Hey, I couldn't find another thread on this, so I thought I'd ask. How do you all feel about pig ears for dogs?
I got some for the pups tonight as a treat for being so wonderfully behaved in the store and they didn't shatter at all. Penny, of course, gobbled hers down in a matter of seconds. But Milo licked and gnawed at his and it lasted him a few minutes. I figure not everything I eat is healthy, so the dogs should get a nice fatty treat every now and then too.I've never tried them, but don't they splinter?
When our horses get their hooves trimmed, we save them for the dogs and they LOVE them! They don't last real long though.I had in the past given my dogs pig ears and wow they loved them! I use to buy them at Sams club a big bulk bag! Then I did a little Investigating on them, beacuse one of my dogs started to choke on the ear, then spit it up (yuck) and so that was scary! They are greasy and I have heard of a salmonella scare last year with the ears. Dogs can get cut throats from them also! I just now stick away from them. Even those hooves they sell not good for them. I had a friend tell me to go to the horse stable and get fresh hooves if I wanted the dogs to have them, they are much better for them. So now I get the bully sticks and I cant rememeber (UGH) Merrick sells some treat they like (ugh)! So for me now after my one dog choking coughing it up (yuck) I just stick away from pig ears!
I have a place not to far away and I need to go there and ask(or gee phone first haha) if they either sell these or just give them away! But I am thinkingh if they have dogs there which I am sure they do, they probably gobble them up haha!:smile: I am going to call today! They will let me know if I can have some then!When our horses get their hooves trimmed, we save them for the dogs and they LOVE them! They don't last real long though.
