Nylabone

Post by CucumberMouse on Tue 27 Feb 2018, 10:12 pm

So, I was wondering if nylabone would be safe for a mouse. As in, the flavored kinds like this one:

I don't even know if they're safe for dogs... haven't really done much research. But if there were like chicken flavors and such, do you think a mouse would enjoy licking the nylabone for flavor (if it is safe)? So, basically is nylabone safe for dogs and mice?

Not sure about these, but I get Whimzees chews for my mice! They adore them, and they look a bit similar. Mine like the green ones.

I'm not sure about Nylabones, so just to be safe I would stay away from those. All my rodents, mouse and hamsters love dog biscuits. I get them the Blue Buffalo limited ingredient salmon and potato.

Isn’t it essentially flavored plastic?  I personally would skip it for any animal.

I also occasionally offer xxs whimzee chews to my mice and my sons hamster.  They’re safe and well liked, made mainly out of potato starch.  I’ve also given the occasional dog biscuit (check ingredients). But my mice haven’t been picky with regular chews - loofa, apple, willow, cardboard, raffia, seagrass, etc.

Some of the Nylabones are plastic that is flavored and some are actually consumable. The link CucumberMouse provided shows the ingredients list: Ingredients: Inert soft thermoplastic polymer, chicken flavor. Considering thease ingredients are so general and not specific I would not trust them aspecialy since it included polymer although I am not completely sure it is dangerous it would prolly just be better to avoid.

I've recently given the Whimzees, the alligator shaped ones Very Happy
Bear, my Syrian hamster, really likes them and chews on them. Cam, my Winter White hamster, just licked it a bit and that's it. I'm glad that Bear is enjoying them.
