THE KILLER 'TREAT'
The dangers of giving 'Rawhide' (processed hide) products to your dog are pretty grim, but did you realise that you're poisoning your dog by feeding this choking & intestinal-obstructing - KILLER 'TREAT'
Your pet will ingest ...
Glue (any sort)
An Ash-lye solution
Plus many other toxic chemicals incl. Carcinogen FD&C Red 40 & a highly toxic recipe of sodium sulphide liming & sodium benzoate, a cancer-causing chemical associated with leukemia & other blood cancers. When constantly chewed, its a case of slow, long term poisoning.
Pets At Home sell a huge amount of these dangerous, chews, in many sizes, designs & colours, especially at Christmas, disguised as toys, with added bows & in 'stockings'. Dogs WILL choke or die due to buyers being unaware of this horrendous KILLER 'TREAT'
It has caused... Stomach torsion, Excruciating pain, Fainting, Sickness, Vomiting, Choking, Diarrhea, Poisoning, Kidney failure, Coma & DEATH
Pets At Home are a good chain, (with this exception) & I support their VIP programme, but this dangerous money spinner should be banned, if we want to save our dogs from being poisoned, from choking or from dying.
With around 370 stores, it would make a huge difference if Pets At Home boycotted China's 'Hide' items. If they stopped buying this disgusting product, it could lead the way for other outlets to follow, for example ...
- Amazon (sell 1000s of hide chews)
- Jollys pets (61 super stores)
- Tescos (3,376 stores)
- Sainsburys (1,374 stores)
- Asda (525 stores)
- Morrisons (569 stores)
- B&M (560 stores)
- 'Pound' stores
- The Range (140 stores)
- Just For Pets (25 stores)
- Pets Corner (161 stores) they call themselves the 'ethical store', we counted 30 rawhide products on their web page
Not included are online & independent, pet stores.
Up to 22 million dogs a year in China, are being brutalised in order to supply that much processed Hide! Surely that's worth Signing & Sharing?
Boycott 'rawhide' stock at ALL outlets, not just Pets At Home. They are all culpable as long as they continue to harm our dogs, who are forced to chew on their distant cousins (DOGS and CATS).
Hide products are indigestible; once swallowed, hide & poisons sit in your pet's stomach causing an obstruction, leading to many a dog's death. There's simply not enough time to get to a vet to surgically remove this sickening product. Dogs have become comatose, have fainted & been sick for days due to the poisons.

The vast majority of heavily processed hide (incorrectly promoted as Rawhide) comes from China. Stolen domestic dogs & unfortunate, trusting, street dogs are trapped, brutaly transported to 'processing' locations & cruelly, hung by their paws for days, while being continually beaten with iron bars or shovels. The Chinese believe that terrorising dogs prior to skinning & boiling them alive, makes their meat taste better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en-zkihG-4w
This 'Dog Meat Trade' & 'Fur Trade', export & supply 85% of the world's leather. The dog meat is used for public consumption in China & the fur is used to make coats, footwear, toys, & decorate clothing & trinkets, plus handbags & shoes - (worldwide, we are wearing these products). Then of course, tons of pelts are used to make millions of Hide dog chews. Dog skins are sent to Italy, India, Germany the US, all of whom (but not only those countries), use those skins to make items we wear. Don't take my word, see PETA'S video which supports my claims -https://www.facebook.com/peta2/videos/vb.8382915559/10154345491130560/?type=2&theater
Eating dog meat has not stopped at China's borders. I stopped eating Chinese takeaways a long time ago! Before I became vegetarian. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cl32qVD0gYA
With no monetary outlet, there would be little point in the Chinese brutalising 22 million beautiful dogs a year for Hide treats. With no end-user, (thats us), we'd be responsible for saving the lives of millions of dogs, plus cats, racoons, foxes & rabbits, thus preventing horrendous suffering & torture. Saving millions of dog's lives a year, in China alone, must be worth Signing & Sharing
I plan to contact Pets At Home when I have enough signatures to make a difference. (Now done, see below). If they see how many of us reject this truly horrendous item, I'm hopeful they will take action, because if they do, other sellers may follow their example.
Please REJECT this KILLER 'TREAT'. Don't buy ANY Hide product, from Pets At Home (or from anywhere) if you value your dog's life.
Help Pets At Home, other pet stores & ALL Hide sellers, accept the horrendous truth by signing this petition.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, for caring.
