    I have a phobia about giving my dogs any type of bone or hard chew in case they choke or get a blockage, and I feel a bit guilty sometimes because I know they'd love something to chew on. I did used to give them those deer antlers until I found out they destroyed teeth.

    So everything I've read about dried tripe seems positive and it looks like its a safe treat. Would that be correct? Would many here give dried tripe and consider ot safe?

    I give Muttly 100% dried tripe every other day. It;s perfectly safe, he adores it.
    He also has Cow Ears and Raw lamb ribs.

    How big is your dog? If your dog is small, then Morrisons do their own 100% natural dried tripe chews for £2, you get about 10-12 in there.
    If you have a bigger dog then Pet at Home do huge bags for £11.

    Thank you. Ive a collie a lab and a terrier, although the terrier probably won't be interested:Angelic, so medium sized dogs. I was actually planning on probably getting the one on zooplus as I get my dogfood from there. Im also limited because 2 of them have chronic pancreatitis so its great that the fat content is ok.
    I worry most about the collie because she's a bit dumb with food and eats very fast. But I do really want to give them something to chew, for their teeth as well.

    I would imagine the zooplus one is good?http://m.zooplus.co.uk/shop/dogs/dog_treats_chews/beef/offal/229715

    Yup, that one is fine :)

    You could try holding one end of it with your Collie, to teach her not to take it and gulp?
