Our holistic vet recommended beef trachea rings for chewing. Mindy loves it!
She's so good with it. Fil and Benny would have it ripped in half in about 30 secs LOL
She was pretty funny...she kept picking it up like that with it hooked around her lower jaw. She worked about 15 minutes like that before she broke all the way through. Then probably worked on it for another 5 minutes before it was gone.
It looks like she is really enjoying that
Just a word of warning, trachea is a nice treat but I wouldn't give too often. The thyroid is in the neck and they don't remove it when they butcher. The dogs ingest the thyroid and the hormone can damage theirs over time. I'm not saying don't feed, just not every day....
There was actually an episode of Forensic Files similar to this but it was a meat plant that was inadvertently grinding the thyroid gland with the ground beef and they were trying to figure out why so many people in town were having thyroid problems...
Wow, what I learn on Sheltie Nation! Thanks for sharing that information, Lisa!
Mindy has a stunning beautiful coat! Looks like she just got a bath!
Boy! The things you need to watch out for!! She won’t be getting it too often, anyway. She’s got a sensitive stomach and I’m pretty cautious about overloading her system.
Mine would attempt to swallow whole - amazed that she gets such enjoyment from it. She's beautiful by the way... Need more pics, more often!
You know, while Mindy has her issues, she does have some wonderful things going for her! A lovely coat, good chewing habits, quick trick learner, walks beautifully at heel when distractions aren’t present, plays really well with others and more!
Sounds like perfection to me!
