Meadow (my sister’s dog) is a champion chewer who can go through supposedly long-lasting bones/toys. Since 2019, she has been putting her chewing prowess to work to test various chew toys for this site so that we can help dog parents to choose the best toys for their own dogs.
Today, we’ll be looking at Meadow’s most recent opponent — the JW Banana Chew-ee Dental Chew Toy.
Meadow was extremely anxious to get a hold of this toy, which, according to petmate.com, lets your dog chew and have their teeth cleaned at the same time because the “no-pinch pockets on the toy can be filled with your dog’s toothpaste or a spreadable treat” and, “As your dog chews, the super-scrubber design featuring raised and recessed textured patterns clean built-up plaque from your dog’s teeth.” However, Meadow enjoyed her chew toy without any dog toothpaste or treat.
The toy, which is made of rubber and rope, help up to Meadow’s strong teeth for about a half an hour, a period of time which was quite enjoyable for Meadow but probably not as equally enjoyable for the banana. The body of the banana did stay mostly intact, but, as you can see from the picture, below, the rope part and the ends of the banana were separated. And, don’t worry, the loose pieces were thrown out so that Meadow wouldn’t choke or accidentally swallow them.

Have a suggestion for a great chew toy that you think can give Meadow a run for her money? Let us know!
We had a dog years ago that chewed mud flaps and vinyl windows.
Lol. You never know what is going to get their attention.
Go Meadow Go! That looks like chewy fun for the pups!
That was a great article. I hope you get some suggestions for chew toys!
Thank you! Me too!
