Gifted With Rawhide This Christmas? Here's What To Do With It!

Did you know that producing rawhide begins with the splitting of an animal hide from cattle? The top grain is generally tanned and made into leather products, while the inner portion, in its “raw” state, goes to the dogs! Removing the hair from hides often involves a highly toxic recipe: sodium sulphide liming.
In the post-tannery stage, hides are washed and whitened using a solution of HYDROGEN PEROXIDE and BLEACH. And that’s just one step.
Other poisonous residues that may show up in rawhide include ARSENIC and FORMALDEHYDE — Even dog skin is a possibility.
Say “thanks!” and toss it in the trash. Your dogs will look sad, but they don’t know the risk!
