    Rawhide

    Advertisements
    Are pigs' ears considered to be a rawhide? Are they 100% digestible?


    I do not want to give my dog a rawhide but I do not know if pigs' ears fall under that category. Any help?

    ummmm...They seem to flake off unlike a true rawhide that become chewy.

    My dog can eat a ear in about 5 -10 mins. I normally get marrow bones from the meat department and fill them with peanut butter and then freeze them.

    Ears and Rawhides scare me a little. I watch her like a hawk if she eats one.

    I think pigs ears are more of a choking danger than rawhides... well compressed rawhides anyway. I give my lab the big compressed rawhides for heavy chewers.

    Your better off getting those "white" bones and filling them with peanut butter etc. I buy them, put some american cheese in them, zap them in the microwave for a few seconds and smear it into the nooks and crannies. Keeps them busy for hours and it's not a lot of cheese, like a 1/2 slice each if that. They also get run through the diswasher which I like too...along with the Kongs and Nylabones.

    "white" bones....you mean like hooves or whatever? I'm not too sure which bones those are.

    My dog eats them and hasn't ever had a problem. She chews on them and they turn kind of gummy and she eats that.

    They are the femur bones they sell in the pet store. Usually they have them filled with peanut butter, cheese, meat stuff but I buythe hollow ones and stuff them myself.

    Yep those are the ones I was talking about aka Marrow bones and you can reuse them over and over again.
