Just wondering if these are actually healthy to give the pups? I see a lot about them lately and will be ordering some through doggyloot but i have always been told not to give my dogs cows milk as they dont digest it. And since made with cows milk yak milk salt and lime juice.....i just wondered. Im looking for other chews besides the bones they have already. We plan on getting some bully sticks also.

Sounds interesting, how are they on the smell factor? I want to include my sisters pup in new treats but being pregnant right now my sister cant take some strong smells without being sick.

I give himalayan chews to my furkiddies! If I'm not mistaken, they are fully digestible and I have not had an issue. I prefer them over rawhides and bully sticks. Rawhides can cause blockage, however, others have given rawhides without issue. My female is picky on chews and she does not care for any bullysticks, ears, hooves or antlers, but himalayan chews are one that she loves, and it does not have an odor to them.

Yep, Himalayan chews are absolutely healthy and safe treats to give.

There are different sizes.
How long it will last will depend on how aggressive your pup is in chewing.

I get mediums for my 2 and they last about 20 minutes or so...

I'll have to see if any stores around me carry the catfish skins thanks! Definetly be ordering the himalayan chews then , hopefully they like them! No rawhides here i just dont trust them, one of my other dogs would always puff up and be constipated for a few days after getting one so we stopped giving them. Bella's getting bored with just her bone and hated when i filled it with peanut butter, Jasper doesnt really chew the bone loved the peanut butter filling but went after bella for hers after he finished his so i wont do that again. We're thinking of trying antlers next but im paranoid about the size so im waiting until i can get two gaint ones.
