Cow Hooves

Post by LyndaW on Fri May 02, 2014 7:01 pm

I give Kuchar cow hooves from PAH as an occasional treat. When he's eaten the stuffing they put in them, the hooves are recycled as treats stuffed with cheese. But he does chew bits off the edges - is this dangerous? Your opinions would be appreciated.

The boys can easily eat whole hooves Lynda, i buy them empty and stuff with mince and freeze. As long as he's not chewing massive bits off and swallowing that bit whole then no i see no problem, they are similar to a dog eating raw bones happy

Thank heavens for that Ella, thank you! It is so difficult to find a chewy treat that will entertain Kuchar for longer than 5 minutes. And no, he doesn't eat the whole hoof, just breaks little bits off the edges.

The only problem with cow hooves usually involves the type and treatment the products received prior to distribution; cow hooves have on occasion been known to cause damage to teeth, but that's been with unsupervised chewing with dogs that really aren't suited to cow hooves. Same goes with some stag bars though, so it just depends on the dog. happy

Thank you Ella - half the price of PAH hooves, and I've no idea what they stuff into them but it doesn't last 45p's worth! Also, I'm not sure how PAH treat the hooves.

Plus, PAH hooves are mostly black, which is much harder than white hooves.

Thank you for advice too, Eleanor. I bought Kuchar a new stag bar today - he wasn't terribly keen on his old one, but chews it occasionally. Todays stag bar is a much bigger one with loads of marrow (or whatever is inside them) so I hoped it would be more interesting. It lies in the middle of the room - sniffed but otherwise unmolested. Grrrrr

Dempsey did go off the ordinary stag bars for a while, but then we got him a fallow deer antler & he loved it!

I'll bear it mind Caryll, thank you. Not willing to lash out another heap of shekels for something that may well lie disregarded in my living room just now!
