Merrick "The Tank Meaty Bones" ??

I normally get Eva & Spock & Lillah Merrick "Corporal (Knee) Caps" for chews which last them about 30 minutes of brief, but intense enjoyment. They can chew them down to a small size and we take them away so they don't try to swallow remnant. Little Lillah likes to steal these caps from the Dobes if they get distracted, then stash in her chair dog bed (her "lair") !

I order them by the case on internet as they are MUCH cheaper than the pet store prices. Merrick Corporal Cap Kneecap Bones Dog Bones & Hooves

To get to the point, on my last order I decided to try out some Merrick "The Tank Meaty Bone" beef knuckle bone chews.

I figured they would be larger than the kneecaps.....well boy, was was I WRONG!!

My wife called me and said Tank Meaty Bones were "the size of PIG'S HEADS!"

She has been known to exaggerate sometimes...

Question- Has anyone on DT ever or routinely given their Dobies these type of mammoth knuckle bones what were the results??

Nubis loves those things.
Just b careful if they drop them beside your feet as the weight will certsinly break a toe or two.
Also be carefull whe they get smaller from the gnawing. Nubis boroughed a hook into one and then it got stuck on his lower jaw. Once I see him getting close I turf it out.
But since he got pancreatis last week I am wondering if they helped in anyway.

Nubis (Anubis), 3 times a charm.

Mabel gets big knuckles about 3lbs in weight and the size of a softball and a half.
She also gets beef bones a foot long or so and elk denies roughly 2ft long. The bigger the better for her lol. But like nubis said watch your feet lol

I want to try the saddles next.
