    Default Pork Chops

    Hi

    Just another question pls ladies re raw food .The girls happily devour lamb ,chicken and for the first time this week Tripe even though to me it looks and feels horrible but would you say its OK to feed pork providing I watch for any big bones .

    How can such pretty dogs as our Cavaliers eat such a revolting item as raw tripe its beyond me .

    I'm not sure what it is but there is something other than tapeworm that makes pork need cooking.

    Come for dinner Brian, my cupboards are bare!

    Hi

    Oh I am getting totally confused ,I read this and it says pork is fine.

    http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=myths

    So it seems the more one reads the more confused one becomes over feeding pork ,I do give them each a half teaspoon of cottage cheese and this article says thats OK but from all our learned ones can I pls have definitive guidance do I or don't I feed Pork.

    As you say, there seems to be a lot of split opinion on this, depending what you read. I have fed ours pork once or twice, but they don't have it regularly... I would be inclined to avoid if you're not sure, it sounds like your girls get a wide variety of foods anyway

    This site says that pork doesn't cause pancreatitis, but makes no mention of parasites or pathogens that may be in the meat. I would not feed raw pork, cooked it's completely safe for you or your dogs.
