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.
Our dog used to have seizures when he was eating Beneful food. After we switched him to Science Diet, they stopped. This was about 5 years ago. In the last month we bought greenies for our him because he has bad breath. After about a month of giving him one greenie a day, he had one of his old seizures. Once we stopped giving them to him, he hasn't had another seizure. Don't recommend.

These treats nearly killed my dog earlier this week. I had no idea they were dangerous until I started researching them on the internet after my dog suddenly became extremely ill this week. We thought he was going to die it was so bad. We spent 700 dollars at the vet dealing with an undigested greenie treat that gave him an upper GI bleed and a great deal of abdominal pain. We honestly thought he was going to die. If you love your dog like family, you need to research greenies before you end up with a very sick, or dead, dog.
Has anyone else complained that the 60 count Greenies Petite Size Dog Treats do not contain 60 pieces. This is the second order that did not last 60 days. We give our dog one Greenie a day, This order was received on August 30, 2018 and it is now depleted except for two chews. Please advise.
Hi Rosalie! We are so sorry to hear that your package was missing treats! This is not what we like to hear and we would love the opportunity to speak with you. Please contact our consumer care team on our website at https://www.greenies.com/contact-us or call us at 1-866-473-3643. Thank you!
The dogs love these. I hope they work like advertised. The one just had her teeth cleaned. She will really be my test subject. Hard to give higher rating til they finish the box. Then I can gauge her breath and teeth condition.
My four year old mix has bad breath, even though the vet says there's no plaque build up or health concerns. I started giving him one of these every morning and haven't noticed a difference after two weeks, though he does enjoy them. Part of the problem is most likely that he doesn't chew them very long. If you have a slow chewer, they may work better.
This is our first bag of Greenies. Dogies enjoy them and they have helped the tartar on the rear teeth. However, I've read that these are not good for dogs that need to have their anal glands expressed and i wasn't aware of this so want to call out. Minties, the alternative brand is also popular in my house.
Product is Okay. My little 12 pound Shi Sue dog Rascal will occasionally eat them but does not love them like his chicken Nudgey's. The reason for my only 3 star rating.... My last order on 3/04/2016 for the same 27 oz 45 item box was $17.00 now on 3/22/2018 they have gone up to $27.98... that's more than a little too much inflation in just two years in my opinion....!
My dogs love these and they certainly help Keep their teeth clean...but we keep getting the WRONG size. I keep ordering the petite (we have tiny chihuahua’s) it keep Getting the size LARGE. I’ve already complained once to amazon and they sent me a replacement but even the replacement was a size LARGE...won’t be buying them on here anymore. And yes, the size is important because I have to use sissors to keep Cutting these darn things up. Not easy to do...
The product does seem to work. If my dog has had a few of these over the course of a few days, her breath is noticably fresher. However, I walk her every single day, and she usually has to use the bathroom around this time. I do not give her Greenies daily, but I have noticed that every time I do give her one in the morning, her bowel movements are not formed well and very loose during her afternoon walk. This could well be a reaction in just my dog and not for others, but I would rather err on the side of caution. These just don't seem to digest well for my pup, so I will not be buying another bag. However, I cannot completely slam this product, as it did help her breath somewhat.
If it matters, my dog is a 5 year old long-haired Black Cream Daschund. She hovers between 12 and 12 1/2 lbs.
