    I want something very very similar, because Muttly really loves these and with all we have been through, I don't want to upset things.
    Thing is Greenies are quite expensive, even the 'Teenie' size I buy.
    P&H are £10.99 for a pack of 43 (although they are doing buy one get on half price at the mo).

    But wondered what others use as a daily treat for teeth that are like this.

    He has a carrott a few times a week too.

    Thanks :)

    Ha! Yes it is, they aren't actually expensive at all are they! :Facepalm :oops:

    He has had those Whimzees before thanks Lexie! Mum got them so wasn't sure where they were from or what they were called. They work out 14p!

    I'd agree with the Whimzees, Bungo loves them, though I do have to be careful with him as he does get through them rather fast and too much gives him soft poos.

    The best thing for teeth I find is natural rawhide bones. Takes Bungo a while to get through one.

    I'm sure I pay about £1.30 for about 10 chicken wings. So 13p each. I know Muttly went off raw but would he take these as a treat rather than as raw being his staple diet?

    I have got some lamb bones in the freezer, I kept them as he always liked these (thanks for reminding me :oops:). But they are not very portable lol, I will be going away over Xmas so want something for there.
    I must say though, Muttly's teeth are lovely at the moment and I;m thanking the Greenies for that!

    I showed Muttly an Antler in P&H and he was very interested in it. But ideally I don't want something that's lying about all the time. I spose I could pick it up after a chew session....

    Lucy loves Whimzees - i buy them from Crufts normally as much cheaper but I know PAH sell a bag of the stick type ones for about £8 i think.

    Better ingredients too :)

    Next year at DogFest I am going to collect soooo many samples!! The bloke gave us like 4 or 5 bags (for 3 dogs), if I had known what a hit they were going to be, I would of kept going round for more :p

    I must admit they do hurt when stood on so we tend to put them in his toy box so he can growl and bark at it before taking it out (i know, he is mad LOL) but they don't smell or get slimy or anything like that. Mind you be warned Buffalo horns are good to but when they get chewed they smell of cow doody :Jawdrop
