Warning about orbee bone!
After reading on the forum about the Orbee toys, I found a couple of places in my area that sold them. I purchased a couple of the toys but one of the first times my 8mt old golden played with the Orbee bone (large size) he chewed a large piece right off the end of the bone. I was with him in the kitchen but he swallowed it before I could grab it from him. The piece was about the size of a very large walnut. Fast forward several weeks later, we were on vacation and had our two goldens with us, thank goodness, Chip my 8mt old became very sick, vomiting, etc. Found a vet in Destin, FL who saved his life. Chip had a total obstruction in his intestines, the vet performed emergency surgery and saved our boy!
She showed me what she removed, after asking us what was missing from around the house, etc. It was the end of the Orbee bone that he had swallowed several weeks ago.
That was one week ago today, Chip is recovering nicely and is due to have his stitches removed in the next 5 days. Hopefully then we can put this all behind us!
I know my Chip is a strong chewer but I was so surprised to see this toy that so many people recommended, come apart so quickly!
Just wanted to pass along our experience so this may help others.
