I guess I did not mention that my vet has checked her teeth, and suggested a cleaning and brushing them. As I mentioned, I would like to not have to have them cleaned, where she would be put under to do it. So I guess I am looking for other options. I tried brushing them and as I mentioned she just throws up for the gagging and I am not even going that far back on her teeth. She just doesn't like it.
The butcher bones could be an answer (thank you). Once in awhile Abby will chew on a nylabone (but not often enough). I agree, if someone with a smaller breed could suggest types of butcher bones that would be good for her as well as hold her attention.
If I give her and Pella something to chew on, she will mostly walk around with it in her mouth to tease Pella, it is like she really doesn't want it but she knows Pella does. Pella has always been a good chewer, but Abby never picked up on it. Hopefully, someone can recommend a bone that will get her attention and clean her teeth.
