    Are there any doggie toys out there that squeak when bit but are fully edible? My dog loves the damn things, but he always eats them and then I gotta pull strings of toy fiber out of his asshole.

    They don't squeak but you could try Nylabones and Gumabones.

    I don't give my dog squeak toys, but I'm unaware of an edible version.

    My dog loves chewing on a stuffed Kong.

    We stuff a kong with kibble and peanut butter and the dog loves it. We also have deer antler, which is the best chew toy going, they don't stink or get slimy and last for ages.

    yeah, nylabone makes some bone toys that are fully edible...i think you'll find though, that anything that is made to be eaten will be finished WAY quicker than any of the toys whose fibers you pull out of their buts

    i also do the kong thing with kibble and peanut butter

    Why does this sound so wrong?

    I don't think anything with a squeaker is going to be fully edible, since the squeakers themselves are made of plastic.

    Your best bet is to find a more durable toy (some Kong toys have squeakers in them), or as others said, go with a nylabone or something that is fully edible but of course won't contain a squeaker.

    I'll second the deer antler. My dog loves 'em.

    Jmac's right. No such thing as a chewable/edible squeaky toy.

    lol man.

    classic.

    i got a puppy too and he eats everything. im constantly yanking stuff from his mouth hole.

    we use dog bones that are filled with marrow, but we only give him them when we need provate time. the things cost like $10 each, but the dog loves them and it can keep him busy for hours.

    Deer antler and Bully stick (it's a penis but dogs love them) are great and kongs are also great. Squeak toys should never be left alone with a dog. You are asking for impaction or gastric torsion both of which can costs thousands at the vet.

    False.

    Think of it this way: If you had a gigantic 250 lb dog, he would be a handful to play with. If you had a gigantic 250 lb cat, he would kill and eat you instantly.

    Not true necessarily, Buddhist monks play with tigers and nothing happens

    well, i mean...saying you have a cat as a pet, is kind of like saying the squirrel in your tree in the backyard is your pet

    so yeah, of course dogs are more trouble and have more heartache when they have health problems and stuff...but they are still better companions

    Thanks for the tips. I've given my dog an antler before. He likes it, but man he loves those chew toys and I want something I can play tug of war with.





    i like cats too actually, but I love dogs :) And you're right, nothing is gonna make me think cats>dogs. Unless they're siberian tigers. those might be > than dogs.

    Like others said maybe just try the interactive Kong toys. I can't think of anything else. I work at a pet store but I'm out of town right now. I'll see if we have something like that when I get back

    As far as edible treats I like the paragon treats and bully sticks
