Boodha bones

Postby PitFriend » Tue Jan 01, 2008 4:55 pm

Are these things decent chew products? A better alternative to rawhide? They're made primarily of corn starch and are marketed as "highly digestible." (Ingredients: cornstarch, water, glycerin, sorbitol, powdered cellulose, dried yeast hydrolysate, lecithin, calcium stearate, sorbic acid, color added,natural flavor).

I bought some for the girls today and they loved em. Even my old lady, whose teeth and gums have seen better days and generally doesn't like to chew on stuff anymore. I always supervise chew time, and I took the bones away when the girls worked them down to swallow-able sized nubs. Sooo, yay or nay?

Veronica used to love them; and she didn't scarf them down like she does the bully sticks.

Unfortunately, her allergy testing came back positive for corn... :frown:

Aw, poor Veronica. :sad: I'm not sure about the corn for Riley either, since she seems to be sensitive, if not allergic.

My girl Is HIGHLY allergic to corn, yet has no problem with cornstarch :huh?: Maybe because whatever irritates her with regular corn is processed out in cornstarch?
My dogs love them

I got those a long time ago, and they gave Maui the runs...darn dog is sensitive to everything. I don't remember them lasting very long, either...but I could be thinking of something else.

Thanks guys! Yeah, they went pretty fast.. maybe I'll get a bigger size next time. lol Downie had a gurgly tummy last night so I'm thinking these will be an occasional treat.

We love Booda Bones here. They're an occasional treat, but I love that there's no odor or staining.

I used to get them for my dogs, but they'd make them barf some of the time.
They really liked them, so maybe they just ate them too fast.

Moxy loved them, and I did like them vs Rawhides...but like the movie they were "gone in 60 secconds!" so they really don't last long enough for them to be economical IMO
