In the last post, we’ve already talk about how to choose the right toys for your dog. In this post, we will continue to talk more about dog toys to help you select the right ones when facing various dog products.
If the toys aren’t made of food-grade plastic, they could theoretically poison your dog. You not only need to worry about what can break off and how hard the toy is, but also whether the toy itself is toxic. We haven’t yet heard of problems with rubber toys or rope bones. Rope bonds are soft on the teeth. And if they come apart, the strings are small enough. They don’t tend to cause problems.
Rawhide chews can be toxic as well. All kinds of byproducts, body parts including pig ears are contaminated. You are also at risk at diseases when you handle these products. The regular rawhide has a knotted ends. These knots can actually break off and get lodged in the dog’s throat. The rawhide we recommend here are CET rawhides that are flat stripes. They also have enzymes that help their teeth stay clean. But these are much safer. You still want to watch the pets with the chew. It is actually made out of pressed rawhide. Pressed rawhide breaks into pieces, so it won’t get stuck in their throats.
Big bones are only safe if they are boiled for hours to soften them. Otherwise, they can cause broken teeth and food poisoning. Chicken, turkey or other small bones can splinter and damage can cause punctures in the mouth, throat and stomach or intestines. So these should never be fed to pets.
Whatever dog supplies you choose, use common sense and look for tough, long-lasting and durable choices. If your dog likes what you’ve chosen, he will be sure to have good time.
