I used to buy the regular rawhide,but now I buy the compressed ones.The pices if they chew them off are small (they kinda crumble into little bits).Always make sure if you give them one(OR greenies for that matter)that you only do it when you are able to supervise them.And take them away if they manage to chew off a piece.

I am not an advocate of the rawhides... We used to get them for Missy all the time ( the ones with the knots at the end).
Well one night she was in the room with me but blocked by a piece of furniture as she was chewing away.. I then herard a terible sound and went to see what ws up.. She was CHOKING!!! a small piece had broken off and was lodged in ther throat! Thank God I was able to get her to expel it. I hate to think what would have happened if I hadn't been in the same room with her at the time.
So PLEASE! if you do give the rawhides.. so so only under superviion and when they get slimey.. take them away.
I have read and heard vets opinions on the rawhides and many have siad they have had to do surgeries on pooches who have had blockages form the rawhides as thay don't digest well.
