I'm not sure they are, I'm not sure they are available in the US yet, unless you bought them in Canada. They are definitely not smoked, so if the ones you got are, they are different.

Stay away from pigs ears made in China.

My vet likened them to a 'Mars Bar' for dogs!

They can be like raw hide, so keep an eye out in case of blockage

We refer pigs ears to a bag potato chips! Not the best or healthiest treat on the market! Definitely a treat to be given in moderation..

Thank you all for the info. I don't want my boy to gain any extra pounds, is raw hide bad for digs? I thought it was good for chewing on. Looks like I need to find him something else he can dance around =)

Use to give my pups pig ears 20 years ago. They loved! em. When my pups reached around 6 or 7 months? they stopped eating them and took them outside to burry. they loved em. But haven't had a pup in many years so dont know about recent issues. Have aleays been told rawhide doesn't digest so have never given my pups/dogs rawhide.

I buy raw pig ears from the Asian market. My girls love them. I would never buy the ones from the pet stores. Only the raw kind, for the reasons mentioned above.

But to answer your question, my dogs go nuts over peanut butter (all natural peanut butter from the health food store, crunchy) filled cow hooves.
