Does anyone have any definitive answers on giving your dog cooked pork scraps? what about the big shank bone (cooked)? is this bad? I've done searces and see conflicting info. I'm leaning towards giving Uschi a little of the meat scraps, cooked, with the fat trimmed. Because I have two dogs, I can't equitably split the fine bone left behind, which seems a shame. But I'd rather avoid a fight!

Definitive? Not really ... we've heard pork is bad for dogs, but then I've had a smoked ham bone treat they sell in pet stores too. Moderation may be the key. Wish we had a better answer for you.

Cooked pork is definitely fine for dog provided that it does not contain too high of sodium.  Non flavoured is the best, try pick the ones have the least contact wtih sauce and salt.  Stay away from processed meat.

In fact, in Chinese dietary therapy, pork is consiered "neutral", and is the safest bet if you do not know exactly the patient's consituent. 

In the B.A.R.F. world, some people do feed raw pork.  The saying was to keep the pork in freezer with temp -20c(-4f) or below for 3 weeks, that would be good enough to kill any trichinosis.  (I did once follow the freezing part, but I ended up cooking the piece of pork!)

Never give a dog a cooked bone. Cooking makes them brittle & they can splinter and cause problems.

Offering raw beef bones is a good treat. Shank bones are pretty yummy according to my greyhounds!

Janie' right, no cooked bones, ever.

One thing my Mom remembered during a BARF class she took, was that the instructor said that at first, when the BARF diet started coming into popularity, people said no way to feeding pork because it was known for carrying a nasty parasite, the trichinosis that Genie mentioned. But in recent years they've supposedly eradiacated it, so it isn't a risk, but people are still cautious about it. My Mom was tempted to try it with me, but never did.
