    I had a little greenie bar sitting on my table (in the plastic wrapping) and my pomeranian managed to get it and tear the wrapper off, so i just let her have it. It was probably about 5 inches big and I was sitting on the computer. I turn around less than 10 minutes later and there was only a half inch piece left. Was that really too fast? I read around and found out that greenies have can cause intestinal blockage if a big enough chunk is swallowed. I don't know how long greenies usually last but I thought it was a little too fast. Although she doesn't usually swallow food or treats without chewing them first, she looked a little excited about the greenie so I'm scared she might have.
    I tried feeling her stomach for any large bulge but didnt really feel anything.

    I'd keep an eye on her. My doxie is not allowed to have greenies because he eats them to fast.

    The person we got Manni from said that her husband is a veterinary surgeon and has seen far too many emergency surgeries caused by greenies. I never really looked into it beyond that, but that warning was daunting enough that we've never given any greenies to Manni.
