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!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
