Dog treats (100% natural rawhide)
What is rawhide made from?
Rawhide comes from the inner layer of the skin of the buffalo. During fabrication, the different layers of the skin are cleaned and cut. The first layers (which are of the best quality) are used to make consumer goods such as car seats, handbags, shoes, belts, etc. The last layer is then cut into strips which are used to make dog treats such as knotted and pressed bones.
What are the advantages of rawhide?
Rawhide calms the dog’s anxiety, improves oral hygiene, satisfies their need to chew, cleans their teeth and helps control pie build-up. Chewing on a rawhide bone for a puppy will help their milk teeth to fall off at the right time and grow new teeth during their development. Rawhide is not a food, but a safe chewable toy that can be, safely consumed. It is 80-85% protein, in collagen, 10-12% fiber and moisture, and 1-2% fat. High in protein, low in fat and fewer calories per ounce than a dog biscuit.
Are there risks associated with chewing rawhide for dogs?
Like any other product, some dogs are sensitive or allergic to rawhide. However, given the amount of rawhide consumed by dogs each year, risks are relatively low.
Here are some helpful tips:
• Always wash your hands after handling the treats.
• Is is recommended to inspect the procuts and watch your animal when they consume the treats.
