I recently adopted a wondeful dog that had one of his front legs amputated due to an accident. I noticed that he doesn't seem too interested in any types of bones, due to the fact that he has a hard time holding it down and keeping it in place while he chews with just the one front paw. Does anybody have any suggestions as to products that might be available, or any tricks they may have successfully used to help keep it steady. I know that my dog likes them, but after trying so hard, I think he just gives up. I would really appreciate anything that would help this little guy.

Bless you for adopting a Tripawd!
Maybe the bones you’re trying aren’t stinky enough, like this one?
