Our dog is also not a raw diet, but we give her raw bones a few times a month. It’s really the only thing that lasts a long time. Like yours, she goes through all other hard treats. We also give her a Kong filled with PB and soft treats (frozen to make it last longer) and while it entertains her, it doesn’t seem to be doing anything for her teeth.

My pup LOVES raw marrow bones, bite sized carrots ( not too many otherwise they get the shi*s), fresh fruits but avoid grapes, plumbs, and other pitted fruits Since the pits are toxic. I also recommend doggie biscuits but avoid anything “manufactured” outside of the US – careful with that as some will say “distributed in the US” but doesn’t always state manufacturing location. You should apply the same rule to your pups regular food, also.

A goods Teeth Cleaner treat are “Check-ups” – they are even Gluten free

@soontobemrsm11:  I’ve heard good things about deer antler, that they last pretty long and dogs love them but I haven’t tried personally yet.

our dogs love pig ears and they seem to last a bit longer.  We’ve given them raw bones even though they’re not on a raw diet.  After they’ve eaten the marrow I’ll freeze peanut butter in the center- they last a long time! I’ve also heard good things about deer antlers, but havent tried them yet.

Antlers or frozen marrow bones?  A Kong stuffed with goodies (pumpkin purée, plain yogurt, peanut butter, smashed banana, etc.) mixed with kibble and frozen?  We don’t do bully sticks or rawhide as they upset my dog’s stomach, but real raw (not ‘roasted’/’basted’) bones are great.

At the suggestion of a bunch of other bees I got my baby an elk antler about a month ago. He has massively powerful jaws and I had to stop giving him raw hides because he would eat an entire one in like a day and then get constipated. Although he doesn’t like the antler as much he still chews it, and it still looks pretty much like it did when we got it.
