Daddy bought me dried ostrich liver (made in Canada by Barking Mad) and Mommy says they look weird.

Has anyone else tried this stuff? Any problems that anyone knows of?

I love them but Mommy can't get past the "texture" of themshrug

I used dried ostrich liver a long time ago as an agility training treat, the dogs loved it. I've never had any problems with it. Let us know how you like it!

Is your breed- next? Ban BSL.

Eww! Ostrich liver? I'm not saying it's bad, but it's against my morals to give my dog ostrich... Ostriches are cool...

But, they are the latest "in" meat in fine restaurants....so why not give the liver to use well-deserving pups!way to go

Mmmmm..... Ostrich is the best! Pigs and cows are "cool" too, but we still eat them ....

We've had the "Barking Mad" liver treats a bunch. The chips are relatively thick and really hard and crunchy, right? If so, that's how they're supposed to be. YUMMMM... I guess if they've gotten exposed to humidity and/or heat they might get kinda weird, in which case I'd steer clear. If they smell "off" definitely don't feed them. If you bought them like that, simply return them.
