I have heard they are hard on the stomach of dogs.

Rawhide is not easily digestible. Some dogs have no problems chewing and eating rawhide, others may exhibit intestinal problems (loose stools) after injesting rawhide. Also, if you have a dog that will swallow a large piece of rawhide whole, it can cause blockages.

I don't think they are really good for dogs. I've even read some are being recalled. I do feed my 2 labs pig ears occasionally. Their daily treats are Cadet chicken breasts--all natural and all chicken. If your using the rawhide to help with gums and tetth, I've used frozen beef neck bone for years and have never had to have the dogs teeth brushed or cleaned

I have heard the same and I'm not sure but for me I think the best and cheapest treats are in the meat department at the grocery store. I get smoked turkey legs, pigs feet and no dog I've had has not liked them or had problems after eating them.Another thing I used to do is cut up a steak give it a quick browning and put it in a baggie when I would be going on a long trip or doing training. Just a few alternatives to dry dog treats(which I still will use)
