    Default Nylabone Effects

    I recently switched my 8 month old bully from rawhide bones to Nylabone after learning that rawhides aren't the best for the breed. He ate about three quarters of an 8 inch bone in one sitting, and since doing so he has had severe diarrhea. Has anyone else had this experience?

    There's lots of different kinds of Nyla's out there but i'm assuming you gave him one of those edible varieties? Looking at the ingredient list of their website, your bully may have sensitivities to any of the following if they're not used to it:
    ingredients

    Wheat starch, glycerin, Powdered Cellulose, lecithin, potato starch, chicken powder, roast beef flavor, natural bacon flavor, natural flavor, oat fiber, calcium carbonate, soy flour and rosemary oil. Vitamins: Thiamin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Biotin, Choline, Inositol and PABA. Minerals: Calcium Carbonate, Ferrous Carbonate, Magnesium Oxide, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Chloride, Zinc Oxide, Copper Oxide, Manganese Oxide and Sodium Molybdate.


    I've given mine the edible Nyla's before w/out any adverse effects but you may want to stick to the non-edible Nylabones instead for Jackson. Or deer antlers are also a great alternative.

    Loki and now lola are only aloud the rhino nylabone or real bone or antler. I don't like the edible nylabone those shards can't be good for their bellies?

    we dont give the edible nylabones either. but we have switched from the 'powerful chewers' ones to the rubbery ones for the safety and cleanliness of her teeth. she still gets deer and elk antlers though. good source of glucosamine, and she loves them.

    We have never given our bullies the edible Nylabones. Clyde absolutely loved Nylabones, but Morgan is an Elk Antler guy :-). Glad you found out that raw hides are bad for them. The Elk Antlers are expensive, but they last a long time. We always supervise Morgan when he has his... just to be on the safe side.

    I have Nylabones all over the house-but never have gotten the edible kind. I just don't like giving them things like that. Never any edible toys or rawhides.

    This happen when I gave Nitschke one of those for the first time.... and needless to say, he did not get a second. banks has a steal stomach so it did not bother her, but she also tries to swallow things whole, so no edibles for her

    June could chew those edible Nylabones for over an hour a few months ago. We gave her one a couple weeks ago and it was gone in 15 minutes!!! She likes them but I won't spend the money on them now...

    I gave Dooley an edible one once as a treat and in a matter of minutes he ate about 80% of it. About two hrs later he puked. So no more edible for us. Strictly deer antlers, nylabone chews and kong toys for him.
