Puppy Edible Chews

June 28, 2013, 9:15 PM
Q: What are some good edible chews for a puppy? I had an older dog that loved dried lamb tracheas. I was told they had a lot of collagen. Can puppies chew these and digest them ok? Any other good or bad ones?
A: While the dried lamb trachea are suitable for an adult dog they are not a good choice for a young puppy until permanent teeth are in, around 8 months of age. I feel that Nylabone products are both attractive and safe for dogs of any age. Their "edible chews and gummie bone" products are well suited for young puppies. I do not like small or thin raw hide products as these can cause gastroenteritis or result in obstruction that may require surgery.
