***Rawhide Warning***

 I have to say I have never been a fan of rawhide, it has always posed a serious threat to your dogs safety, but this is extremely upsetting and dangerous!

 Walmart sells a rawhide like chew called Exer-Hide  this particular “treat” is responsible for MAJOR seizures and death. This product is manufactured in Brazil. Incidents have been happening since December 2010 but they still keep this on the market, Please be warned and share with anyone you know that has a dog that eats rawhide treats.

Some of the dangers associated with Rawhide chews are as follows;

Since rawhide is not regulated in any way, it could happen again. These foreign hides may also contain other harmful things such as antibiotics, lead, or insecticides that could adversely affect the health of your dog.

“Choking is a hazard, and rawhide can cause gastric irritation when dogs chew on it often, gastric irritation can also cause vomiting and extreme discomfort in dogs.

Intestinal blockages can occur and are costly to repair if your pet has to undergo a surgery.

Remember your dogs health depends on the products you choose to give them, so always get all the facts first before trying anything new. Some new products on the market are potato bones, Yes that’s right made from real potatoes!

Your vet should be able to give you a list of the appropriate types of toys for your dog.


About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
