Do NOT Feed Greenies To Your Boston Terrier (or Frenchie, Doberman, etc.)


We all love our Bostons and want to spoil them and take good care of them, right? We trust our veterinarians to only recommend what is "good" or "healthy" for our pets. Most vets offer a green toothbrush shaped dental treat called "Greenies" in their offices. We just assume that since our Veterinarian recommends it, it must be good, Right??? WRONG, in fact, in may cases, DEAD WRONG.

Many of you already read my other blog, Whole Dog News or have heard online or even on the local news that Greenies are NOT a "smart" treat at all!

I have lots of stories and information at the Whole Dog News Blog but, I wanted to share this recent news story with you today. Here is the link to KROI TV's story " Dog Treat May Carry Danger" http://www.kirotv.com/investigations/5325021/detail.html A video clip of the show that aired is available to watch there as well.

If you want to give your Bostons a "smart" treat, give them an all natural, raw (yes I said raw!) marrow or knuckle bone that will not splinter, break off in chunks, cause blockages and guess what? It is 100% digestible! :-)

I stopped giving them to my dogs after reading about them on your other blog. Also please beware of kongs - once it starts getting pitted you need to get a new one. I know of a dog that died because a little piece of the pitted surface got lodged in his intestines. It could have been a freak accident but why take a chance?

ARM YOURSELF WITH KNOWLEDGE- THINK TWICE ABOUT THESE "TREATS" THAT HAVE PROVED DEADLY FOR MANY DOGS.

DO NOT GIVE YOUR DOGS GREENIES--------GREENIES HAVE KILLED DOGS------IT IS NOT WORTH LOSING YOUR BEST FRIEND OVER A CHEWIE!
