In a goodie bag from a recent pet fair, I found a green toothbrush looking thing, about 3 inches long, that I believe was made by Greenies. It was individual, so I don't have the packaging to refer to. Is this something that my dog can eat? Or more of a chew that should be taken away after a while? I can't tell by its consistency or texture.

I will never allow Greenies to enter my home or be given to my dog - EVER.

There are stories upon stories of dogs & cats being fed Greenies who ended up choking or with impacted bowels due to the products. Also, they're nutritionally base. I've seen pictures of the thing you describe, and I think they're meant to be chewed & consumed (like a rawhide) - but (because it's a Greenie!) and because it didn't come with packaging/directions, I'd throw it out.

Greenies are mostly marketed as a "dental cleaning" product for dogs & cats, but they don't really do much. Giving your dog a raw bone to gnaw is far more effective as a "doggy toothbrush".
