I picked Zody up a cow hoof at the pet shop today, they usually last him weeks to months depending on how long he chews on them, so I didn't mind the $2 this one cost. It was wrapped in plastic, made in the USA, and the only thing I could find special about it was that it was smoked.... Maybe that was the problem. Y'all are wondering what the problem is right? Well Zody, my 10lb chihuahua x dachshund was managing to bite off large chunks of it. When he first did it I thought that maybe it was one piece of it that was already fractured, but nope, the whole dang thing was like that. Unless a person has a dog that is toothless or has exceptionally weak jaws I do not recommend they buy Grillers Smoked Cows Hoofs for them. In no more then 20 min he managed to do this, and there were a few pieces that I threw away before I decided to take the picture...
