Get Rid of Raw Hide
Get Rid of Raw Hide
When it comes to dog chews, there is one type of chew that has caused mountains of speculation over its safety for our pets.
Rawhide. Made from industrial types of leather, research is proving how dangerous these chews can be for our dogs, and how companies are opting for more natural ingredients to keep our dogs chomping urges at bay.
Here at the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we stand behind the safety of each and every one of our chews. Made from the finest ingredients and completely danger-free, we have fallen in love with rawhide-free chews and will always urge our customers to choose a more natural and wholesome chew that is completely safe for our pets.
So with research ripping into the rawhide markets, here’s why you should choose more natural options, and opt for some of our pet’s favourite all natural chews that will keep those knashers occupied and your dogs safe no matter what size, age or shape they are.
To us, your pet’s safety and health is at the forefront of our business and we want to provide you with the best chews that you can get your paws on!
Risks of Rawhide
Rawhide chews are created from the inner layer of cow or horse hides. During manufacturing, the hides are cleaned and cut or ground before being 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 'flavourings'.
As the chews are often coated in artificial flavourings, these chews can be tricky and harmful to dogs with sensitive bellies. We always recommend giving your dog a natural chew, whether meaty or vegetarian, that is easily digestible to prevent tummy upsets and further digestive complaints.
Rawhide bones and other rawhide chews can pose choking and blockage problems if broken off in larger and indigestible pieces. It is so important, no matter what chew given to your pet that they are supervised whilst they enjoy it. Unlike, rawhide chews, our all-natural varieties have a smaller risk of breaking, thus lowering the risk of potential choking and blockage issues.
What’s the alternative? When it comes to avoiding raw-hide, we always recommend choosing an all-natural option. Free from harsh chemicals, containing only the finest natural ingredients, gentle on tummies and safe to chomp 24/7, here’s a range of our favourite chews that will make you wave goodbye to raw-hide once and for all.
