Default dentabones?

Has anybody ever had a problem with Denatabones? My vet said to use them for Parker, So I gave him half a small one tonight. Which he liked but as soon as he got it all down, it came right back up, so gross. I think its cuz it was something new and he gobbled it down WAY too fast. But now I don't know whether to give it to him again some time.

I'm not nuts about that kind of stuff. I had a greenie and let Kacee (known to have an iron stomach but who is teething right now) have it for awhile. She threw it up. I might try them after she's older one more time.

I would wait about a week and let him try it again, but don't let him eat the whole thing - just about half. If that doesn't work, I wouldn't give them anymore...

Yeah...yorkies are just different from most breeds and their digestive tracts cannot handle a lot of different things. I also stay away from thngs like that. I do give bully sticks though.

I think bully sticks are good, because pieces don't break off. I like the greenies, too, but mine are grown up and they just eat them right up. I give them a piece of one every nite before bed. I take a small one and cut it in half (not an easy thing to do), and give them half each. I don't like to give them a whole greenie because they do eat them completely. And they have green stools if they eat a whole one.

And, I forgot to mention, that once when I gave them dentabones they ate it all up and their stools were filled with it. And little pieces all over the house. So, no dentabones for them. But, as someone else said, they are all different. Mine are very aggressive chewers. Hmmmm, that's how we gave Chewy her name. When she was little, she chewed everything in sight, as most of them do. lol

Have you tried "Greenies" they don't have any animal product in them and my Leah loves them as the name suggest they are green and look like a cross between a tooth brush and a denta bone. They also make "greenie" pieces. Which are tiny - just the right size!

I had this problem with Yoda when he was younger. It seemed like anything that I gave him for a chew treat ( be it denta bone, denta stick or greenie) he would get sick from it. He does not do it now, so I think maybe his tummy was just too sensitive. He was 6 mo. old when I first started giving them to him and now he is 7 mo.

thanks for the suggestions guys! I Have tried the teenie greenies and he has been okay with them, but I just figured I'd try the Dentabones since the vet had suggested them. I think I'll hold off on trying them again till he's a bit older. What are "bully sticks"? and where can I get them?

I gave Ramsey one and it gave him Dierreah. But that was the only problem Ihad with it,, he loved them though.

I bought one of those for Maximus...stupid me didn't realize it was "edible" so I was talking to Nobella last night and saying how cheaply the bone was made and I was going to throw it out becaues Maximus had eaten pieces off of it..but before I threw it out I decided to look at the package to make sure that there wasn't anything toxic in it and it there was so I could bring it to the vet with Maximus for tests..well turns out they are EDIBLE and that's why he had chewed the heck out of it..He loves it I got the peppermint flavor!!

yes they are good.. CHICLE LOVESSSSSSSSS EM.. i got the green colored one i think thats spearment flavor .. but then i bought the assorted 3 pack flavored and he didnt like the white one he likes the green and blue one

but what im really trying to look for something that is not so destructable but still has flavor ... i know there are nylabones the plastic ones but those Chicle got bored of .. so i decided to give him string! HE LOVES TO PLAY WITH THAT ... he flips it up in the air and then grabs it and then chews on it ... its long enuff that he wont swallow it .. he knows not to swallow too.
i gave him an elastic think string band too and he love to play with that too ..
just something esle go give that he cant digest i guess ... hes been eating so many treats that i wanna give his tummy a rest and so far the STRING IS WORKING
