Is it safe to let your dog chew up and eat Pork Rib bones? They have lots of meat on them whereas the beef soup bones I can get have nothing on them so they just get the marrow out of them. When Safeway has a sale on Pork Ribs, I can get the trimmings really reasonably, some of it is straight meat, other parts have a little of the Rib still on it.
I have Susie who is my Bernese cross so is a big dog, then I have a Shih Tzu/Maltese cross. I am trying to get Susie to lose some weight so if I give her Pork, how much would be enough? She weighs 70 lbs and would like to get her down to 60 lbs. I have reduced her kibble to two cups a day, one am and one pm, but she still does not seem to be losing weight. Would it be easier to get weight off her with a straight meat diet?
