    Default feeding pork

    We feed Ty pork. It's a little fattier compared to other meats so maybe not for everyday. But every once in a while - I see no problem with it

    Thanks It's one of those things that stuck in my head and wanted to clear it up.. Thinking of getting a shoulder or something and shredding up for occasional feedings..

    Working in the food industry, I personally wouldn't feed any dog pork. But that's me. Trichinosis, is mainly spread when undercooked meat which contains.. Hope I spell this right... Trichinella cycst is eaten. This is usually pork but you can find it in bear and dog meat. Larvae are like born in the stomach then goes in the small intestine's walls. So basically they turn into adult worms. Bears n pigs are not the same animal as we know but are both very similar as scavenger or eating same thing. Very rare i eat pork. Mind you don't eat much meat either. Lol. But to be honest with you, I wouldn't give my pets pork. But that's me.

    Trichinella is an unpleasant infection for humans, but not really dangerous for dogs. There is another larva, which can be eaten with undercooked pork - pork tapeworm. Causes Cysticercosis. Larva then hatches inside and goes into bloodstream, looking for place to nest. In case it places in brain or eye, serious trouble happen. Seizures, blindness, etc. Needs surgery and can cause death. Extremely dangerous for both humans and dogs. That's why NO undercooked or raw pork for people or dogs. Well cooked pork you can eat yourself or give to your dog, if your dog is ok with fatness of pork meat. That's why pork is widely used in different dry dog foods. It is safe when well cooked, good alternative source of protein. And cheaper than beef.

    Uh oh, I should be dead! One of my favourite things to eat is a tiny amount of raw sausage meat before I cook it!! I also eat a very small amout of raw hamburger meat too. Salt, pepper and maybe some garlic salt, lovely! I am definitely a carnivore as much as I really hate the thought of animals dying.

    Trichinella is extremely rare and possibly non existent in pork in North America. But it's a good idea to freeze all meat whether it be chicken, duck, beef, pork etc in the freezer for 2 weeks to kill parasites before serving raw. If you are going to cook it you don't need to freeze it. Freezing doesn't kill bacterial contamination so it's still not a good idea for humans to eat raw meat even if it's been frozen.

    Beef is considered to be relatively safe to eat raw, because that scary worm lives only in pork. Worms that potentially (very rare!) can be in beef are the ones that can live only in the intestines of people, unpleasant, but mostly easily treated if it happens ( not really likely in the USA or Canada). So, eating raw carpaccio or a bit of purely beef hamburger is rather safe. But! Still, there are prions- scary mini viruses, that can cause deadly brain damage, Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) virus, or mad cow disease. This BSE virus is believed to be a cause of lethal disease - Creutzfeld Jacob encephalopathy in humans, who were unlucky to eat BSE contaminated meat, especially raw. But BSE is strictly controlled by CDC and not very likely to be present in beef in the US.
    So, the bottom line - if you don't eat raw beef, don't start. But if you can't resist - it is rather safe, at least in the USA. I cannot resist personally and my steak must be ALIVE

    Prions cause mad cow in cows , scrapie in sheep and goats and Creutzfeld-Jakob disease in humans etc You can't kill them since they are folded proteins , by cooking them or freezing them. Unless you have the means to subject your meat to ozone disinfection, incineration, or a combination of heat and sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide you can't inactivate them. If you avoid nervous tissue (brain and spinal cord) from beef you should be safe, but there's no need to eat cooked meat for that reason. Eating sheep infected by scrapies has not been known to infect humans,I guess it's species specific, although I guess it's possible the sheep could have picked up a mad cow variant by being fed meal from a rendering house that had infected cows thrown in the chemical bath.

    Our raw fed eats pork and lamb, sometimes duck and rabbit, and is supplemented as necessary. Perhaps we put too much trust in our provider, but I won't stop feeding one of the few proteins Lola can tolerate allergy-wise.
