These nylon chew toys from Company of Animals provide hours of enjoyment and chewing satisfaction for your dog. The tasty meat flavour through the centre of the bone encourages your dog to chew, whilst the ridges formed in the nylon when your dog chews can help keep their teeth clean. They are extremely long lasting and great for dogs with sensitive tummies (because they are inedible) and dogs who might otherwise turn to destructive chewing.
Available in 5 different sizes - please select size appropriate for your dog and avoid giving smaller sizes to larger dogs because of choking risk.
At Just Dogs we pride ourselves on offering unbiased/honest and helpful info so please do take the time to read all of our information before judging which type of toy is right for your dog. Like every toy these are more popular for some dogs than others. For those dogs that really like to chew they make a good, stimulating toy which can help to clean teeth and keep your dog occupied for good periods and they are safe enough to leave your dog with. If your dog is not a power chewer they may not find this sort of toy gratifying enough. Some dogs are not as interested in nylabones as they have to work extremely hard to wear them down and so they lose interest quickly. We also like to remind people that whilst these products are often recommended by Vets some dental vets do like to warn of the rare occurence of teeth chipping because of extreme power chewers going at the toys too rigourously.
In the shop there is much discussion regarding what is appropriate and safe to give your dog as a chew. We don’t believe that there is a black and white answer to this one but thought it would be handy to provide a guide to some of the most discussed items we provide in the shop and their pros and cons to allow our customers to make a balanced and informed choice about what they give to their dogs.
With regards nylon bone chews..
To Chews: There is no risk of large pieces coming off these bones so they are an unlikely choking hazard and they are very long lasting, clean and good if your dog has allergies or is watching their weight.
Not to Chews: Some Dental Vet Specialists do not recommend using these types of toys as there have been some reported cases of tooth fractures which have been attributed to the use of nylabones. Others argue that providing your dog is not extremely aggressive with their chewing on these bones and that you don’t allow them to chew on them for very prolonged periods that the risk is minimal and that it is better that they chew on this than on something less safe.
