Here’s the alternative to rawhide and there’s such a variety to choose from, some of our favourites are:
Pigs ears and anything natural.
Like any chew, your dog will need supervising whilst having these as there are still risks but less so than giving your dog rawhide. Not so long-ago Bailey tried to swallow a piece of Camel chew without chewing it properly. It got lodged in his throat and I couldn’t remove it, so he had to go to the vets to have it removed. The vet couldn’t remove it either without sedating him, the funny thing was, as he was sedated, he swallowed it. It turned out to be a very expensive chew, but things could have been very different if I wasn’t supervising him.
Many of the larger chain pet stores are starting to stock more natural treats which is lovely to see but they still have the stuff that’s not so good.
Hopefully armed with this information it’s enough to put you off feeding rawhide to your dog and you know what to look out for in the shops that’s better for your dog.
Generally, dogs will eat most things which are put in front of them. They put their trust in us to provide them with safe foodstuffs, so I urge you not to buy rawhide for your dog and anyone who gifts them with this however well-meaning it is, it’s not given to them either.
All treats found in our hampers are 100% natural, contain no nasties including artificial colouring, or flavours. Just safe, wholesome yummy goodies that your dog will thank you for.
