My husband is worried because we are finding pieces of trachea in our dogs stool. They are small pieces. Should we be worried? She loves them!theBCnutMember
I wouldn’t worry about it unless you are seeing something else to make you think that they are hurting something. Are these dried tracheas?LexiDogMember
My dog loves treacheas too but unfortunately she would throw up the cartilage pieces. They looked like little pieces of shaved plastic about an inch and a half long. I don’t give hem to her anymore. These were the dried ones. Would it make a difference if they were raw?theBCnutMember
Cooking/dehydrating does change how they are digested, but it shouldn’t be a big difference.Kelsey HParticipant
I’ve given my dogs beef trachea time and again. It doesn’t always digest 100% but it hasn’t caused any problems. I think if the pieces were huge then id be a little concerned.
My dogs both love it when they get a beef trachea to chew on and it helps clean up their gums which makes me happy too.
