I think all of that stuff depends on your dog's digestive system. Just like rawhides, some dogs cant tolerate them while others can. If your dogs are okay with them, then it should be fine.

as a puppy raiser for NEADS (www.neads.org) i was instructed to never give a greenie to the pups...
one of our raisers was in church with her assigned pup and gave her a greenie to keep her busy during the service...after a few minutes there was this horrible wretching sound and the pup had the whole greenie lodged in it's throuat, it was quick thinking that they performed a puppy hymlick (sp) on her and got the greenie out...
i would supervise the pup carefully, often they chew it up and they end up with a big piece that they swallow, this sits in the stomach and will cause further problems as it does not digest quickly and can cause blockage of the colon...please supervise pups and dogs well when they have any sort of treats like these...best wishes
