I dont give them to Tazor, after 20 yrs as a vet tech I have seen too many incidents.. not worth the risk. We also wouldnt allow them withboarders, many people were really mad that we wouldnt let their dogs have them, but..better safe than sorry.

Thank you for doing the test, even though it didn't come out right at least you tried, I was curious myself what happens with rawhide and even though your test came out wrong I learned thats not a way to do it and I would make a mistake doing that myself. So there you go, you helped.. Thank you

is the dog a baby briard ?

anyway I am going to buy a small piece of rawhide , a large Coke , take pictures before and after and share them with you . I will place piece of rawhide into the Coke container and then submerse container into bucket of warm water to warm the Coke - the ideal would be 101 , the dog's body temperature.

never an incident with rawhide, but with all the other options antler and other chew toys, why risk it.

the experiment has begun.

I bought a standard 2 litre Coke classic . A package of 5 rawhide twists - deposited on into the Coke. Sealed lid , agitated a bit , released gas . I did this in case the breakdown of the rawhide created gasses and I wake up to a POP and sticky coke all over the kitchen.

hope I downloaded this alright . https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=05ab8...b=SDX.SkyDrive

at the end the container of Coke will be cut open , sieved to remove any slimy particles from breakdown . Then the experimental rawhide will be placed beside a fresh-out-of-package piece for comparison.

Just saw that the pictures are out of sequence . 2nd should be first , 2nd is 3 , 3 is the fourth -- LOOK at the foam just putting this rawhide into the Coke produces !! , then the 1st and last show you the rawhide in the container.
