My Husky had this chew for about 2 hours before he realized he can’t actually eat it .( score!) Now he won’t even look at it! I would say very safe! He is a very aggressive chewer and had no luck actually biting into it .
We have had one of these since our dogs were puppies and it is still a fan favorite around here. I don’t worry about them getting it torn apart and digesting little pieces, and it’s a bonus it doesn’t make any annoying noises! Yay!
