Chew bones are beef femur bones which are the most dense beef bones. Our bones are smoked at a very low temperature, similar to the process of making beef jerky.

However, all real bones pose a minimal risk of splintering. If a piece were ever to break off of the bone your dog is chewing on, remove the broken piece.
