Rawhide chews are a popular treat for dogs. You might have heard that rawhide is good for your dog’s teeth and helps with his natural instinct to chew. But are there any drawbacks to giving your dog rawhide treats? Here’s what you need to know:
1. What are rawhide dog treats made of?
Rawhide treats are made from the inner layer of cow or horse hides. The hides are cleaned and cut or ground. Then they’re compressed into chewable dog treats of different shapes and sizes. To make them more appealing for our dog's, some rawhide treats contain beef, chicken, or liver flavorings and some have color dyes that are not harmful to your animal. Unless tested by your Vet. So you know what to feed or give your Pet.
2. What are the benefits of rawhide?
All dog's need to chew. It’s a natural instinct. Some even spend hours chewing every day. Chewing can provide your dog stimulation and help relieve anxiety. Mostly with puppies, who are teething, treats like rawhide bones can be a great substitute for your leather shoes and the legs of the dining room table! And we all know how that goes...
