These are bones, not rawhide, about 8" and come in cheese and bacon flavors. My dogs LOVE them and they last forever. My teething bullmstiff puppy can get through them in about a week!! The packaging says they are 100% digestible and natural. I buy them at my local petstore which sells really great foods you can't find at Petsmart. I totally trust them. I just wanted to try and get some reviews on these bones, but can't understand any of the languages online. I can only find them on websites from foreign countries...mostly European. Anyone had these before or know anything about them?

Is that the correct spelling? If so, you weren't kidding about reviews being hard to find! All foreign sites came up.

Was there a manufacturer name on the packaging? Distributer? Website of any kind? If not, you could call the store and ask. Any of that info should get us to some online info/reviews. Now I'm curious!

Well, good news and bad news. Good first - that is the correct spelling and the bones last FOREVER! Bad news - I'm pretty sure they are made in China!eek That's why I wanted to read some write ups on them. I guess I should quit giving them to the dogs until I can find out more info. But the store I get them from I a very reputable store, so I thought that was a good sign. But I guess you never know. On some of the websites, you can read the packaging on the photos. But that didn't really help me...still couldn't find anything. Maybe I'm just a crappie internet searcher! Anyone who has any more insight would be a big help!

I also found that they are made in China. While I did find that they say they are 100% digestable the ingredients are too great, and there are other natural options that I would prefer. The biggest turn off though is China.

I've HEARD that just because they are made in China doesn't mean that they are bad. It depends on the company distributing them and how strict their standards are.

So far I just plain don't believe the companies that tell me that they inspect the plants...etc, etc - So I'll do some reasearch too, but for now I'll stick with the chews I can find that are made in the USA. I'll let you know if I find anything differentway to go

They are definitely made in China and I found the ingredients on line "natural vegetable starches, rawhide granules, soya lechitin, potassium sorbate and assorted flavors. 100 % digestible. "

Poison is 100% digestible too! I would definitely not feed them. There is no way of knowing what else is in them.

Braided bullysticks can last longer. Their are several brands that don't stink. They souldn't stink so the smell is over bearing.
