Are Nylabone chew toys safe?

A recent TV news investigation described how pieces of Nylabone’s “Plaque Attacker,” a synthetic bone manufactured by T.F.H.

Because the “Plaque Attacker’s” chips do not show up on x-rays, the only chance of finding the cause of an infection is surgery or, tragically, in hundreds of dogs’ cases, necropsy.

Fortunately, after years of pressure by concerned individuals, Nylabone has recalled the “Plaque Attacker” and recently announced plans to introduce a new, safer product.
