Default Rawhide's, alternatives?

So I have been buying rawhide's for Dixie for almost 2 years, from Costco the Cadet kind. And I didn't think that rawhide's were that bad for dogs, but a friend say's her dog has been having seizures and she believes it is from the rawhide's, and she's been getting them from Wal Mart. I have been doing research on the matter, and am wondering if anybody here has experienced anything like this? And if rawhide's are really bad for dogs, what else could I buy her that she could chew on that isn't super expensive? I have bought her bully sticks but she goes through those so fast

Antlers, beef tendons, frozen raw marrow bones or knuckle bones. Stuffed kongs that are frozen can last a while as well

Antlers have been a big hit with ours.

Cow hooves were a favorite around here only issue is they begin to smell when they are chewing on them. Just got Titan a Ram Horn and he likes those more than the deer antlers. His top choice for chewing is a marrow bone. LOVES them. He gets one about once a week.
