Product Description

Wholesome Hide Flat Knot Rawhide Bones use thick, fresh 100% beefhide that is sourced and manufactured in the USA. The  unique way of processing allows them to keep the "Collagen Flavor Layer" for added health and flavor.  This layer provides the intense flavor for which Wholesome Hide is famous. 

You are providing a chew treat that is USA-sourced and manufactured, processed fresh and does not contain harsh, potentially dangerous chemicals.

Ingredient:  Beef Hide  (All fresh USA rawhide has a thin layer of collagen on one side--this provides the intense flavor for which Wholesome Hide is famous.)

Sizes:  4-5in., 7-8 in. & 10-11in.

Your pet should always be supervised when eating any chew or treat, and rawhide chews should be removed and put away when your dog is finished with them.

About Rawhide

The quality of any rawhide product is entirely dependent on the quality of the raw material --the hide. Wholesome Hide rawhide treats are made from fresh 100% USA rawhide from domestic sources. This hide is tranported to Wholesome Hide in refrigerated trucks to prevent spoilage. The hide is then tumbled clean with fresh water, and treats are cut and shaped by hand. Then they are dried in large open-rack drying rooms over several days. This is very much the way dried fruit is produced for human consumption. The results of this water bathing and climate-controlled drying are a product that is uniform in size, shape and texture with a rich golden hue.

By contrast, other rawhide chews that are made from imported hides from Mexico, China, Thailand or South America are often old and thin and are transported in non-refrigerated vehicles over the course of several weeks--or months. Then, if the hides have become discolored by spoilage, heavy chemical processing is required before they can be made into dog treats. It is difficult to know what chemicals or processes may be used in treating these hides, as reporting and inspection requirements vary greatly from country to country.  The products are usually dyed white with titanium dioxide which is a chemical commonly used to make white paint. This processing strips away the Collagen Flavor Layer, the unique ingredient left intact by the minimal processing used in making Wholesome Hide products.

Exactly what IS rawhide?

Rawhide is the inner layer of the hide of any hoofed animal. The tough outer layer is used for leather shoes, garments and upholstery, while the softer, inner layer is cut and formed into different shapes for dog chews.  Rawhide is high in protein, low in fat, and has fewer calories per ounce than a typical dog biscuit. That means you can satisfy your pet with a healthy treat that won’t add to its weight.

U.S.A. Beefhide

U.S.A. beefhide is premium rawhide made from corn-fed cows raised within the U.S. for human consumption. This beefhide is typically thicker, longer-lasting and is treated naturally. Unlike most imported hides, U.S.A. beefhide is fresher and produced under highly-controlled conditions giving you peace of mind when offering rawhide treats to your pet.

Is rawhide safe for my dog?

Rawhide is one of the most natural things a dog can chew on.  However, not all rawhide is the same.  Rawhide chews made in the U.S.A. with high-quality U.S.A. beef hide are cleaner, thicker and more durable. That means that your dog can spend more time “wetting it down” and tearing off smaller pieces than with other rawhide treats. Conversely, dogs chewing thinner, chemically-processed rawhide treats can break off larger pieces of dry rawhide which can occasionally cause problems if swallowed.

How often should I give rawhide to my dog?

How often you allow your pet to enjoy its rawhide treat depends upon how aggressively her or she likes to chew. A good rule of thumb is to let your pet chew a rawhide toy an hour a day.

If your dog enjoys chewing rawhide frequently, make sure it always has two or three rawhides to keep it busy. By providing your pet with a variety of chewing activities, you make the experience more interesting. If your dog is a less aggressive chewer, providing one or two rawhides may be enough. Be sure to remove any rawhide treats that are left unchewed for several days.
