BULLDOGS AND RAWHIDE DO NOT MIX
We want to spread a word of caution about feeding your Bulldogs Rawhide! These include Pig ears, Rawhide sticks and hooves. Rawhide is an extremely dangerous chewy for a Bulldog; while they love them their life is always at risk when you give them Rawhide, yes even under your supervision!
Bulldogs have a tendency to Chew the Rawhide making it soft and slimy they then will inhale the whole piece causing obstruction, foaming at the mouth then this will cause them to collapse from lack of oxygen into their lungs weather you are or not experience with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR on a dog it is not worth the risk giving your Bulldren Rawhide.
CAUTION FOR GREENIES
Please use severe caution with the chew bones called "Greenies" for years we have always placed caution about these as they can cause severe diarrhea, bloat and are a severe chocking hazard! Although they are said to be 100 percent digestible they are NOT many do not realize that Canine digestion is very different than human digestion; they do not have the digestive chemical breakdown like humans do. The veterinary journal now shows compressed vegetable chew treats, of which
Greenies is the most popular sold, are now the third biggest cause of
esophageal obstruction in dogs behind bones, rawhide and fish hooks. In my opinion they should be pulled from the shelves! To many precious dogs have lost their life chewing these now.
RECOMMENDED CHEWING FOR YOUR BULLDOGS
Have plenty of hard nylon chew bones for them to chew in a variety of shapes and sizes. The Nylabone Durachews are a good one and they last a long time. ONLY GET NYLABONES FOR POWERFUL CHEWERS.
Highly Recommended Chew bones for your Bulldog
Deer Antlers are being sold in most pet shops now and most of our Bulldogs Love Them! They are one of the most expensive chews on the market they start at around $10.00 for small and up to $60.00 for the bigger ones (we do recommend larger antlers for bulldogs) . They make excellent dog chews because they are made of a bony material and so are hard, long-lasting, interesting to the dog and not smelly or staining. They are similar in hardness to a Nylabone, but tastier and healthier. Not all Bulldogs will appreciate chewing antlers the most are young puppies and Bulldogs that just love to chew! Antler chews are also full of nutrients such as calcium.
like any dog chew it is important to be careful and to supervise your Bulldog. Here are a few tips to help your Bully to enjoy the antler chew and keep him or her safe.
*Make sure your antler dog chew is large enough so that there is no possibility that your Bulldog could choke on it. The come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
*Check your antler chew over for any possible sharp edges. If there are any, it is easy to remove them by rubbing the sharp edge with sandpaper or I have done this with a nail file.
* You can clean and Wash the antler chew in warm, soapy water and rinse well.
*Make sure your Bulldog is gnawing on the antler instead of trying to break the antler chew in half. If he is bearing down hard on the antler, it is best to take it away since chewing any hard chew this way could damage the teeth.
*Take the the antler chew away from your Bully once it gets worn down to a small enough size that they could swallow and choke on it.
*If your Bulldog is not showing interest in the Antler you could try rubbing it with a small amount of peanut butter or soaking it overnight in water in the refrigerator which I have done and they seem more keen to chew after I do this!
