I have a blue Staffy. I have given him beef jerky and although they say it is okay for dogs he has coughed and choked. I hit him between the shoulder blades and now he is drinking milk and seems all right. Can I let him have these treats?


Pigs ears, rawhide, and anything else can potentially be a choking hazard, even when they are labelled okay for dogs. All are potentially dangerous.
