Nylabone almost killed my dog

1

BEWARE! I purchased a Nylabone dog chew toy a few months back from Petsmart. Without warning Skywalker suddenly became ill on Sunday. He was vomiting, not eating, nor drinking. Within one day my dog was lethargic, so we decided to rush him to the emergency vet clinic that Monday evening. After multiple X-rays and blood work nothing showed up except gas bubbles and dehydration. After numerous tests his condition was worsening. The vet had no option but to do emergency surgery on Wednesday thinking there had to be a blockage somewhere. Sure enough he had swallowed an object that lodged in his bowels. Once removed it was determined that he had swallowed a piece of a Nylabone dog chew. An item that is being sold in pet stores and is meant for a dog to chew on could have killed my dog. I will do everything in my power to get these toys off the shelf. It doesn't stop here. Please let fellow dog and cat owners aware of what this toy can do.

Okay product, can be hazardous.

With all the dog toys and chews out there, the products are literally endless! This is one of the most unique products out there, as it's not a bone and it's not rubber or plastic, but made of nylon. It's one of those things you kind of want to try just because it's so diffrent. I bought one of these for my great Dane I used to have, because he enjoyed chewing select household products, such as plastics and the hard rims of baseball caps. He could reach just about anything, unless it was ceiling level! So I was on the hunt for something that would satisfy his incessant chewing. He didn't like most of what I got him and he would look for other things to chew instead. We finally got the nylabone and he took it as his job to destroy it. He spent hours and hours on that thing and also finally left my things alone! He would have to have it taken away a lot because he would chew it so much for so long that he would cause his mouth and gums to bleed. He ended up making that thing have all these sharp spikes sticking up off it and we had to throw it out and get him a new one. And we even got him a different one and he did the same with that one. He was crazy for them but I was a little scared that he would get a piece off it and swallow it or that he would eventually hurt his mouth more than the occasional scratch. He never did but we also watched him with it and made sure it wasn't too far gone to be chewed on. The nylabone definately stood up to way more abuse than other toys and chews and he enjoyed it much more. He loved the things and I kept buying them for him for years, and he actually stopped chewing up our stuff and only chewed on the nylabone. I am so so with reccomending it, but I highly advise that the dog is watched with it if they are heavy chewers and that it's inspected before every use for damage or loose pieces, and then it should be thrown out and replaced. I would never leave this with that particular dog when I wasn't around.

Nylabone Chew Bone is great for puppies and small dogs.

Nylabone Chew Bone is terrific for puppies and smaller dogs. This is a great choice for puppies going through the chewing stage. It's hard enough to help puppies get their permanent teeth without hurting them like some less quality products on the market. It's also great for small dogs who like to chew. I wouldn't suggest this for larger dogs or dog's that have a stronger jaw by breed because with extremely hard chewing chunks of this bone can break off. That of course could cause a choking hazard or stomach problems. So as is always suggested I would supervise my dog while using this product. It is very useful but just needs the proper supervision. Their are stronger toys on the market, but this particular product is more useful for puppies especially if they have their milk teeth. My yorkie is no longer a puppy but he still enjoys these bones. He does chew hard but I just keep an eye on him while he uses this toy.

Stops destruction of my things!

I purchased an extra large Nylabone Chew Bone for my dog and it might be her least favorite thing to chew until I show interest in it. She will ignore this bone for hours until I decide to pick it up and it becomes her favorite chew toy. She'll chew on this bone on and off for several hours. She'll walk back and forth with the bone in her mouth for a couple minutes then stop and nibble on it for 20 minutes at a time. This bone does a good job of keeping tartar off her teeth, strong jaw, strong teeth, and overall mental health. The bone really comes in handy when I have work to do and I don't want my dog to become bored. When my dog becomes bored her behavior can become destructive. This bone helps her channel the pent up energy until we go for a walk or play catch. Another great thing about this bone is that it will last for a very long time. It's extremely durable and she has chewed on the same bone for months before it started to show signs of failure.

