Do Nylabone Dog Products Cause Seizures in Pets?

Although Samantha Love’s dog may have suffered a seizure while chewing on a Nylabone product, there’s no evidence proving a cause-and-effect relationship between those two phenomena. Love apparently based her claim on the notion that “one of the side effects” of Nylabones is that “they are toxic and can cause seizures,” information she supposedly found through a Google search but for which she provided no relevant links. We attempted to replicate Love’s search but couldn’t find any source claiming that Nylabones were toxic or that one of their side effects was seizures.

While Love did not identify a specific product in her Facebook post, it’s likely that she was referring to Nylabone’s “FlexiChew Bone — Chicken” item. This product is made from “Inert Soft Thermoplastic Polymer” and “Chicken Flavor” and comes with a warning that it is “not recommended for strong chewers.”
