Some animals, such as horses or alpacas, are occasionally seen to be chewing leather, for example leather straps. This habit is interpreted by veterinarians as a way of relieving stress and that it is soothing for the animal. Furthermore, the chewing process - similar to humans chewing gum in - increases the salivary flow which, in turn, regulates the acid-base ratio in the mouth and prevents tooth decay.
