Our Jack does the same thing and we got him a Racketball and he loves them. He hasn't popped one yet but once he does we will make sure to take it away from him asap.

Thank you so much for the info and the link for a different ball.I only buy toys and everything else only from the U.S.A. because stuff from China they are trying to kill us anyway LOL
But I will go out and get him some different balls and Kong is the best

Our Jack did the same thing and our vet told us that the fuzzy stuff could be bad for her teeth. Plus, there are a lot of chemicals in those balls (coloring, etc). We stopped using them immediately even though she loves them (although she occassionaly find them on walks or in a hidden place in the yard). Instead we have tried the Kong brand SqueakerAir ball and our Lilly really likes it. Here is a link:
