Is rawhide good for dogs?

Rawhide can be a great treat for your dog and it provides many dental benefits. As a single ingredient chew, rawhide is easy to digest and helps clean your dog's teeth as they chew. Rawhide is also a great way to keep your dog occupied and away from destructive chewing habits.

If your dog is currently chewing on hard plastic or hard rubber chew toys, we recommend trying rawhide as a safer alternative. Our rawhide chews for dogs are 100% hormone, antibiotic, and preservative free, creating an irresistible beef taste.

Not All Rawhide is Made the Same

There are some concerns about rawhide safety, but if you choose a reputable brand and supervise your dog while they chew, rawhide can be a healthy and enjoyable treat for your four-legged friend.

Rawhide is made from the inner layer of cowhide and is often treated with chemicals to preserve it. In addition, rawhide can be a choking hazard if your dog swallows large pieces of it. If you do choose to give your dog rawhide, be sure to supervise them while they chew and dispose of any pieces that are small enough to be swallowed. 

HotSpot Pets offers a variety of rawhide chews made from USDA Certified, Grass-Fed Beef that is not treated with chemical preservatives or artificial flavors. Click here to browse our popular rawhide chips, bones, and rolls!
