I found that Kira was still able to tear a good sized chunk off
from a pressed rawhide and swallow it (well, actually, one of our big
foster boys tore it off, and she stole it). What I now use, and Kira
really likes, are the granulated rawhide sticks from Petsmart. They cost
about $1.99 each, and are a bit more than a foot long. They come in
Natural, Beef, Chicken, Cheese, Lamb (I think) and Veggie flavors, and
crumble very easily. The one downside is that they can be eaten very
quickly. I did note in Petsmart's new ad on Sunday that they have these
on sale right now, buy one, get one free. I am heading over there to
