Wow! She's almost a dog. And she's a very active chewer. She chews like it's her day job and can unroll a rawhide chew in about 20 minutes. Nylabones last a little longer, but even they succumb to her strong jaws and teeth and become rough and jagged on the ends.
So what's to be done? Butchershop beef knuckle bones are great, but for sure not to be enjoyed on the rug in the house. And now I learn that rawhide is actually not good for dogs that can consume it like candy--especially if its the cheap poor quality "made in China" variety where they have very little quality control. Some hounds actually experience impaction from the stuff, and surgery is required.
As it turns out, I found what could be a great alternative--100% natural deer and elk antlers all products of the USA. At first glance, they seem pricey, but if they last like the reviews say they will, they are a value in the long term. They come in different sizes, and at 40 lbs., Korie is a borderline "medium" elk antler size. However, I know she has a "large dog" mentality when it comes to chewing, so I'll be ordering up for her to make sure she can't break the smaller one or damage her molars trying to.
Amazon.com with their free shipping on orders $25 and up, no tax and delivery to my door in a timely manner with a smile on the box is my "go to" source for almost anything not in the grocery store. They continue delight with their "Chasing Our Tails" brand elk antler chewies. I'm ordering these today in the large size. I hope they are all they are supposed to be. I'll have Korie post a review.
