I don't use dog bones or rawhide. I haved used Nylabone for years, as most of my dogs were pretty aggressive chewers.

Thanks Val. I've seen those in the pet stores before and wondered how they could be good for our fur-babies.

Thanks for the info Val - will pass it on to friends and family.

We haven't used anything like these for many years now, not since having all sorts of problems crop up with various beasties - no rawhides, pigs ears, crushed rawhide sticks, actual real bones - nary a one cross any of their lips any more.

'Bone Treats' for Dogs Linked with 90 Pet Illnesses, 15 Deaths

"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning dog owners that pet products known as "bone treats" — which are real bones that are processed and packaged for sale — could cause serious illness and even death in pets....

These treats may be dried through smoking or baking and may contain preservatives, seasonings and other flavorings. A number of different bone-treat products were described in the reports, including "ham bones,” “pork femur bones,” “rib bones” and “smokey knuckle bones," the FDA said.

Some of the health complications seen in dogs after they ate bone treats include choking, vomiting, diarrhea, blockages in the digestive tract and bleeding from the rectum, the FDA said...

Pet owners should also not feed their pets real bones (such as leftover bones from their chicken or turkey), as these can also cause injury. The FDA recommends that consumers talk with their veterinarian about other chew toys or treats that are appropriate for their dogs. Consumers should also supervise their dog while they're using any chew toy or treat, Stamper said..."
