    Default Pigs Ears...

    What are peoples thoughts on giving them to a pup?

    She loves chewing things and loves food so thought it might help her out..

    Some dogs will get diarreah from them, they are rather rich and can also give bad breath.

    One a week is more than enough and possibly a bit too frequent. My dog adores his pigs ears, but only gets one a month.

    Try brisket bones/soft bones that can be crunched up and destroyed - lamb is usually best for this I find.

    Johnny loves pigs ears - we have never had any issues with them. I only give him one a week or so.

    He also loves bones too!

    Pigs ears are super high fat - so definitely something in moderation. My dog can polish one off in much less than 5 minutes. Same deal with the rawhide bones, and pigs trotter slices etc. She was a bit slower as a puppy.

    We've found that a deer antler piece and a cow hoof more durable - but if I leave it with her too long she gets tummy upsets from these too.

    Carrot seems to work better - not that these last very long.

    Or I put some of her dry food ration into a squirrel dude and let her work that out. That can take a good 20 minutes or so.

    My minis liked it as a puppy but now he does not eat which is very unusual for "stomach"
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Deer antlers are great, there are plenty of places that sell them, here's one: Rainbow Deer Farm | K9 Magic - Joint and Arthritis Support For Dogs | Deer Velvet Antler Products

    I have never been a big fan of pigs ears. I have fed them in the past as a treat but found more problems that benefits with them.
