Rated 4 out of 5 by Mandy Pretty good, but thin..
I ordered 10 of these ribs for my 2 pitbulls, but honestly I don't think I will buy them again.. I think I will stick with Merrick's knuckles. These ribs are great, dont get me wrong, but due to the nature of ribs, they are a bit thin and fracture in lengthwise shards when chewed and crunched on. My dog ate one in an hour.... so yea, if you have heavy-duty chewers, I say get Merrick's Tank knuckle bones instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Garzmax Better ribs than a famous restaurant
These ribs are so large and full of delicious morsels of meat, my 3 ridgebacks flip over them.
One word of caution, they do splinter and I'm sure it's only because my dogs are LARGE almost giant size so I feel they are more suited for med size or slightly larger but for sure not for giant dogs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueWolf The rib isn't good for strong chewers.
My dogs love all these Merrick bones, however my 10 pound Havanese mix chewed through one of the rib bones. She's had several, but that one she chewed right off the end. The ribs are fine for my other dog who doesn't chew anything, but likes the beef flavor on this brand. Made in the U.S.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wolfy loved it, but didn't last long
Our 55lb dog loved this treat, but he was done with it in no time. Next time I'm making sure to get 3 or 4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PibbleLover Not for a powerful chewer
I have 2 powerful chewers and these bones started splintering after a few minutes. I won't buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jen80 Dog enjoyed but I did not
My dog enjoyed the bone. But it splintered and she chewed threw it like candy. I found sharp pieces all over that had to pick up. It also made a mess and crumbled all over the carpet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lisfreese Dogs like ribs, too.
My dogs were sniffing the cardboard box the second I pulled it in off the porch. The ribs come wrapped in plastic but they could smell them! The "beef jerky" on the bone is just leftover meat sticking to the rubs, it didn't last more than 3 minutes. But the dogs enjoy chewing on the ribs long after the meat is gone.
If you have white rugs, you might want to skip this product or put down a towel, the ribs are a little messy and very greasy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pam13 Great chewy treat
I give one of these ribs as a chewy treat after a good training session. The outer layer gets eaten immediately and the bony rib is savored over a few days. I would give this an excellent, but I do have to pick up bone shards so the pup won't swallow them whole. They cause no tummy upset and my 8 month old puppy love them.
