    DefaultBully stick alternative?

    Anyone have a good alternative to bully sticks? The vet told us today that they are probably the culprit of Clarence's tummy issues and to avoid them. He's loves them and I know will be very sad not to have them anymore, so we need to find him something else to chew on for extended periods of time that won't bother his tummy. Anything good out there?

    Marrow (soup) bones raw. The first few times take them away after about 15 minutes since the marrow is very rich and can cause the runs in the beginning although my Nellie never had a problem. Also make sure the openings at the ends are not so large that your pup can get his jaw caught in the bone.

    We give Fergus marrow (soup) bones as well. What about a Kong...do you have one of those?? We fill Fergus's up with plain yogurt & mashed banana & plug both ends with peanut butter and then throw it in the freezer. When they're frozen they last quite a while and most dogs love them! There is also a bunch of recipes online for other Kong fillings other then the yogurt & banana!

    Oooo, Clarence would love the yogurt/banana/peanut butter combo. He has several Kongs that he likes. Definitely going to try that out! His tummy seems better after a few days of rice and hamburger. Thanks for the suggestions!
