I don't general give knuckle bones (I have a dog who cracked her tooth on one) By raw and meaty I mean more of "chicken back, pork ribs.. bones that are edible.. but take lots of chewing"

Remember how I said ANYTHING we give our dogs is potentially dangerous?

Yes I know... I just stated why I didn't. Different things are dangerous to different dogs, the whippets would never bite hard enough to chip a tooth.. but a JRT could (in this house)

Its a matter of knowing your dog.

(though its pretty hard to get into trouble with a chicken back..)

We got some small-sized dental chews from Pedigree a while back when our boxer was still a puppy, and we gave him one of those sticks. He did not want to eat for almost 2 days after that. We checked the instructions on the back, and it said only for adult dogs in small print. After that, we do not give him any of these dental products. I think that chew toys especially the ones with ropes are a good way to clean their teeth. If you want them to have that fresh mint breath, then you need to remember that it's a dog, not a human and dogs generally have no problems with their breath not smelling like mint.
