Default Himalayan Dog Chews

So, how long do they actually last? And do they smell?

It takes my dogs a decent amount of time to get through bully sticks... and their antlers have lasted forever.

I want to order one for each of my dogs, but I don't want them to eat through them in like 10 minutes.

I buy them at cost at my work. My dogs LOVE them and it takes my dogs a few days to chew through theirs. They don't smell super bad in the way bully sticks do in my opinion.. but ya they are a huge hit with my dogs.

Just curious, Skittle--what is the cost on these things?

Lucy chews through bully sticks (the thick, 6" ones) in about 5-10 minutes. Her extra large antler was the size of a pencil after a few weeks. I'm hesitant to spend $9+ on something that may only last an hour, but I suppose I should try it once and find out!

Finn plowed through one in about an hour, and he's only a moderate chewer.

Bleh. That's disappointing

They definitely last longer than bully sticks, IMO!

Jackson was never TOO interested in them. He would often just take it from me, walk around whining with it in his mouth, and then maybe chew on it a bit but he always lost interest after not even getting through half of it.

They are hard as a rock, so I can't let him have one for a little while. After his dental surgery, he can't have anything too hard until after Christmas (don't wanna knock that $1300 filling out, LOL) so I won't be buying them anytime soon.

My dogs love them. They are HARD but mine plow through them in about 20 minutes.

I have had different sucesses.
The ones in the packets with the solid colored labels lasted maybe 30 minutes.
My local pet store sells some loose and they lasted a day.
And then I won a few that were in vacuum packaging and those lasted about 2 days.

The one I got Kaylee was the largest hardest that the petstore had and it lasted maybe 15 minutes for her.

I got one for Zuma the other day, no odor, but it only lasted a couple hours for her. Better than a bully stick in my opinion... mostly cuz it doesn't smell like butt.
