    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are pig ears good for dogs?
    Yes, pig ears a great chew for your pet as long as they are sourced properly. You might think ears are a very fatty treat, but in fact pig ears are made of cartilage, so they’re high in protein and fairly low in fat. Cartilage contains natural glucosamine and chondroitin, so chewing on ears can benefit your dog’s joints. They’re soft and easy on the teeth, so they’re good chews for dogs with sensitive teeth or dogs who prefer a leisurely chew. And because they’re just cartilage, pig ears are quite digestible for your dog. Just monitor your dog if he’s a gulper who doesn’t chew his food thoroughly, so he doesn’t choke or get a bowel obstruction from swallowing big chunks of ear.
    Are pig ears still on recall?
    Pig ears are not still on recall. In 2019 the FDA issued a warning about pig ears for dogs due to salmonella risk. The products in question came from Argentina, Brazil and Colombia. The ears came from various vendors and were sold at some major retail chains. While only some ears were on recall for possible salmonella outbreak, Jack's Premium ears have always been source in the USA or Canada and smoked to high temperatures that kill any possible bacteria that could harm you or your pet. However, the pig ear recall is no longer in affect nationwide.
    Do vets recommend pig ears?
    Most vets would recommend a pig ear as a natural chew for your dog. They would suggest a pig ear over a rawhide because rawhide is often treated with chemicals, is indigestible, and is known for causing intestinal blockages.
