I've done pig ears before but between them and the rawhide there is to much of a chance for blockages, splintering and puncturing of the mouth or chipping the teeth. I stick to the jumbone or dentabone type stuff weesha mentioned most of the time. The only reason I get the bigger rawhide (rolls or boney looking things) is when they've been really good and deserve something that will last them awhile.

Chicken Bones

I have read many of the threads dismiss the use of chicken bones, were I would agree this is wisdom if they are cooked, but chicken bones uncooked are fine. Any bone cooked is not wise, but chicken bones have a tendency to spliter once cooked easier than others.

Many of these urban legends developed because of manufactures of dog treats wanting you to purchase their product. Many of them have great products, but all-natural is always the best route if possible.

Just use caution when giving your dog any kind of bone...the size, your dogs digestive track. Giving a tea cup size dog a pig ear as alot of gravey for that dogs sensitive stomach to digest, it's natural to mess it's digestive track up, but to a larger breed proably won't do much harm.

I know of people that give raw knuckle bones but, I don't care for bones personally.

I give pig ears to certain ones of my dogs, but not all because they are FULL of fat.

Our Dogs eat all kinds of bones, from chicken to giant thigh bones. Raw Bones are safe for Dogs as long as you ensure you are careful about small Dogs being abe to bit off large chunks.

The dangers of bones are mostly myths brought about by Dogs being given cooked bones which are very dangerous as they can easily splinter.

Our lot have a mixture of raw bones, mainly chicken, lamb and beef.

Chicken wings and carcasses are a good to start for a dog that's never had raw bones before.

If it isn't a cow femer (a.k.a. Dino-Bone), Cassie doesn't get it. The bone in the picture had knuckles at both ends but she chewed them off.
