It is possible, especially with a puppy or senior dog, if you are not using the right size for your dog (small, medium, large etc.) Puppies should not be eating the adult chews because baby teeth are fragile and can break or fall out and be swallowed. Puppies should only play with puppy toys or chews as a result. If you experienced none of the above, contact their customer service department and find the package information before you do so. If you threw out the package, go to the store and take a picture of it so you can send it to them. ^_^

I have heard that happening a lot with Nylabones. Switch to a different brand of toys and chews like Kong.

Completely agree with Tasha! Seniors and puppies have more fragile teeth and generally need softer chews (doesn't mean they're easy to ruin. Classic Kong toys are soft rubber, but even tough chewers can't get through them). There's also a possibility the tooth was already decaying or had some other problem, so the bone helped it come all the way out.
I'd advise switching brands, and if the toy you used was the appropriate age/weight for your dog, then maybe even contact the company to file a complaint.
Best wishes! Hope your doggie is okay!
