Q: Are these treats safe?

I received my free treats from Zootoo - but now I'm too scared to give - even under supervision.
What do you know about any of these. Thanks!!

I thank all of you for your help. I've never given rawhide and reading about some choking - I never will. The cup cakes I gave and I sat with them. The denta -treats was like tiny bits of rubber being broken off. I took them away. I'm just giving the cakes and nothing else. I'll stick to my home-made peanut butter treats they love so much. =) You are all very sweet!

If you don't feel right about them, trust your gut! Rawhide is particularly worrisome in small pieces.

the cupcakes should be fine, but i would toss the other two. they're not digestible and raw hide especially can cause many serious problems.

I never give my dogs any treats while I'm away I would never give any raw hide at all it can cause a blockage especially in the smaller breeds

I have given my dog all of those and haven't had any problems. I've heard rawhide isn't safe, but I would just supervise them while they eat them.

I have given my little dogs the Dingo cupcakes and they love them! They are rawhide, but they are processed in little chips so they can not choke on the treats, unless of course they try to swallow it whole! The rawhide and chicken bones however I don't like, that type of rawhide can cause choking, so don't give unless you can supervise.

I wish I knew more about these. I agree with Anna. If you don't feel comfortable giving them to your dogs, I would not give them. Did you look in the reviews to see if anyone has done a review on them yet? That would be my next source of information.

I have never seen those before, except those little raw-hide bones, which I don't give to my dogs because they are too small and afraid of a choking hazard. If you don't feel safe and you are scared to give them the treats, toss them. You pet's health and well being is more important than trying treats out on them.
