My oldest was eating a rawhide and when she was done I noticed that her breathing was really shallow and labored. Sure enough it was stuck in her throat and closing her airways. I could almost reach it and opted to make her throw it up, which was a lot faster then getting to the vet and I'm sure she would have died. Haven't used another rawhide since..8 yrs.
