n-bone teething ring

Hi, everyone! I recently bought Winston a pumpkin n-bone teething ring, which he LOVES more than any other teething toy/food we've tried with him. Unfortunately, he manages to bite off small pieces that are a choking hazard. Have any of you used non ring shaped n-bone products that don't break off into small pieces?

Thanks!

The Nylabone puppy products are for really light chewers. If he is breaking off pieces they should be taken away because it can be hazardous for him to swallow them. You can try the products that are for stronger chewers or maybe something like a Himalayan Chew or antler.

Thanks for this response. It's not a Nylabone. It's a pumpkin N-bone:



He doesn't like anything else nearly as much as this so I'd love to find him a safe version of this.

I think with any edible product or dental chew of this consistancy you have to be concerned about choking or intestinal blockage if they are biting off hunks of the product, instead of nibbling on it and just getting little bits off at a time.

This^ Nylabone make some consumable chews and this appears to be one of them. If big pieces are being bitten off Id be concerned about how consumable they really are. Ive had good luck with Himalayan Chews, I just wish they were more consistent in size and color, Nico loves some and ignores the others. He is a fickle little fellow.

I agree with the others who posted. After $1800 in ER vet bills (and a lot more grey hairs) after giving Kodi an "edible (digestible)" chew SUGGESTED by our vet at the time, I would never EVER give one of my dogs a consumable chew. At the university ER hospital, they told me that the majority of surgical blockages they saw there were the result of "dental chews".

Scout & Truffles really like the Himalayan Yacky Churro vegetable chew. They come in cheese or chicken too. The regular cheese chew is harder then the Yacky chew. Plus the Yacky chews have ridges. I haven't purchased the regular Himalayan chews because I'm afraid my two might choke on one.

Thanks for all this helpful info, everyone. We're slowly getting Winston more interested in harder Nyla bones so he can soothe his teeth without breaking off bits of stuff that could cause blockages. I've also been freezing Kongs with goodies inside and those seem to help, too. So long, consumables!

One of the BEST teething "things" that our breeder introduced us to is to take an old terrycloth face cloth and cut it into wide strips. Tie the strips in knots and soak them in water, then freeze. They are free, the cold feels GREAT on their gums, and as they warm up, you can just swap them out for another frozen one. Rinse the old one and replace it in the freezer!

I LOVE this idea! But I don't want him to think it's OK to chew on clothes, socks, sheets, etc. How do I teach him that "his" frozen cloths are OK but other cloth is off limits?
