Many dogs receive Christmas presents but do not gift your dog a Rawhide chews as it may be toxic.  These are not by-product of the beef industry nor they are made of dehydrated meat. Rather, rawhide is by-product of the leather industry. Leather chunks go through many chemical and bleaching processes before to become a dog chew. There are risks of choking and blockage of the gastrointestinal tract if your dog swallows large pieces.

 

Another common Christmas items that could be dangerous for your dog if ingested are:

Christmas tree pieces

Gift wrapping and packaging

Ribbons

Baubles

 Sticky tape
