Default no plastic in new greenies. these greenies are softish

Greenies are made of very high-quality raw materials, primarily proteins that provide high elasticity. This elastic consistency is the reason for the good digestion and the reason this snack meets all the most diverse breeds. Another special characteristic is the content of chlorophyll, the green plant pigment, which provides Greenies with their unique colour and reduces the unpleasant odour of the dog's mouth.

Greenies are an ideal supplement to your dog's regular food. These tasty chews have a neutral odour and contain no artificial preservatives, colourings or flavourings.

Feeding recommendations: Greenies Dental Care Dog Snack is a complete feed.

Feed your pet one snack per day. Not suitable for young dogs under 4 months old. Consume within 14 days of opening packaging. Should be stored in a cool, dry place.

Ingredients: Vegetable by-products, meat and meat by-products, milk and dairy products, vegetable protein extracts, oils and fats, minerals, yeast, corn.

I have bought those treats before. Since they're a soft "moist" treat, I think that they're meant to be eaten right away.

Greenies is greenies and should be called killer meanies ^.^ the only thing high quality about them is their count of tummy obstructions. No matter what u read on the packaging ...its not always true. Companies make their products sound good on them and won't tell about the bad things, that's why its your job to research online like consumer reviews and see what real people have to say...and not the paid reviewers either, u can tell who is real and who is working for the company right away.

And yes the moist treats are to be eaten right away. Zukes peanutbutter treats is what my furballs,love and eat 2 a night

Was chatting to a chap at the pet store about these over the w/end & said how they killed many a dog via choking & internal obstructions until they changed the formula. He stated that it was his belief that they've still been killing a few even since the new changes so I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.

This conversation came up because I was looking at these amazing rock hard white bone shaped things that were made in Switzerland, Holland or somewhere - they're made from rice and too large for Chi's. Nonetheless they were only $1.95 ea so I thought I'd try them as I knew mine would only lick them at best. They're just the strangest things, completely odorless and sort of shiny .... a couple of the chis carry them around and lick them from time to time - one got dropped in their water bowl and it dissolved, leaving only the rice fibre behind - it's like the product is bound together with gelatin or something and then baked or whatever until it's rock hard. Wouldn't give them to my large dogs, would be worried about teeth chipping.

These seem interesting, what are they called and are they available in the UK ? After reading that the new greenies are'nt any safer than the old ones. I'm looking for a safe alternative.

I get these little hard toothbrush treats for 30 cents at the pet store here. Douglas loves them, but they're not greenies. I got one once and didn't like it- he ate it too fast and it smelled too much, I fed it in the car and the whole car smelled like a greenie.

Bones are always better though and I do buy those and bully sticks of course but he just seems to enjoy the little toothbrushes a lot and they don't make a mess (he can't have bones or bullies on the carpet.) so I do give them sometimes.

I never feed any treats if they are made in places like Mexico or china the chemicals that have been found in their treats and on their toys scare me. I only feed treats that are made in the us. Greenies have had way to much controversy around them for me to even consider feeding them.
