Cruelty-Free Pig Ears

Written by PETA | June 8, 2011

Pig ears. They’re pretty gross when you think about it, and they just got a little grosser after a nationwide recall of pig-ear dog treats because of salmonella contamination. It’s safe to say that my dog, Hannah, will be staying a safe paw’s length away from them. But she and other dogs aren’t going to have to go treatless, thanks to the Veggie Pig Ears available through the PETA Catalog. The veggie ears are completely meat-, gluten-, and salmonella-free, but full of tail-wagging good flavor.
 

Ellie’s all ears—veggie pig ears, that is.

 
Salmonella fears aside, considering how similar dogs and pigs are in terms of intelligence and personality, feeding a pig’s ear to a dog is, well, kind of eerie.

    There’s also a product called “Better Than Ears” – though I don’t know the amount of animal “parts” are actually in them, if any. Might be worth checking out though.

    Two things: 1. You can’t call something that is not made from the animal “vegan (whatever the animal body part is).” It’s a vegan chew toy or Pig’s ears. 2. Dogs/cats need some meat in their diet or they will die. They are carnivores with some need for plants to aid in digestion.

    Eww, that’s really gross. I would hope no one would feed their dog pig ears. But the veggie ears are a great idea. (:

    Great gift idea! Love to Ingrid and friends at PETA!
