Fine-as long as the pig & the dog aren’t related.

 

Question:

I was wondering if pig ears are bad for dogs.

 

Dr. Nichol:

I’ve always thought that this should be a matter of personal preference. If a dog has no ears at all, then pig ears are better than none. On the other hand a guy or gal with a decent set of God given ears should just be happy and accept themselves as they are.

 

Now eating pig ears is a different story. It seems to be quite a delicacy and does no harm. I have never developed a taste for them. But like all things, especially around the holidays, moderation is best.
