Dogs getting sick from pigs ears?

Post by Steven Fletch » Tue, 17 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I know the topic of pigs ears has been discussed before
but I would like to get a consensus if it's possible.

Do you give your dog pigs ears?

Has your Vet recomended NOT giving your dog pigs ears?

Has your dog gotten sick from eating pigs ears?

What were the symptoms?

I'm asking this because a friend e-mailed me with information
regarding dogs getting sick, maybe with E-coli bacteria, from
eating pigs ears and I would like to know if this is common.

I would like to compile your responses so I would appreciate an e-mail
from you.

Thanks, in advance for any information you can give me.

YES!!  My Dog, Holly Belle Bassett Hound got really sick from pig ears.
She had quite a bout with diarrhea.  This happened when she was about 8
months old.  The vet recommended that I NOT give her pigears, and that
they can cause doggies to have tender tummies.  She recommended raw hide
bone made in the U.S.A..  That is what I give her now, and she hasn't had
problems since!
