Final Verdict. Pig ears in general are a lot better than rawhides. Rawhides do clean the teeth better, but the choking hazards of these outweigh those dental benefits. And pig ears are still a great treat to keep your pup's teeth and gums healthy!

No, rawhide does not dissolve in the dog's stomach. In fact, the opposite is true โ€” the rawhide swells up. Far from being broken down, rawhide forces your dog to pass the pieces they swallow, making for a risk of bowel blockage.
