Small chew - for dogs 16 to 45 lbs.
In contrast to rawhide chews, No-Hide chews contain NO animal hides and chemicals are NOT used to produce them
No-Hide chews are made with 100% human grade food ingredients that are nutritious, highly digestible and completely healthy for your dog.
No-Hides are made in a human food processing facility in the USA. The protein flavors we offer (beef, chicken, salmon, pork, venison and peanut butter) are all human grade and sourced in the US from humanely-raised animals.
The ingredients â€“ olive oil, brown rice, eggs, agar agar and the naturally-derived enzymes from banana and pineapple (bromelain) - are mixed together with the protein flavor. In a proprietary cooking process, the mixture is hand-rolled into its shape, hand-basted with a slurry of the protein flavor (chicken, beef, pork, venison, peanut butter or salmon) and individually air-dried to form the long lasting, tasty chew.

Some interesting facts provided by Earth Animal about these
No-Hides are made in the rolling farmlands of PA in a small,
human food processing facility by dedicated workers who carefully blend, bake
and pack them with a personal touch.
The “coating” is a slurry of chicken, beef, pork, venison,
peanut butter or salmon that is basted on to No-Hide for extra flavor for your
dog. The slurry always matches the protein of the No-Hide. The coating of the No-Hides, when moistened,
could come off and soil light-colored carpets. You may want to limit chewing to
tile or wood floors or give No-Hides to your dog when it is in its crate (which
helps your dog build a very positive association with being in a crate). You
can also easily teach your dog to lay on a mat or towel when it is chewing a
No-Hide. The mat or towel can then easily be washed if necessary.
No-Hides were tested by a facility that is associated with
the Oklahoma State University and the Veterinary School. Both rawhide and
No-Hide were tested in an In-Vitro study using scientific equivalents of
stomach and intestinal juices. The results showed that No-Hide was 56%
digestible and that rawhide was only 6% digestible.
The beef, chicken, pork and venison used in No-Hides are all
sourced in the US from animals that are humanely- raised and free-range,
grass-fed. All the protein ingredients come from animals that have been USDA
inspected and approved for human consumption (aka “human grade”). The salmon
used is 100% wild caught, usually from the North Atlantic seas. We never use
factory-farmed animals or fish.
You might find it useful to know that when the USDA inspects
meat animals, they designate those animals as either “inspected and approved
for human consumption” or “inspected and condemned for human consumption but
allowed to be salvaged for pet food”. There is a third category, which is
“condemned to tankage”, which means it can’t be used for any type of food
product. So, if you are evaluating a product that is only labeled as “USDA
inspected”, you might want to ask the manufacturer to specify if it was
inspected and approved for human consumption or inspected and condemned but
allowed to be salvaged for pet food. There is a difference.
No-Hide is made in a human food processing facility that is
certified by the USDA and the FDA to manufacture food for people. Because this
is a human food processing facility, USDA inspectors are present whenever
production is taking place. This ensures you that the safety guidelines set up
by both the USDA and the FDA are being adhered to. All raw ingredients that are
used in No- Hide have been USDA inspected and approved for human consumption
We do not add any sodium (salt) or sugar to our No Hide Chews.
