Re: Attn PetsMart Shoppers...


Thanks Daryl, our faithful watchdog _^..^_ we appreciate it.

"...Greenies packaging warns dog owners to monitor their dog to ensure the treat is adequately chewed. "Gulping any item can be harmful or even fatal to a dog," the package says...The only time dogs would be unable to digest anything would be if they didn't chew it up before they swallowed it. Canine and Feline Greenies are highly digestible when chewed."

So how many of you parents have had to tell your kids to really chew their food - and did they listen? Sometimes. Now try this with your pet. One of my cats is a vaccuum when it comes to canned food; another inhales hard treats. The other 2 just lick everything til it's gone. I have suggested chewing where needed; none of them listens to me. If you are aware of such behaviors in your pets, you don't give them the kinds of treats that could cause problems. I break up he hard treats for the one that bolts them. I hold back canned food from the feline vaccuum, doling it out a bit at a time to try to get him to slow down.

Good to know if we ever get one out here.  I'm about 50 miles from the
nearest one.
