Dogs and cats love pig ears. They are delicious and a great snack, providing essential amino acids and fats for energy. Naturally high in chondroitin, they also help keep cartilage between joints healthy making them an especially excellent choice for older cats and dogs who need joint support. They're also a smart preventative measure for middle-aged cats and dogs.
Pig ears are mainly cartilage making them an excellent natural source of chondroitin. Chondroitin is one of the main building blocks of cartilage in joints. It helps draw water and nutrients into the cartilage, keeping it springy and healthy. This ensures adequate shock absorption and nourishment of the tissues that line the joint making chondroitin critical for joint health.
Raw pig ears also provide mental enrichment for pets. Raw cartilage is chewy and requires dogs and cats to gnaw on them for a bit before consuming them. This prolonged chewing promotes an endorphin release and also helps maintain dental health.
