My boys get them all the time, well, they used to.
Memphis loves them its the only thing he really likes to chew, hes not a bone or a rawhide chewer, never knew why. And zero takes his outside to eat...
I, myself, love them for my boys it keeps them busy and quiet for like 10 mins.  But, i DO make sure that the ones i got are NOT green. bc i heard that isnt healthy.
As for the runs and choking, its never happened... my b/f used to bring them from work all the time also, when he worked in the vet clinic

Thanks all for your input on pigs ears!  I gave one to Kate last night (outside), she worked on it for about an hour or so.  She was happy, she hasn't had any gas (yet  ;)), and her stool was fine this morning (I thought maybe it would give her a bit of the runs).

So, I'll give her one about once every few weeks (as long as she's fine with them).  They are definitely an 'outside treat' though...

Thanks again!

I've never given Tater a pigs ear, but recently I gave him a smoked lamb bone and he absolutely looooooooooove d it.  In fact he's gnawing on it right now and trying to get out the marrow. He didn't have any stomache issues so I think I'll get him one for xmas and maybe a beef heart as well. The pet store across the way from where I work sells them as well as pigs ears, pig snouts and beef tracheas (yuck  :P).
