I read around and found out that greenies have can cause intestinal blockage if a big enough chunk is swallowed. I don't know how long greenies usually last but I thought it was a little too fast. Although she doesn't usually swallow food or treats without chewing them first, she looked a little excited about the greenie so I'm scared she might have.
I tried feeling her stomach for any large bulge but didnt really feel anything.
The person we got Manni from said that her husband is a veterinary surgeon and has seen far too many emergency surgeries caused by greenies. I never really looked into it beyond that, but that warning was daunting enough that we've never given any greenies to Manni.
