Dog greenies and cat greenies look nothing alike!
Also, I checked with my vet when the first rumors started flying around - feline greenies, in moderation, are fine, she said.
Wow, good sized cat
I have one about that size also~ Sammy is along-haired Tabby and weighs close to that as well. The other two are smaller.
I don't remember seeing any Feline greenies rumors~ only dog issues rumors. But, glad you checked up on the feline ones.
The link I posted (Dog chews) references the American Veterinary Medical Association's (AVMA), April 1, 2008 Journal and speaks on the dangers of, not only Greenies (dogs) but also other chews, so, as fara s the dog Greenies and other chews go, these were/are not rumors, but are real! <sigh> Was not sure if you were speaking about those, or if you had heard different ones about cat chews ?
Dogs died from and were also put down as a result of esophageal abstractions and the damage caused. It is so sad that it had to cause deaths! Yet one more issue with the commercial pet food arena !~
But, I am glad to hear that feline greenies are safer. I have never seen them...but personally, I would not buy them because I am angry with the company and their original denial, that nothing was wrong with them and dogs died...and although they never took responsibility, they did claim to change the formula ! That is one of the things to cause me to go UMMMM! DUH!
