One of our kind followers on Instagram (very new to us) kindly let us know about a popular brand of Pigs Ears (IMPORTED) that is making dogs sick in Melbourne. So thank you and to everyone else STEER CLEAR.
Many brands of commercial pet food are imported or have some ingredients that are imported. Imported pet food is often irradiated. This can cause a range of serious health problems. Some of the worst and most dangerous products are the most expensive. The worst are sometimes the ones recommended by "experts." These foods cause both health and behavioural problems. We know. It created business for us to fix. As a dog behaviouralist I have worked with dogs for 20 years. Most dogs I meet are NOT eating healthily to live long lives - despite the best intentions of owners who are following "advice." Advice that sadly is more about sales and profits than health. This costs you the owner a fortune, and is devastating. Ask us for further information if you have questions about your dog's diet or behavorial issues or want to know if what they are eating is ok.
Please note that Australian Pigs Ears are often in short supply due to products being sold to high-bidding overseas interests. We have a constant supply and have managed to keep our prices well below others. If you see ears, or any other products, priced below ours there is a GOOD chance they are imported. Don't touch them. We also are in the unique position to be able to offer a couple of different sizes so you can save by getting what's right for your dog.
Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) is a technology that extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects. There is some argument that irradiation can cause cancer.
