Are Pigs Ears good for dogs?

Over recent years, dog owners have become more aware of what they are feeding their dogs and how important this can be to their health. Rawhide, for example, is not as harmless as we once thought, for a number of reasons. In fact, rawhide can even be life threatening. 

To answer the question, yes, pigs ears are good for dogs and if you are looking for an alternative to rawhide treats, look no further than our pigs ears. They are a wholesome, long lasting chew that will keep your dog’s happy for hours.

Pigs ears are easily digestible and contain a high amount of cartilage which helps to strengthen your dog’s jaw muscles and clean their teeth.

Why choose T.Forrest Pigs Ears?

Our pigs ears are manufactured in the UK at our family premises in Lancashire, where we slowly air dry our treats to lock in all the flavours, goodness and nutrients. We pride ourselves in the quality of our treats, so you and your dog’s won’t be disappointed. Our pigs ears are free from chemicals and additives, which means they are a single ingredient chew that are ideal for those with dietary restrictions or food sensitives. 

When feeding your dog any treat, you should always keep a watchful eye on them. Some dogs get too excited and try to swallow the whole ear or tear off large chunks to swallow.  Fresh drinking water should always be available too. 

Pigs ears are a complementary addition to your dog’s diet and should not be fed on their own. Introducing new food to your dog’s diet could give them diarrhoea or loose stool, so you might want to cut them into smaller pieces or try our pigs ear strips to see how your dog handles them.

Not sure whether your dog likes pigs ears or not? Try our pigs ear strips, they are a great taste tester for our full pigs ears.
