    I've heard people mention them a lot. Are they suitable for a puppy under 4 months?. Most things I find Star can't have cos they're for older pups. Also where do people buy them from?. How often do you give them as they're apparently quite high in fat?.

    The trainer at our puppy school said they're suitable for puppies under 4 months. I'm not sure how often we're meant to give them, but I usually only allow my puppy to eat one whole one once a week. It takes him around 3 days to finish it if I give it to him for about 40mins each time. We bought ours from Pets Corner. Pets at Home sell them now too.

    I order mine from Zooplus - same for all Lily's chews.

    Lily currently has one but hasn't actually eaten any of it; I leave it with her all the time - same for her dried gullets, cow's ear, lamb's ear and pig's ear.

    She is a steady, sensible chewer so I'm not too worried about her choking.

    I get pizzles from Zooplus and they're ok for puppies under 4 months - as are most things, you just need to supervise feeding.

    Pizzles are not high in fat, quite the opposite actually.

    I bought ones from Hollings. They didn't have a particularly strong smell.

    Are they safe to give in the crate over night or is it best to give them when you can supervise?

    When I went yesterday they didn't have any packs so I bought a single one and it didn't smell badly at all.

    We were given one from the trainers at the puppy school and that one really smelt. They gave us another one when we finished the course and that one was fine.

    Think we're going to buy more this weekend as he loves them.

    I also have these salmon skin knots and twist that he loves. The knots are massive so they last him ages, but the twist only lasts him like 15mins. Those are really healthy as well since it has omega3. Gives them a nice coat.

    I bought some from B&M home store and some from Petscorner. The ones from PetsCorner are pretty expensive £6.99 for a pack. You might be able to find some at a garden centre that has a pet section.
