United Pet Group Rawhide

Popular store brands of rawhide dog chews sold by Walmart, Petco and H-E-B and others due to possible contamination with a chemical compound.

Ugh.

I'm honestly astonished that raw hide can still even be sold for dogs under any circumstances -- so many blockages and problems come from this stuff, so many nasty chemicals used to bleach it, and nothing good nutritionally to come from it. Dried beef tracheas are vastly better options.

I never feed my dogs rawhides. They are just plain nasty. I agree Magwart! I am surprised they can even be sold. I think the majority of people have no idea how the product is actually made.

Once I started feeding our pups dried beef tracheas, I think their all time favorite~the bully stick~ fell to second place on the favorite treat list. Raw bones are much loved too!
Rawhide is nasty stuff. I almost didn't post the recall, but then I remembered that a couple of forum members recently mentioned feeding rawhide.

My in-laws still feed their two small breed dogs rawhides, despite several life threatening incidents. Even without the choking hazard, it's not nutritious at all, just empty calories...

I made a mistake and purchased a cooked bone a few months ago for my dogs birthday, I was supervising him when he had it but put it up on a table at night, but he got it anyway and one day later he ran as fast as he physically could into the office where my husband and I were with his mouth WIDE open making desperate wheezing noises. I shoved my hand/arm down his throat and felt a chunk of the bone, I wasn't able to get it out and out of desperation I pushed it through. He passed it just fine but I threw away the rest of the bone and will be more careful with bones, raw only!

There's actually a class action pending involving some of those cooked ham bones splitting into shards:

The manufacturer of "The Real Ham Bone for Dogs" has reportedly agreed to pay up to $2500 per claimant for vet bills from injuries caused by these things.
