Get to know your dog's chewing style - It is important to select the appropriate chew type, size, and formulation based on your dog's age, breed, chewing style and weight. The pressure exerted by a dog's jaw is considerable, and when directed straight down can put tremendous stress on their teeth. It is recommended that non-edible chews be large enough to encourage chewing from the side rathe rthan the top and bottom.

If your dog is between sizes, choose the larger-size chew item. If you have more than one dog in your household, select chews appropriate for the largest, strongest chewer. If your dog is an especially strong chewer, a larger chew may provide more of a challenge.

Nylabone® makes both Non-Edible Chew Toys and Edible Chew Products - Edible Chew products are treats: Their lifespan is determined by each individual dog's chewing style and strength. These all-natural chews are edible and highly digestible. Be sure that your dog does not break off and swallow large pieces. Remember to supervise the use of these chews and toys!

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE: Nylabone® makes both Non-Edible and Edible Chew Products


NON-EDIBLE CHEW PRODUCTS are made with plastic, rubber, or nylon. They are NOT intended for consumption. During normal chewing, tiny bristle-like projections are raised that help clean teeth. If these tiny pieces (no larger than a small grain of rice) are ingested, they should pass through. A dog should not be able to break off larger pieces of any Nylabone® Non-Edible Chew. If you think that your dog swallowed a large piece of a Non-Edible Chew, take the chew away and contact your veterinarian for advice. No dog toy or chew is totally indestructible. Frequently inspect any chew before giving it to your dog to make sure it's whole and intact, with no missing pieces. Replace a Non-Edible Chew when knuckle ends are worn down, or if it becomes too small to chew safely. Nylabone® Chews and Toys should not be boiled, placed in a dishwasher, washing machine, or convection or microwave oven.

NON-EDIBLE PUPPY CHEW PRODUCTS are specially designed for young, teething puppies. They should not be given to a dog with ANY permanent teeth, regardless of age.

EDIBLE CHEW PRODUCTS are treats: Their lifespan is determined by each individual dog's chewing style and strength. These all-natural chews are edible and highly digestible. Natural color may stain light colored surfaces. They are best enjoyed by a dog with all of its permanent teeth (usually around 6 months). Exceptions: Healthy Edibles® and Nutri Dent® for Puppies 3 months and older.

EDIBLE PUPPY CHEW PRODUCTS are designed for puppies 3 months of age and older. Please consult your veterinarian for the right time to start your puppy on edible chews.

RAWHIDE is a natural product. It is important that the chew is large and thick enough that a dog cannot easily chew off and swallow a large piece or the whole chew. We recommend discarding rawhide when it has been enjoyed down to a small portion or if it requires more than 5 days to consume. Natural color may stain light colored surfaces.
