Do NOT allow your pet to chew on anything unless it has some “give” to it because that might prevent breaking a tooth. You should actually be able to indent the surface with your fingernail. Among other things, give no animal bones, no antlers, no hooves and no hard plastic or hard nylon bones.

But there are a lot of toys and chewing items that are bad for dogs, particularly organic bones. "Rib bones are no-nos," he said. "Cow and beef hooves are bad — they can fracture their teeth chewing on those." Pig ears can cause pets to get an upset stomach, because they are so greasy.

Like bones and other hard chew toys, cow hooves pose the dual dangers of breaking your dog's teeth or splintering, which could lead to puncture injuries of your dog's mouth or digestive tract.
