My 3 dogs.2 greyhounds...

My 3 dogs.2 greyhounds and a hound mix got into a box of Nutri Dent nylon dental chews (16 in box) and I don't know who ate how many. Don't know if this could cause problems and whether I should forego feeding them dinner.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Greyhounds are Beauty & Star both 5 years old. Hound mix Sadie is 9 years old. All weigh 52-54 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Beauty, Star & Sadie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

All are in good health.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

One question- are these designed to be eaten and swallowed or just chewed on?

They are dental chews for cleaning teeth...meant to be eaten

Great news.

My labs did this kind of stuff all the time- uggh!

Watch for vomiting or distension of stomach or abdominal discomfort

Give water in limited amounts at one time.

Do not feed them tonight.

Update me in AM

Make sense?

No vomiting and they don't appear to be uncomfortable. Should I be concerned if they haven't pooped. They ate them around noon

No you should not be concerned.
