Are rawhide bones safe for dogs?
No. The most significant issue with rawhide treats and bones is that they aren't easily digestible. When dogs are chewing rawhide and pieces break off, they can't digest it. Because rawhide isn't digestible, it can pose a choking hazard or get lodged in the digestive tract.
Most vets and the Humane Society recommend against giving dogs rawhide, even though many pets find that it tastes good. Some well-known pet stores like Petco have even stopped selling rawhide.
What are no rawhide dog bones?
No rawhide dog bones are simply that – they don't contain rawhide. Although rawhide isn't a great option for dogs, there are other bones that are safe, healthy, and delicious that your pet is sure to love!
The best no-rawhide dog bones are those that are truly all-natural, meaning they don't contain any genetically modified ingredients, preservatives, or artificial flavors. All-natural dog bones, bully sticks, and beef trachea are all good for dogs.
While bones can be labeled as "natural," they may still have these added ingredients, so be sure to check the labels. The fewer ingredients, the better. Single-ingredient treats and chews made from grass-fed animals are best, like the ones we'll share below!
