set of teeth.

number of other toys available from squeaky ducks to Ball's, Be careful when selecting one
of these products that they have been design especially for the age of your dog.
Children's toys will not be suitable, as a dog may chew off an nose or a push in eye, and
Even the best designed toys
for children can be reduced to shreds by a strong young pup. Make sure that any ball you

The Hercules is a dental device made from very strong
polyurethane. As well as helping to keep the dogs teeth in good condition,
it also serves as a pacifier.
The raised dental tips on each bone helps control plaque in
the Westie's teeth.
||Hard bones are much better than soft bones for Westie's.
These Nylabones(R) have been proven to be safe for many years. They have been
designed so that they break down in the stomach fluids and pass through without
effect. The toughness of the nylon provides strong chewing resistance. and provides
good jaw exercise, and aids teething.
Germs cannot grow on the nylon which is inert. The bone can be washed
or sterilised in boiling water.
The bone is frizzled by the dog creating a toothbrush type surface that
cleans the teeth and gums.
They are also available impregnated with chocolate. Yummy... Bobby
