For years, humans kept giving me bones and treats made out of rawhide. They tasted yummy, kept me busy, and were great for my teeth. A lot of my friends even chewed on rawhide too, but something bad kept happening to us, and humans FINALLY realized that rawhide products are actually BAD for dogs! But let’s talk about why first, and then I’ll tell you all about the tasty solution my mom, Tonya, found!
What is Rawhide?
Rawhide comes from the inner layer of cow or horse hides. During manufacturing, the hides are cleaned and cut or ground. Then they’re pressed into chewable dog treats of different shapes and sizes. To make them more appealing for dogs, some rawhide treats contain beef, chicken, or liver flavorings.
The Dangers of Rawhide
In one word: choking! Sometimes us dogs tear off a BIG piece of our rawhide treat and try to swallow it. It can get lodged in our throat, and we can choke to death! OR if it gets stuck somewhere in our intestines and our bodies can’t digest it, our bowels could become obstructed and need surgery! Not to mention the low quality of ingredients and chemicals I was subjecting myself to - they gave me diarrhea and indigestion! All-in-all, rawhide is just not worth the risks.
The Solution: Earth Animal No Hide Chews
So I stopped the rawhide cold-turkey, but I was in serious need of something to chew on! My mom searched and searched, and she finally found the best rawhide alternative out there: Earth Animal No Hide Chews. These babies are simply perfect, and of course, my mom sells them at The Hipster Hound!
Earth Animal No Hide Chews have got the three D’s: delicious, durable, and digestible. Each no hide chew is carefully blended with seven pure and simple ingredients, hand-rolled, baked, coated, and air-dried. Even better - these chews are free of any animal hide, formaldehydes, bleaches, chemicals, hormones, or steroids. But my favorite thing is that they are made with only natural, nutritious ingredients that are easily digestible. And here are the FACTS for PROOF: Earth Animal No Hide Chews averaged 80 percent digestibility after 8 hours compared to only 18 percent digestibility for rawhide.
