Q: Are the greenies safe for dogs?

I've heard conflicting answers, my dogs love them but I'm afraid they splinter in the intestines

I stopped giving them since they are not entirely digestible. Also, I have had 2 clients whose dogs required surgery since the pieces got stuck in their intestines.

My greyhound, Danny loved greenies but would puke them up so I quit buying them entirely. There are other natural chewing items, even roasted beef bones, that are less expensive and easier to digest. Just my opinion.

I used to buy the chewy petite greenies but my little boy got one stuck on his back teeth and it was quite the challenge to remove it.I have since stopped giving my babies greenies.
