Merrick offers Moozles – a beef snout chew for dogs.
Another snack from Merrick that doesn’t last as long as one could hope and leaves you with a sense of did I just do the right thing.
Entertainment Value/Enjoyment(Me: 2/10, Lilo: 7/10): Same as with the pigs ear, Lilo was super excited about something that was very clearly the nose of a cow and then promptly destroyed it in a manner of seconds. I’m glad she was so happy but I’m sad the staying power was so low.
Smell(8/10): There’s no real smell to this from what I recall, nothing strong at least. The visuals are what are there to remind you of the origin of this piece.
Per Day Limit: Once again consult your vet and I’d stick to not giving more than one of these a day.
Training Potential(1/10): Only so many tricks can be offered before they’ll need to drool on this and, unless you can handle wet cow nose, you don’t want to keep holding it.
Cost: I paid about $2.50 for this one at the store where I used to live. That was on sale from about $5.00 however. Haven’t seen them outside of Southern Ontario though they do originate in the USA so if you can find them there they’ll probably be cheaper.
Bottom Line: This could be a fun chew for your pup if you can stomach it and are willing to throw the cash out to get it. I’d personally rather stick to something a little less real and expensive, or at least something that lasts a bit longer.
