I have looked on line and I have a read a lot of different things about pigs ears. They went from a once a week treat to a once a day treat for the dogs and I am just not sure if that is healthy or if it is low calorie so it is fine. Miranda is on a diet and she was getting 1/4 of a cup 2X a day. No change in weight but she is MUCH more active and can go for an hour on a walk without a break. But the vet said to change it now to 1/4 of a cup of low calorie food per day TOTAL. In my opinion way too little.
So I am wondering if her pig ear treats are hindering her weight loss. She now only gets cooked sweet potatos and non fat cottage cheese for breakfast and 1/4 cup fo food for dinner. Not much to go on, so the pigs ears became a guilt treat. She looks so pathetic when I eat anything, it seems like a simple thing to give her something she will spend an hour chewing on.
What do you think, many of you have had many dogs and would know better than I.
