After just about exhausting my bank account purchasing toys for my teething Tojo whose either not interested in them or has chewed on them to the point of actually ingesting them, I found the perfect household items. A heavy duty plastic straw (which I remove after he chews it to a certain point) or a zip tie tightly wrapped around a wine cork! Now if I could just keep my big dog away from them . I notice Tojo seems to be esp. desperate to chew on something in the late evenings. His poor gums must be so sore bcuz when I look in his mouth- half his teeth are gone!!!.
