All about our chews

Answers to the questions most commonly asked about our chews.

What are Nylabone chews made of?

All our Nylabone products are made from a non-toxic, pet-safe material and are designed for the specific chewing style and size of your dog.

What size chew should I give my dog?

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 strong chewer’s jaw is considerable, and when directed straight down can put tremendous (as much as 450 psi) stress on the dog’s teeth.

It is therefore recommended that non-edible chews be large enough to encourage chewing from the side rather than the top and bottom.

If you have more than one dog in your household, select chews appropriate for the largest, strongest chewer. 

See ‘How to chews your chew’ for more details.

When should I replace my dog’s favourite Non-Edible Nylabone® chew?

Replace when knuckle ends are worn down, or if it becomes too small for your dog to chew safely.

Why can’t I give my adult dog a Puppy bone?

The pressure exerted by an adult dog’s jaw is considerable.

The Flexible polymer formulation of our puppy chew toys is especially designed for young, teething puppies, and will not withstand the strength of an adult dog’s teeth and jaws.

Can I put my dog’s Nylabone® in the dishwasher?

Nylabone® Chews and Toys should not be autoclaved, boiled, placed in a dishwasher, washing machine, convection or microwave oven.

To clean Nylabone® Non-Edible Chews, scrub with a brush under warm water, using mild, non-toxic detergent, and rinse thoroughly.

Our products are flavoured throughout and will last the life time of the chew.  No amount of scrubbing will remove our flavour!

Inspect for wear while cleaning.

Where are Nylabone products made?

Most Nylabone® products are made in the USA and a few of our products are made in China.
