Is it okay for dogs to chew on sticks and tree branches

Customer Question

My dog likes to chew on sticks and small branches, should I be worried?

Unless he is actually consuming a lot of them or if he is chewing on one that could be toxic then I would not be concerned. This is a favorite thing for a lot of dogs and I can honestly say after 20 years of working for 2 vets the only thing related to this that has come in was one that came in with a stick wedged in between his teeth.
