Traditional rawhide products

Petco removes chew products from shelves


Petco has stopped selling a selection of traditional chew products as the company now launches a new wellness initiative to help pets live as healthy a life as possible.
Affected are 32 traditional rawhide products. They will be replaced with new products that are perforated, so that even torn large pieces are easier for a dog's stomach to digest, according to reports from U.S. online news magazines.
According to a press release, Petco said 71 per cent of customers in a 2019 customer survey had expressed concerns about rawhide - including choking hazards, digestibility and ingredient origins.
