First, rawhide is largely indigestible. That’s right: indigestible. I have known a friend’s dog die right in front of her because of this deadly treat. I think they should be banned from the shelf. The only thing that is good about it is that the whole animal is being used and not wasted for giving up their life.
Dogs have died or had serious complications requiring surgery from blockages
caused by rawhide pieces. Our Porkhide products, by comparison, are about
95% digestible, meaning that there’s very little waste. Also, our Porkhides
are made of layers of pork skin, and those layers come apart as the dog

that they are 93% protein. Rawhide mostly ends up as undigested pieces in
the back yard, and it has little or no nutrition at all.
Much rawhide is treated with dangerous chemicals-ash-lye solutions,
bleaches, etc. In theory, rawhide that says it’s made in the USA shouldn’t

hear about them. For that reason, Dr Jane doesn’t use any beef in any
products she formulates.
Finally, here’s what our Life’s Abundance websites say about Rawhide vs
Porkhide: “Rawhides are cured with harsh chemicals (like ash-lye solutions
and bleach) and are known to cause choking, throat irritations and
