The flossies I bought arrived and seem very big...can I cut them? I handed it to Rocky and although he loves it, it seems a waste to give him such a big one. Anyone using these?
Be careful with the flossies.. I have one dog who chews and chews, but I often have to go and pull it out of her mouth because she has the whole long gommy string in her mouth and I'm afraid she might choke if she swallowed it.. Better to cut them in half I think..That being said, my dogs adore them...
Just be careful with the flossies that he doesn't chew off a lot of that gooey white stuff (which is what happens to the flossies when they do chew it a lot). I wouldn't let Tyler swallow it as I've read that it can cause digestive problems. :huh: So I always supervise his chewing them. The other night I didn't realize he had it and he started trying to cough something up and little bits of white started flying out of his mouth.:w00t: They really were choking him. I ended up taking it away and won't give it back unless I'm watching. When he gets them really soft I take them away and cut that part off with a scissors.
Thanks for the warnings guys...when I looked at the flossie again, my little boy Rocky had it half chewed (it's 8 inches long) and the white part hanging! Now I'm nervous, so I'll be watching him instead of relaxing like I thought I would be. Better I know now and be safe than sorry. :thumbsup: Next time I'll try Crystal's.I got some flossies from Crystal's shop and they don't get that gooey white string on them like the Merricks do, for some reason. I cut my in half as a whole one is just too big for us. Also with the Merricks, for some reason, they make bisou burp (gross, I know).
