Greenies From Mr Chewy Rock!
Mr Chewy contacted me and offered to send me some Greenies, this was perfect timing because a few weeks earlier I had just attended Blog Paws and was able to meet the wonderful people from Greenies. I actually spent some time at their booth to educate myself on these awesome dental dog treats.
I explained to the Greenies staff at Blog Paws that back in 2006 there was some issues with dogs and digestion in regards to Greenies. They assured me that there was a new formula that was re approved with the FDA and since then there hasn’t been any issues. I figured I would get it a go, they gave me a teenie size Greenie because I explained I wanted to put the dental dog treat in a jar to ensure that it fully dissolves before giving it to Haylie.
Haylie has jaws of life and can chomp up anything and then she inhales it, she can take down a bully stick or rawhide with no effort but im always worried if the peices were too big and if they will get stuck in her intestines. This is where Greenies can give me a peace of mind knowing that it doesnt matter how large of a peice she digest that it will be fully dissovable in her intestines. I put the Greenie in a jar with some vinegar to resemble a dogs digestion system. By day 3 it was completly soft and the water was a murky green. Day 5 , I picked up the jar for a closer look and it when I moved it the last peice was dissenegrated – the water was still murky green. It worked the Greenie was totally 100% dissolved, ofcourse I wish I had a picture but my husband through it out thinking I had already taken a picture of it. * Please keep in mind I did not use chemicals to match a dogs digestion system exactly, I used what I thought might work that I had in my kitchen to get as close as possible to a dogs digestion system.
If you have any doubts I do encourage you to try this experiment before giving these great dental dog treats to your dog if it will help ease your mind. These are great, Haylie loves the tast of them and I get to enjoy the satisfaction that they are cleaning her teeth at the same time. We love nothing more than to place an order with Mr Chewy to get our Greenies!
