Skip Rawhide Chews!
As most health conscious pet parents who seek safe treats already know, rawhide chews have risks associated with them and should be avoided. What is rawhide? Rawhide is inner hide from a cow or other animal that has been treated with chemicals to remove hair and other materials. Then it is ground or used whole, and is made into various dog chews shapes.
Many veterinarians are concerned with the potential health risks associated with dogs consuming rawhide. Some of these health risks include stomach and intestinal blockage and the possibilities of ingesting the toxic chemicals used to process rawhide snacks. Additionally, the making of rawhide products have a serious negative impact on the environment due to the chemicals used during processing. So, do your furry friend a favor and skip the rawhide snacks!
