Both of my dogs were immediately interested in these which was a good sign but towards the end both ended up choking on them and not sure why. I purchase many rolls similar to these and never had an issue but this time it was every time towards the end they would choke on them. Both of my dogs are of different breeds so we can rule that out. Also both are medium to large dogs that should be able to handle them. Again they could be good for other dogs however I am only speaking from my experience with them.
I’m not sure if this is just how this product normally smells, but they have a very strong scent of rancid oils. My teenage puppy was very “meh” on actually chewing these, and wasn’t particularly interested. I’d be willing to try them one more time to see if this was just an off-batch, but I wouldn’t continue purchasing if this smell (and my dog’s reaction to them) is the norm for Pork Chomps.
We call these puppy taqutios & our pups love them. These are the longest lasting chewy for my POWERCHEWER Chester, and that’s saying a lot. My pitties and my old lady shepherd love them, so I try to keep them on my autoship order now that I’ve tried out basically most the “long lasting” chewies. These last long enough that Luci will save hers for later, and get 2-3 chew sessions out of one taquito, although Chester will demolish them in 2-3 minutes. That’s fantastic for him!
Its difficult to find just the right healthy chew for my pups. Most are either unhealthy, too soft & eaten within minutes or too hard they knock out teeth such as the Himalayan yack cheese chews.
I got the 15 pack at the end of July. By October 1st they were rancid and my dog refused them. He really like them when we got them. Disappointed that they didn't last longer. I guess if I got the 4-pack that would work better but not as economical.
Our older Staffordshire Terrier didn't tolerate them well. He clearly liked the taste but it didn't like him -- gave him the squirts. Which was fun. We tossed the bag after trying two "chomps."
My dog choked on them as they got softer, much like the rawhide bones. She loves them, but I cannot feed these to her anymore. I had to reach into her mouth and pull it out before she choked.
I bought these for my puppy after looking for treats to keep her busy that are rawhide free. They smelled horrible but she actually really enjoyed them so I figured I’d suck it up since I wasn’t the one chewing on them lol. They ended up making her so sick. She threw up for a couple days each time after eating her dog food.. I had thought maybe she was eating too fast all of a sudden for some reason. The last day I had given her one she threw up 5 times in the span of the day. Poor girl couldn’t keep anything down except for white rice and boiled chicken and even then she seemed like she really didn’t want to eat that. Sure enough as soon as I tossed the bag and removed these chews from the equation since this was the only new thing she’s been introduced to, she was back to normal and hasn’t thrown up after eating her kibble since. Usually I wouldn’t recommend not trying something just because it didn’t work for my girl, but I have never seen her so sick before. Truly worrisome
I have 2 dogs, one of which has never turned down anything edible. She wouldn't even get past the initial grab from my hand, dropped it and wouldn't touch again. My other dog tried it for a bit, chewed the end and walked away! Will not order again!
CHOKING HAZARD I have two very zealous chewers. Both of them enjoy a chew after their dinner, either a cheese stick, greenie or what have you. I always look for rawhide alternatives that are easy on digestion and safe for my dogs. I wanted to try these because of that. A week ago, after my dog was chewing one of these chomps he stopped suddenly. He started gagging and coughing and my husband ended up pulling a huge, flat piece of these pork chomps that had unrolled at the end of him chewing. It was horrifying but we thought it was a fluke. Then last night the exact same thing happened to our golden. I fished the same kind of flat, unrolled piece of this chomp out of her throat. I wanted to say here to just be cautious when giving these to your pets. Watch them vigilantly, especially if you have fast chewers.
