This is a really great chew for our dogs and they thoroughly enjoy it. It is clean, not too much fat left and they actually smell pretty good unlike the other ears you can buy from other sites. The only grudge I have is that whenever I want to order it is usually not available. For some reason the Bavarian cows are a pretty difficult lot to catch. I dont quite understand it as the shelf life of the product is pretty long sp why do you always run out after 1 month?? Just buy more stock!!!
