Just brainstorming if there's anything stronger than cotton thread to mend Kong toys. I thought of like fishing line...but if they swallow some, the cotton thread probably digests pretty easy compared to other stuff.
The toys are Kong ballistics made with kevlar. They're sturdy but some of the seams have ripped. At $20 a toy I'd like them to get a bit more use out of them...any ideas to make the seams a bit stronger safely?

Oy, I know anybody reading this who has cute little playful doggies is probably gasping, yes my babies can chew through bullet proof fabric for fun, I've read they can also do sheet metal...just pleased they're on our sidelaugh out loud

Cotton thread probably wouldn't last long on these types of toys. I'm not even sure a polyester thread woukd work well. You can buy kevlar thread or sail repair thread that would be strong enough to hold this type of material. You will also need a large needle and thimble.

How about waxed linen, like one uses on leather? a leather needle or easy stitcher would work well and linen is a plant product if swallowed.
