Compressed rawhides, sometimes called pressed rawhides, are natural rawhide products containing bits of ground rawhide or strips of rawhide pressed into a desired shape. A compressed rawhide made of strips will typically last longer than a regular rawhide. These rawhides are great for aggressive chewers. A compressed rawhide made of ground bits will not last longer than a regular rawhide and come apart very easy. These ground rawhide chews are great for dogs that need some help. Compressed rawhide bones should prevent your dog from chewing off and swallowing rawhide bits that are too small.
