raw hide

Hi! Charlie is now 11 months and still into the chewing thing so I took the advice and gave him rawhide. Chewing and mouthing has decreased tremendously, but now he has diarreah! Any suggestions on the type of rawhide, i.e. flavored, unflavored etc? I am not sure what to do at this point. Don't know which is better to deal with :D Suggestions anyone?

we occasionally give kumo a cow's ear rather than rawhide -- they don't disintegrate and get all stuck in his fur like the rawhide did, and they also don't get all smelly and slimy like pig's ears.

our local vet dentist cautioned us about nylabones. he said that the clear, flexible, "gumma" ones are ok, but that he gets many cases of dogs coming in with broken teeth from chewing on the hard nylabones. apparently rubber chew toys give, and natural bones will crack and break -- but the nylabones don't.

fortunately for us, kumo isn't a super-chewer :)