Not the Best Option Out There

3

Nylabone Chew Bone began to bore my adult dogs rather quickly-and I guess I don't blame them-it appears to be merely chewing on plastic and rubber, or of course, nylon. Compared to many other tastier and more texture-oriented chew bones and treats I guess it would be a rather bland experience. For a dog that will happily chew anything you give them, especially a puppy, I have little that is negative to say about this bone. However, I do wonder if the materials it is made of is actually good for the dog. When pieces break off they leave them on the floor, making a mess-I suppose this is saying something about their interest. The last ones I gave them had to be thrown away because they didn't care to chew them at all. I don't doubt it did their teeth some good while they chewed it, but I didn't notice any significant change in breath or cleanliness of their teeth. Because their are so many options out there these days, I don't know why one would bother buying Nylabone.

Love these!

Our dog was a big chewer and he has expensive taste having destroyed DVDS, an Xbox controller, computer charger and other various electronic items. These bones are super cheap in comparison to the items he "ate" seem to last forever. Even though he has outgrown that horrible puppy chewing stage I still really like these bones because they are made of a non-toxic plastic material so they are not something like a rawhide that he eats immediately and is done looking for something new to eat. We bought him a large breed bone and it is still in his box of goodies over a year later. He chews on it when he has the urge to chew and then leaves it till he feels the need for it again. They have a bunch of varieties to choose from including size differences, flavors (including chicken and peanut butter), and strengths for various breeds. They also have some designed for teeth health and bad breath conditions.

The best chew bone out there!

Nylabone chew bones are the best chew bone ever made! If you buy the right strength size for your dog they will never be able to chew through the material of the bone. I bought one for my puppy and it has lasted for three years and there is almost no bite marks at all! It lasted through his teething years and beyond and he is a big dog with a very strong bite. It comes in all sorts of colors and shapes and sizes so you can find a perfect fit for the type of chew toy your dog loves. They have almost every single type invented; there are shapes to help clean your dogs teeth as they chew, there are different flavors available that never lose their taste no matter how much the dog chews it, and there are also different shapes to allow your dog to be able to carry it around or just leave it in their favorite spot. They are so durable you do not have to worry about small pieces getting chewed off and hurting your dog. I recommend.

Awesome for puppies

The Nylabone Chew Bone is an awesome chew toy for puppies or small dogs who want to chew on everything. The bone is made out of hard plastic so it isn't like giving your dog a treat that will be harmful to teeth. I also like that it cleans your dog's teeth as more of the bone is chewed down. The hard part about it is that if the toy starts to break your dog could choke on small bits of plastic as it will start to come apart. I wasn't worried about the super small pieces but the pieces that were a bit bigger and that my dog couldn't digest. This can be remedied by keeping a close eye on your dog and looking at the toy to see how much has been chewed. If it looks ragged throw it away and get a new one! Another way to prevent this is to not give it to bigger dogs as they will tear it apart quickly and ingest dangerous sized pieces. The bones we purchased came in a package of three and were very reasonably priced. They can be purchased almost anywhere but usually the best prices I've found are online.

Not for Tiny Dogs

3

My dog is tiny, a Chihuahua, so he has a very tiny little mouth. When a friend (who has a much bigger dog and didn't realize how small my dog's mouth is) gave him a Nylabone as a gift I gave it to him without much hope since it was very large for him. However, it worked out rather well. The bone is big (for him) and he certainly can't fit the entire thing in his mouth and carry it around as a bigger dog would be able to. He does enjoy nibbling on the ends though and really works at it for long periods of time. Despite him chewing away at it for several months now it shows barely any wear so it is certainly durable. What concerns me, and why I take it away when I won't be supervising his play time, is that this is made of a very hard material so if he flops it around he could actually hit himself in the head with it and get injured. Not badly, but definitely bruised. So, while this is good for medium to large dogs tiny dogs must be supervised while using this.

Good, Safe Chewing

My dog likes to chase or play catch for awhile and then lay down and chew like crazy on whatever toys she was using for the games. She destroyed a lot of toys, and then we came up with the idea of using a semi-hard chew treat like this for playtime. We'll toss the Nylabone a few times to get some play time in, and when she proceeds to the chewing portion of the evening, we like knowing that what she's working her way through is safer than rubber, yarn or other toys that she would normally try this with. Nylabone is more expensive than other treats, but it's meant to last longer and provide the chew entertainment. We try to make one bone last 3-4 times. It's not big, perhaps 4 inches long and 1 inch wide. Our dog would destroy the whole treat on one occasion but we tend to distract her after awhile and sneak it away to hide until the next time. She seems to enjoy it, and we enjoy that there's no sharp edges, strings or un-digestible parts.
