-- The content of chew toys is important in relation to safety. Any toy that can splinter (made of wood) or unravel (rope toys) is potentially dangerous. I have had to sedate canine patients to remove wooden splinters that have worked their way under the gum line, causing pain and infection. I also have had dogs present with strands of a rope toy stuck between teeth, or wadded up into a ball ready to be swallowed. Again, I'm not saying "never," but always with supervision. These toys should be stowed away when the owner cannot be present.
