I gave dodger some pork mince for his tea last night and he’s been sick about 4 times today – yellow bile with bits of his chicken wings from breakfast. I can’t remember giving him raw pork over the last year but i know when he was a pup he had loose poo’s and sickness when he had pork ribs, i thought i was down to me giving him to many and the high salt content making him sick but today just makes me think that he has an intolerance to pork? I’m sure i’ve given him cooked left over pork for treats before and he’s had no reaction to that ???February 5, 2009 at 8:46 pm #86035*Lassie*Member
Keep him off the pork till he is better, it may be he can tolerate small amounts like treats but not the quantity of a meal or he may have just picked up a bug, remember Willow and her bad tum ::)
You could try feeding him some pork on it’s own and see if it upsets his tum but wait until he is completely over the current upset.February 5, 2009 at 8:52 pm #86036AnonymousGuest
I would have expected him to eat lamb/mutton or beef being a pastoral / shepherd dog – any reason for giving him pork ? If not I just wouldnt bother again – who needs him being sick everywhere 😉

why would it have too high a salt content laura?February 6, 2009 at 9:13 pm #86038.dodger.Member
i’ve always thought pork was high in salt so by me feeding dodger 3 pork ribs everyday when he was a pup it was to much salt for him. Forgive me if i’m wrong :embarrass:February 6, 2009 at 9:56 pm #86039xtineMember
ham does, but don’t think ‘pork’ does… hams and bacons are smoked and salted….February 7, 2009 at 12:06 pm #86040SweetypyeMember
A pastoral dog can eat all sorts of meats including pork/venison/duck/pheasant/chicken etc etc!
Wild canids eat all sorts; GSD in their country of origin eat all sorts including you will find a great deal of wild boar!
Raw meat varies little in salt content; it is only when it is cured by using salt that the salt content of it changes eg bacon, ham, etc.
If pork does not agree with your dog; don’t feed it.
Vine leaves do not agree with me, so I don’t eat em! :ok:February 7, 2009 at 1:23 pm #86041Diesel73Member

Because is exactly what his ancestors been guarding on his farm also :tease: . In Benelux and Germany largest quantatity of meat being sold is pig 😉 . It as good as no more salt than other meats ànd not necesarely more fat either.
