  • Possibly some runny poo for awhile. Some people that feed a raw diet feed their dogs pork, so he should be fine especially since it was frozen prior to him eating it. If you are really concerned you could call your vet's office and ask them.

  • There are all kinds of parasites in raw pork. Even for people, they give you worms. So if you do and he starts wiping his butt on the floor you what it is.

  • i would get him to the vet ASAP...they can give him charcoal to make him vomit so it doesn't absorb...pork is filthy carries parasites, e-coli and that kinda crap...I would take him to be sure.
