    This popped up on my FB feed and I've posted this to the healthy treats thread. A member was using the Salmon version. But I thought it might get more views in its own thread just in case someone else is using these.

    That's is sad! Any chews given to a dog should be supervised. The owner was on a conference call. Besides the treat or bone should be sized to the dog on the package. But I guess it was not on it?
    Part of it got caught in its throat.

    Needless death. Had the item been sized properly for the dog this could have been avoided.

    I do wish pet products had some standard sizing. At the end of the article it says a giant dog is anything over 75 lbs., but the suggested size of 11" sounds appropriate.

    So sad. :( I won't give our dogs Greenies for this reason, even though they're supposed to be safe.

    Oh wow. So sad. I give those chews to my dogs! They stink to high heavens but always thought they were the healthier option. These days though are their really any healthy options? :down:

    I've never heard of these. Still, very sad :(

    We give raw meaty bones, venison and lamb ribs, beef tracheas, ducks feet and dried rabbits ears with fur. Always under supervision.

    I keep a freezer draw full of Kobi's treats. I buy frozen and then separate and bag the treats individually. Cost wise, you can't beat it. For example 1kg of ducks feet = £2.50 a great way to save money and give a good, healthy treat.

    Oh, I forgot these...

    Frozen ducks necks. They are classed as edible bones due to them being soft, pliable and easily crushed. When you can buy 1kg for approximately £2.20 it's an absolute bargain.

    Here is an UPDATE on Earth Animal product

    Is No-Hide Dog Treat Actually Hide?
    upload_2017-7-28_10-24-5.gif
    A dog has died. The treat stuck in the dog’s throat – which killed her – is sold to consumers as a “healthier alternative to Rawhide”. However…a PhD leather expert told us No-Hide dog treat “is absolutely rawhide split material.”

    Ever since the rawhide stuff made the news years and years ago I've stopped using it. It was nasty. I remember it would get all balled up and sticky and gross. I'm surprised they still sell the stuff. I made the mistake of commenting on it to someone behind me purchasing it at Petco. They didn't want to hear it - their dog "loved" it. I still cringe when I see people buying it especially during the holidays when they dye them and make them into holiday shapes.

    I bought some beef-hide treats which said they were not raw-hide but better and safer. When I mentioned it to Kaiser's care giver, she objected to it by saying they are probably bleached. So I went home and re-read the package and it said it wasn't bleached but the things were white! So, reluctantly, I thought better safe than sorry and returned it. Months later I got an email from Costco plus a letter with a recall notice! No dogs died, but some had gotten diarrhea. I was so glad I listened!

    I agree. I stopped giving them years ago but it wasn't until fairly recently that I watched a video on how they were made and nearly threw up. :wideyed:

    We've been using a local company's dehydrated sweet potato chews.
    They're a one ingredient product.

    I'm not sure why they smell to high heaven, but he loves them.

    I was just looking into getting a dehydrator for us. Sweet potato is something we can do for the dog. I can see that being chewy, but how long does one piece usually last?

    I think they spray stinky things on dog treats so people think the dog is enjoying it more.

    They only last a minute or so.

    If they are spraying something, then their packaging advertising is deceptive.

    Ugh, only a minute?! Not even worth the effort. Makes me wonder what the smell is. Can't be as bad as a bully stick haha.
