German term or phrase: Nagerkolben
Dazu noch Nagerkolben und das Tier hat sowohl eine schöne Knabberbeschäftigung als auch beste Voraussetzungen für gesunde Zähne und ein langes Leben.

I can explain this in a sentence but is there one word.

English translation:a cob to chew on...
Explanation:
I'd use a phrase like that to describe the term.

There is a product on the US market (see below, the site even includes a picture, and it's exactly what a Nagerkolben looks like), but that might be a bit too specific.

Popcorn on the cob for pets! Makes a great treat for rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, parrots, cockatoos, macaws and other large hookbills. Can be popped in the microwave or eaten as is. Small animals should be fed this treat popped.
