Leya ate Thor's Greenie (for dogs)!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Do you think this is ok, or should I worry??? I thought about calling the number on the back, but I figured they would say their products are fine for all animals.

Thor is a tiny baby Chihuahua so the greenie was for toy breeds, and VERY small, but next thing I know I see Leya playing with something and it was half of the greenie.....Thor's still to small to eat it so he didn't eat anything of it, just chews on it. Leya REALLY likes it though. I have it put up now.

Anyone know anything about these Greenies, the indregients didn't look like anything bad to me????

Should be fine. I'm sure there are many people here who have had to deal with their cats stealing treats and even food from dogs.

I would monitor eating, drinking, and excreting very carefully for the next several days. Some dogs have had occasional problems with Greenies get caught in the intestines, so I would be concerned that something like that *could* happen with your kitty. As long as Leya doesn't show any signs of a blocakge, I think she'll be fine, but watch her for a couple of days.

the new greenies are made much more digestable but DO CALL the 800 number cause dog greenies ARE WAY different than cat

FYI dogs under 5lbs or/ and six months old SHOULD NEVER have GREENIES

I get Greenies for the dog and the cats. IMO they are probably the same thing but in bigger or smaller sizes. I'm sure the cat will be fine

Really Sharky - what's the difference in the two of them?

The dog ones are a long-lasting dental chew, the cat ones are just biscuit type treats. I think the main danger with the dog Greenies is choking, or swallowing a too-large piece that causes an internal blockage. IMO your cat probably will be fine.
