The Most Dangerous Pet Chew Ever: Rawhide!

Below is a very interesting article on the dangers of rawhide chews.  I used to give my dogs rawhide chews years ago but stopped because, when the chews became soft and pliable, bits of the chew broke off and were either swallowed whole or got caught in the back of their throat and caused them to choke. Its no fun trying to pull a large piece of rawhide out of a Bullmastiff’s mouth.

How can one of the most popular chew sticks on the planet be so dangerous for your pets, you ask? I mean, most dogs chew on rawhide for hours on end, and not only does it keep them busy, but they seem to last forever. Well if you understood what it took to make this… Continue Reading

Keep those Doggies Rollin’……Rawhide, Rawhide!

Great and informative article and a must read for all those who feed rawhide chews and bones.

I used to give my dogs rawhide treats which they loved (mainly the bones) but I stopped doing that a long time ago. I personally found after they had chewed them for a while, the bones became soft and they would break off the knots, which were not as soft. More often than not my hand ended up in their mouths, to prevent them from choking, trying to dislodge and retrieve these knots,

Even smaller pieces of rawhide, when chewed, to become soft and pliable can get caught at the back of a dogs throat, they can find it very hard to dislodge and possible choking can occur.  If larger knots and the like are swallowed they also may cause blockages in the gut.

The Science Dog

I have always hoped that someday I would find a connection between the Blues Brothers and dog nutrition. That day has come.

Rawhide, Rawhide: A dog person cannot walk into a pet supply store (or their own grocery store, for that matter) without noticing the explosion in the number of dog chews, dental devices and edible bones that are available for sale today. Some of these are biscuit or extruded concoctions containing a mixture of ingredients, while others originate from cow skin (rawhide chews) or are the left-over body parts of a hapless food animal (pig/lamb ears, hooves, and bully sticks).

If you do not know what a bully stick is, ask your mother. Better yet, ask your father.

Even as the selection of these items has expanded, nutritional information about them is still glaringly absent. Since all of these products are intended to be chewed slowly so that pieces or the entire produce will be gradually consumed by the dog, we should at least be informed…
