Pork with baked apples for dogs
Pork with baked apples for dogs is one of my favorite foods! We always use a lean pork cut into bite size pieces. We serve with a healthy mix of mushy peas and carrots
Now your probably wondering if dogs can eat pork? Well the answer is yes…
Pork in itself is as harmless to dogs as chicken, beef or any other meat. However, there is a slight risk of being infected with trichinosis by eating pork that is not cooked properly.
Trichinosis, also known as trichinellosis, is a worldwide, food borne disease caused by an intestinal roundworm, uncommon in the United States. Both humans and pets who eat raw or undercooked meat of infected animals can develop the disease. Undercooked or raw meat of infected animals contains the roundworm. The disease can lead to muscle soreness and pain together with swelling of the upper eyelids in mild cases but can lead to more severe symptoms.
If you are going to feed us lucky dogs pork, please make sure that you cook the pork properly, just like you would do for yourself. Also skip the bones, cooked bones are never good for us dogs. If you are going to use table scraps, please make sure it is not all spiced up, it could upset our stomachs.
