Lexi's favorite chewy , 9/18/14
Ever since Lexi was gifted with a Bristle Bone it is her favorite chewy and nightly ritual. Every couple of days I soak and clean the entire bone is soapy water. Haven't noticed any problem with bristle loss.
Tho I've requested several time, our local store in Marble Falls TX has failed to stock the Bristle Brush even though they have several other types of PetSafe products.

bristles start falling out in first hour of chewing, 5/8/14
this product really cleans the teeth on my 18 lb. Daschund . I would give this product a very high rating except for the bristles falling out, probably not safe if the bristles got into the dogs intestines. I hope the manufacturer can fix this problem.

A hit and a miss, 4/28/14
My 2 year old, 60lb lab mix is a power chewer and it is extremely difficult to find toys that can hold up for him. He LOVE LOVE LOVEd his large Bristle Bone. HOWEVER, as other owners of power chewers have noted, the bristle rings simply do not hold up. His were demolished within just a couple of days--he chewed off the rawhide rings and kept going. The ends and rubber rings held up nicely, but the bristle rings were quickly destroyed. Much to my pup's dismay, I had to remove this toy from his toy box as it no longer seemed safe. $19.99 is mighty expensive for a toy that only lasts a few days. If the bristle rings were replaceable at a reasonable cost, I would give this chew toy 5 stars. I hope the PetSafe folks will remedy this problem. As it is, we will continue to stick with Nylabone Durachews as they have proven much longer lasting and run about half the price of the Bristle Bone.
