My Chihuahua loves them, kept her busy for nearly 5 hours
Jul 5, 2011
We have two Chihuahua's. One is 12 years old now she won't chew on toys, rawhides or bones of any sort. It was no big surprise that she wouldn't touch it. My other Chihuahua is only 2 years old and will chew on almost any type of rawhide or bone. Over the long 4th of July weekend she was driving us crazy because she wouldn't stop barking and growling at all the fireworks. She is scared to death of fireworks and will shake like crazy and go nuts. So I decided to give her one of these to keep her busy for a while.
She loved it and wouldn't put it down for nearly 5 hours. She pretty much ignored the fireworks for the rest of the night and went to town on devouring the MiniCongo. Occasionally she would decide to take a break and walk away but she wouldn't take her eye off it. If I would walk near it or our other dog would approach it then she would pounce on it and guard it with her life. She seemed to really love the peanut butter filling inside because she kept trying to lick inside before chewing the beefhide.
About a month ago we gave her a Purina Busy Bone which is similar to this and she loved it as well. It has filling in the middle too. The difference is the Busy Bone really upset her stomach for 24 hours or so and the MiniCongo didn't.
Don't be fooled by Mini in the name because these are still quite large. It is probably too big for our Chihuahua but that didn't stop her. I am happy to give these to my dog because they do a good job of cleaning their teeth. The more chewing they do now, the better their dental health will be when they get older.
It sounds like a good product to try. This sounds like an excellent food tonic, as long as the ingredients are all or mostly natural. Papain enzyme sounds like a good health tonic . Is this an organic product? Peanut butter flavored treats sounds like an artificial color additive already. Who knows?
