Dogs are carnivorous creatures. In the wild, they would consume entire animals, including skin and bone. Rawhide is a natural product. We have not found it to cause blockages or problems in most dogs.
Rawhide that requires more than 7 days to chew should be replaced due to dirt and bacteria buildup.
Can my dog choke on rawhide?
It is important that the chew be large enough and thick enough that your dog cannot easily chew off and swallow a large piece or swallow the whole chew.
If your dog consistently swallows bones whole, it should probably not receive chews unattended.
When the chew has been enjoyed down to a small portion, you may want to remove the remains if your pet tends to try to swallow or eat pieces that are just a little too big for the pet.
Dog chews have an unlimited shelf life as long as they are not subjected to moisture. Keep your chews in a dry place or away from immediate moisture contact and your chews will be nice and tasty when you are ready to reward your pet.
Rawhide bones have a low moisture content and therefore should not attract bugs while in storage. Basted products however, can and many times do, attract bugs as the flavoring is a food product. We recommend that your basted chews be stored in an air tight bag or jar in order to prevent attracting bugs.
We have had 1 customer report problems with pests getting into containers of pig ears. We strongly urge you to keep pig ears sealed in air tight plastic bags.
All our products marked "USA" are made in the United States. We use the highest quality United States-grown beefhide. We use no artificial chemicals or preservatives. Products marked "imported" have been hand-selected by our staff from reputable companies whose manufacturing processes meet our high standards. See our policy on imported pet treats.
Our rawhide products are prepared in a series of clear-water baths to remove fats from the hides. The last bath contains a mild hydrogen peroxide mix to kill bacteria.
We do not use preservatives or whiteners on our hides.
