How about a Chewfah Loofah Bone?

Fighting Plaque and Dog Breath—the Fun Way!
Great dental hygiene in a fun package for dogs! Toss, chew, tug, or retrieve, the all natural material of our Zanies Chewfah Loofah Toys adds interest while cleaning teeth and gums to keep any pet healthy.

Fun bone shape in two sizes lets every good dog have his play.

Chewfah Loofah Bones are available in the colors and sizes listed below.

•Available in Assorted Colors
•Two sizes available: 6 inch long and 8 inch long

My Happy Customers:

"Sissy was so enthralled with HER package, and now, won’t part with her new yellow bone.

She toted it around the deck. She gnawed on it on the deck. She took it on a rapid tour of the house, and then plopped down on her favorite blankie and chewed on it there. She thought she’d take it for a tour of her yard (it’s all hers, you know), but I stopped that notion, because I know that one deer later and the beloved bone would be dropped, only to have a very sad puppy girl beg me to search for it later tonight, probably in the dark, in the rain, in the woods…"

I have them for a good price $4.00 ( 6 inch) $5.00 (8 inch)

Hope this helps!

Something I suggest is in the Pet stages brand. I don't know what the toy is clled but you freeze it overnight and then it feels really good on their gums. They come in all sizes, so I think it will wrk for your dog.

I got my dog what I think is called nylabone. It looks like hard plastic but it's not. It's recommended for their teeth. Mine has stopped chewing on everything else as long as she has this bone. I got mine at a drugstore. I believe they also have them at Walmart and they run about $4.00. It sure saves a lot of destruction on other things.

I used nylabones for my dogs. They are hard but are safe for dogs to chew. There is also a Galileo bone that is really hard but safe to chew. I'm not sure how small they make the Galileo bones. You can find the Galileo and Nylabones at just about any pet store.

We use the Kong toys for our Lab. She can chew anything up in seconds. These last for quite a while. They come in all sizes, you can get them at Petco and Wal-Mart and I have even seen them at Publix.
