Can my dog eat Pig Trotters?

It’s rare that dogs cannot consume pig trotters. However, it is a fattier, bone-in chew and can be easy to overfeed. Be sure to introduce in short sessions.

If your dog is a gulper, they must learn how to properly chew bone-in foods to avoid swallowing too quickly and regurgitating this food. Senior dogs with poor dental health may have trouble with these as well, but you can soften these chews by soaking in warm water before feeding.

Introduce slowly. Start with 5 minutes and work up to chew sessions no longer than 15 minutes to avoid digestive upset.
