Best Chew toys for POWERFUL chewers.

5 posts in this topic

I have a 1.5yo yellow lab who chews through everything. She's fine cause she only chews on what we give her, but so far she is yet to meet her match. She's gone through rawhides, Red Kongs, Black Kongs, Several Nylabones which she gnaws down into nice sharp prison shanks. I thought I had the answer with the cattle shin bones (hard as rock, cheap, last for a while). But now we go to the vet and she has a broken back tooth. What's next? Also, anyone deal with broken teeth much? It doesn't seem to bother her, and the doc wants $600+ to remove it, or I'm told I can get her a $1000+ root canal??---Are you kidding me??

The best thing that I have found are the extra large nylabones... My Griffon loves them and they do last longer than anything else that I have found... Breaking teeth, wow that is amazing! Hopefully you dog will slow down a bit with age....

$600 dollars? I think I had a dog's tooth removed 2 years ago for around $100... and most of that was sedation!

I think you'd be cheaper off going to a human dentist. Call a couple other vets and get a price.

Good Luck!

Does she chew on other stuff if she doesnt have a bone? I know that it is good for the teeth but what I have done is give them something to chew for a limit time. My thought is then they don't see it as they have to finish it off...my 2 cents

Thanks for the advice all, yes, we're looking for second opinions for the tooth removal, I haven't spent that much on my teeth, maybe I will ask my dentist! The nylabones do work ok, I'll look for the biggest I can find. Yeah, she doesn't chew on other stuff, but she's kind of a pest without some entertainment. I know, I should give her more exercise, but when it's zero outside, I seem to lose ambition! Thanks for the help all!

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
