It was huge, stunk to high heaven and none of us could believe that it didn't look any different than when it was swallowed. They kept it to show other clients the dangers of greenies.

From what I understand, they're less dangerous but worse for them ingredients wise.

I give my dogs the Zukes Ridges and they do completely digest. As with all ingestable bones/chewies, they can be a choking hazzard so I always supervise.
Herschel loves those!! And if you give the carrot Z-ridges then you'll see that there is evidence that they digest...

By the way, the new Greenies are chewy. I never fed one of the old ones but I believe they were harder? Herschel polished off a new one within 5 minutes. It came free in the mail, but I would never buy them.

I know right? When my dogs get them their poops totally change. They get an almost chalky appearence (like with real bone), so I feel much more comfortable with them.....still with supervision.
