Default Cow Hoof for Husky

Noleeka the little Husky puppy got a little cow hoof from Petco today! Are these safe, or are they the same as rawhides?

I did pick up a bully stick, mom asked what it was. I told her a bully stick. She asked what a bully stick was. I told her Beef 'pizzle'. She asked what 'pizzle was', and of course I told her what it was.

She nearly fainted and snapped it out of my hand and put it back, lol. She said 'letting a dog chew on a bull's private part is just plain wrong and animal abuse'. I can understand she may be freaked out, but seriously... you think WOLVES care? lol

Anyway, as for the hoof, I got her this one: Pet Carousel Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Choo-Hoove Dog Chew at PETCO

Bully sticks are very healthy.

It is just dried meat, high in minerals. The squeamishness is a human creation.

I hope you can get her to cave on the bully sticks, they're good. I don't know much about hooves.

The cow hooves that you buy in the pet store are likely filled with chemicals or dyes. They are also quite hard, so it depends on what kind of chewer you have and whether or not they chew hard enough to chip a tooth. If it were me, I would stick to the bully sticks. Maybe it's because I don't eat meat, but to me an animal part is an animal part. The cow was once walking around breathing and needed all of its body parts to live. Penis, hoof, ear, thigh muscle... what's the difference?

Hmmm. 'Cow' and 'Penis' do not belong in the same paragraph. And, seriously, bully sticks can apparently become extremely odoriferous after being chewed upon for a while.

Oops! Meant cattle. The bully sticks we buy have very low odor and are made locally.

Was the cow hoof wrapped? I would never buy anything that wasn't wrapped & the cow hoofs have been known to break teeth. I would do bully sticks but my chi don't chew. She carries & hides.

Yeah it was wrapped. It's not a whole hoof, it's a small half of one. She seems to be doing fine with it, she doesn't chew extremely hard.
