Hey Mighty Paw fam, Barbara here to tell you all about our new all-natural Pig Ears for dogs!
They're part of our Mighty Paw Naturals line and are a single-ingredient dog chew that's sourced in Columbia and hand-inspected in our HQ in Upstate NY.
Not only do they offer boredom and anxiety relief for dogs of all life stages, they also promote oral and joint health! Each pack consists of 12 half pig ears that are 6" long on average.
Why half pig ears?
Well, we decided to carry them in half sizes to ensure that they're a good fit for all size pups. That means that two halves make one whole ear if that makes sense!

Features & Benefits of Mighty Paw's Half Pig Ears
Here's what makes our pig ears such a great snack for your pup(s):
100% all-natural dog chews
It doesn't get any more natural than our pig ears because they literally only consist of dried pig ears.
These ears are discarded when the food industry processes pigs for their meat. Turning them into a delicious dog chew rather than throwing them out is a wonderful way of minimizing waste!
Single-ingredient chews that promote oral, skin & joint health
Our half ear pork chews soften with exposure to your dog’s saliva.
Nevertheless, they encourage chewing which reduces tartar and plaque buildup on your dog’s teeth and gums, strengthen and exercise their jaws, lessen gum pain in teething puppies and also loosen baby teeth.
Additionally, our pig ears are naturally rich in protein, glucosamine and chondroitin, which makes them a great addition to your pup’s diet for their skin and joint health.
That’s because glucosamine and chondroitin are natural anti-inflammatories that improve mobility, range of motion and slow the progression of arthritis by stimulating the growth of cartilage and helping the body repair damaged cartilage.
Although your dog’s body produces its own glucosamine, this ability lessens with age and causes stiff joints because there’s less cartilage to absorb shocks.
For dogs of all life stages
I already mentioned that we decided to carry our pig ears in half sizes because it makes them a great chew for small and large pups alike!
They're also not as hard as certain other dog chews because pig ears consist of nothing other than cartilage and skin.
Offers boredom & anxiety relief
As you probably know, chewing is a natural dog behavior and offers boredom as well as anxiety relief.
Since our pig ears come in a 12 pack and measure 6” in length on average, you won't run out as quickly.
Set up a pig ear subscription and we'll take care of your restocking needs for you! You also get to save 10% :)
Our pig ears don’t contain any added flavors or artificial preservatives! That makes them fully digestible, grain-free, gluten-free, chemical-free, and - most importantly - guilt-free!
It also makes them a healthy, boredom busting alternative to bleached rawhide chews!
Additionally, they're also great for dogs with food sensitivities to chicken, beef, lamb, fish and grains.
How long do the Pig Ears last?
There's no right answer for this question because it depends on your pup's individual chewing habits and their chewing style!
Some pups will eat a pig ear in 10-15 minutes while others need hours or even days to completely finish it.
That said, here's a little tip to make the pig ears last longer even for fast power chewers: Keep the pig ears in the freezer section of your fridge and offer them to your pup frozen.
Also, please remember to always supervise your pup's chewing sessions and to offer them plenty of fresh water along with their chews!
