Try putting it in the microwave on full power for up to a minute - this will cause the K9® to expand, making it easier to chew and will also release the cheese aroma (view the youtube / facebook videos on microwaving K9®)

  Why are there sometimes cracks, dents and folds in my K9® cheese bone and the shape, size & colour sometimes varies
The cheese is hand made and every one will be slightly different; if there is cracking then this is due to the hand made nature and the lengthy drying out process, the slight weight variation is also due to hand moulding and slight colour changes are usually due to changes in the milk which are related to what the cow is being fed and also the age of the cheese.
