Rawhide – the nasty truth
Hides are stripped from the cow and soaked in chemicals to ensure it “preserves” the product during transport to help prevent it going rancid/rotten enroute to the tannery!
Now at the tannery, it’s time for another chemical bath of ash-lye solution or a highly toxic recipe of sodium sulphide liming. This toxic solution disintegrates any hair or fat that may be left on the hide.
Now it’s time to make that hide shine, and more visually appealing to the dog owner! Hides are bleached and whitened using a solution of hydrogen peroxide and bleach; this will also help remove the smell of the rotten or putrid leather.
Independent testing of rawhides has been known to contain: Lead, Arsenic, Mercury, Chromium salts, Formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals.
What is the pledge?
I promise to join the #mydogsaysnotorawhide movement and raise awareness on why this treat is dangerous and needs to be banned in Australia.
I promise to do this by saving and sharing the below image on my social media platforms as well as the hashtag #mydogsaysnotorawhide and pledge to NEVER give my dog a rawhide treat, and opt for a more healthy and nutritional treat.
