After one week my dog went to the vet with an intestinal blockage. Vet said that he sees this often with these chews. They are meant to be well chewed as the chews are very dense. If your dog doesn't take the time to really chew them (as most dogs don't), then it can end up getting stuck in their system.
Beware! Check contents before giving these to your pets. Found fuzzy white stuff all over the greenies and a ton of bugs crawling around. Never had a problem with these until this last batch. I threw it away immediately but I should have checked the expiration date.
My lil guy loves these! He takes it and runs away to hide and chomp away on it! They are a bit big so if he didn't eat too long ago, then I split it in half and give him the other half a little later. They smell minty, at least as minty as a dog treat can get. I knocked off one star because I can't totally tell if it helps with his breath. His breath isn't too stinky to begin with, but I can't tell if it's made a difference. It probably would make a bigger difference if I gave it to him everyday since it's a daily treat, but I give it to him every couple days.
After ordering Petite I got large. Emailed the seller who promptly sent another bag...of large at no cost. So I compromised ...I opened this bag & broke these bones in half. Dog loves them but he's only 15 pounds. Amazon or online, is the only way I can get these living in the boonies. The first bag, I donated to the local dog shelter.
Greenies are terrific & even though I didn't get the right size, the dog is happy with 1/2 & I am happy that I thought of it.
The seller was really good and responsive - Thank you so much!
My dog LOVES his greenies so much that I have a subscription for them to come every other month! I started giving these to him because they do help clean his teeth and help with controlling plaque. His vet actually had him on some other dental treats but they were so expensive so I decided to try these because I had read a lot of positive reviews for them and they are more affordable. They did not disappoint! I definitely wouldn't keep buying something if my fur baby didn't like them..but he LOVES them! He's happy, so I'm happy!
These are the right size for my little Shih Tzus, but they don't seem to like them as much as the Petite ones. I wonder is the flavor different in some way. I got the Petite first thinking they would be the right size and missed the Teeny ones. So, when I ordered again, I got the Teenies. For some reason, my dogs don't like them.
My boys LOVE LOVE LOVE their Greenies. We give them one a day as a "dinner treat" when we are having dinner. They have had dental problems over the last few years, so I can't say that these are doing much for their dental health, but as a treat, they are a big hit in my house. I ordered an Amazon Dash button for my Greenies needs, and that has been very useful for making sure we always have enough.
These are great treats for my 20 lb shitzhu/bijon mix! We originally got them because his breath began to smell as he gets older (he is now 8). They do a good job of freshing his breath and my kids love giving the dog the treat every morning when we wake up. It’s now become a family ritual!
My dog absolutely loves this!! It gives me great pleasure to give him something that will help his teeth. Every day I give him one, he knows the sound of the bag, where they are kept & will wait patiently for them. Would recommend these dental treats for all dogs!
