    Default Dehydrated Pork Hock

    Hello everyone,

    I purchased dehydrated pork hocks (dph) today with an intention to give to my dogs while we are camping remote areas. What is your opinion on this?
    My dogs are shih tzu (3 yo-8kg) and mini schnauzer (2.5 yo-10kg).

    Also do you have other suggestions for food/treats which do not need refrigeration and can be a replacement for raw bones?

    Thanks

    If they like it I don't see a problem. They are high in fat though, so if they eat it too fast, I wouldn't be rushing to get more.
    Mine used to eat pig ears and they would devour them in 10 minutes.

    I would be taking their regular dry dog food. Cans of dog food won't hurt them either (phase it into their diet before they leave if you do not use it) with the occasional pigs ear, whatever for treats.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Venison and Lamb ears are good and come from New Zealand.

    Thank you everyone,

    I gave one piece ( 1/2 hock) each to the dogs and mini sch finished within 5 minutes (did not eat hard pieces-I prefer that way anyway) s/tzu hid some where in the garden. No runny poo, etc. Good result I guess. I am wondering if I can soak the DPH for a few hours so that it can be too dry. Has anyone tried?
