them as sterlized natural bones). The smaller ones were a perfect size for my boys, but then again, maybe my boys just have big mouths!

    Just watch your toes. When they drop them from their mouths -- OUCH!

    NO! Don't buy the rawhide -- all sorts of problems with rawhide. Search for sterlized white bones or sterilize natural bones.

    My dogs get the sterilized white bones, sometimes you can find thin ones. They also have antlers, they love those!

    No - they're bone bone. Not sure what animal they're from, but it's a bone. You can get them filled or unfilled. I've never had the stomach for the filled ones, so my guys only get the unfilled. I'm so evil.
    But yes - beware when they drop them on your toesies - it hurts!!
