    Are raw pork ribs ok to feed? We have some that we forgot to cook for ourselves and were wondering if we could feed them to Caney. Otherwise they'll be thrown out.

    Iv no experience with raw but my take on it is that rib bones are very thin and easy broken hence sharp edges which could cut gums or do harm if swallowed , hopefully someone experienced can advise but if it were me I'd bin them ..
    What a shame you forgot about them they are VERY tasty yum yum !!

    Pork ribs should be fine. They are soft and shouldn't splinter as long as they are not cooked. Caney will love them. :)

    Sometimes pork can be a bit rich for some dogs. So I would try just a little.

    Trichinosis is not a risk in commercially raised pork.

    I've fed pork ribs. If they are big I hack then with a meat cleaver. There is usually a fair amount fat that I trim.
