Q: Is it safe to give our Rottie Pup the cardboard empty toilet paper rolls to chew on?

She is teething & loves to chew on things. 1 day I threw an empty toilet paper roll on the floor for her. I have done this several times now as she bags for them. I pick up what's left of it after she's bored & it's in a small mush mess on the floor. I don't think she eats much of it. I just wonder maybe this is bad but I am not sure. Does anyone else do this? Is it Ok or safe for a Rottie pup to chew on & possibly eat up small mushy pieces of it as she chews it?

I think all dogs love to chew on paper tubes but you do not want them to swallow the paper, it can cause serious problems. Get a Kong, put some peanut butter in it and the puppy will love to chew on this. Kong is the best toy for all of my Rotts, it is the only thing they can't destroy.

I personally wouldn't let my dog chew on it. You never know what the dog is actually swallowing. If you love your dog, you would be sure to give him safe products to chew on.

I am pretty sure it is safe for them since it dissolves into small pieces in their stomach. My dogs continually eats the toilet paper and anything they can find in the recycling bucket. As long as they don't get into the plastics you should be good, but try to break them of the habit if you can.
