  • I would not recommend them, but I don't give my guys anything like that

    Are cow hooves ok for 8 week old puppies?


    I don't like the cow hooves either… they can splinter and they can break the teeth of an adult Basenji.... and look out if you ever step on one with bare feet...
    I would stick to nylabones or things like the bully sticks..

  • Zoey had two broken teeth when I got her–I think it was from cow hooves....I won't use them at all either.

  • Ok. Thanks for the input. I'll go find some more Nylabones. Do you prefer the edible or just the regular and puppy nylabones?

  • For puppies they do well with the regular ones… I like the ones with the nibbs on them the ones that look like they have little spikes in them..gggg
    They are good for teething...
    And I still like the bully bones too...

  • I will give puppies cow hooves but not after the adult teeth come in. I have had dogs crack teeth on those things and I just won't give them anymore.

  • I'm in the "I've had dogs chip teeth on them" camp too. And the "It hurts like he77 when you step on them" camp. And they stink.
