A natural chew for your dearest canines, these chews have been proven beneficial both for dental health and satisfaction of your dog’s natural urge of chewing. Rawhide is collected from the inner layer of the large cleft-hoofed bovine animals. The quality of these chews depends on the animal source and the country they are living in. The inner layer of the bovine animal hides are soft and cut into different shapes and sizes for dog chews.
Animal hides are very flexible because of collagen, the protein contained in the cartilage of the animals and their bone and teeth. When the collagen of the animals is dried, they become stiff. The American variety of rawhide is oven-dried in such a way that they soften when chewed.
