This is a long lasting chew toy and is not to be eaten. As with all ChooBee Dog Toys, you must supervise your pet while chewing. It is important to select the correct toy, size, and type (Maxx or Flexx) based on your dog’s age, breed, chewing style, and size. Discard toy if it shows signs of visible wear or if it starts to break or splinter. May cause gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, vomiting or blockage if not supervised.
