Wonder if its good or not !? do you give them to your dog ?
Yeah, it is impossible to know the true quality of what you're getting ESPECIALLY from china. Dog owners should know by now never to feed anything from china.My view is 95% of the rawhide we get is made in China and South America, that means there is no regulation in the chemicals used or for that matter what kind of hide it is, we think of rawhide as being from cattle but it could very well be any kind of animal.
Am I right?
Danger RawhideYes but American Made only.
I have never had problems with rawhides and my dogs. The only thing I would possibly worry about is chips or sticks (not knotted or rolls) that could get caught in their throats if swallowed before soft.
I have to wonder where the statement that rawhide is not digestible came from because if it's not digestible you would see it in the poop and I have never seen any indication of rawhide in my dogs poop.
When I want to get to the bottom of a debate I don't arbritarily believe everything I hear or read. I like to stick to the experts and use some common sense. Plus, I look for current data! The rawhide issue of toxic chemicals has been known for years so manufacturers who want to stay in business would logically find safer methods to process rawhides for our dogs consumption. If USA rawhides have stricter manufacturing laws then that is a reason to stick with USA rawhides.
The folklore that says rawhide isn't digestible doesn't ring true to me. That was the question I was pondering in my previous post. I've seen my dogs eat things that don't digest like socks and underwear oh my! And guess what?! It came out in the poop lucky for me and the dog!!! So where are all those undigested rawhides? Never have I seen even a piece of undigested rawhide in my dogs poop. So I am suspect of the statement
The only hazard I have experienced was a bitch of mine that would choke on pices that she did not chew well, so she was always monitored. My other dogs chew them up and have no problems.
Ask the Vet: Rawhides? | Lowcountry Dog
How about a Vets opinion that seems to be more tempered in that it mentions some dogs might not do well, that American rawhide is the way to go, and no where does the article say rawhide is not digestible. Food for thought.
Considering how tough rawhide is and how bad it is for digestibility, puppies should not be given rawhide under any circumstances... not with developing digestive systems and their sensitivities.Yes, but under supervision. I find it really works great for teething puppies
