Update 2021: Unfortunately, Raw Feeding Miami no longer carries pork uterus. However, they have alternatives like pork cushion meat, pork heart, and pork jowls.
Tip: You can find pork uterus at ethnic markets like Asian grocery stores here in the US.
Pork raised in the US is safe to feed our dogs nowadays as biosecurity measures on pig farms have improved a lot.
Raw Pork Uterus – Neutral Protein To Be Fed As Muscle Meat in Raw Dog Food
Pork is rich in thiamin, riboflavin, zinc, magnesium, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, niacin, phosphorus, and iron.
Pork uterus is fed as muscle meat, which makes up 70-80% of a meal.
How much exactly depends on the type of raw dog food you feed.
If you feed a BARF diet that includes plant matter like veggies and fruit, the muscle meat allowance is 70% (for adult dogs).
If you feed PMR (Prey Model Raw) without plant matter, the muscle meat allowance is 80%. Besides muscle meat, raw meals also consist of secreting organs and raw meaty bones.
I also added some pumpkin purée.
The meal pictured below does not feature secreting organs or raw meaty bones. I fed those at a different time of the day.
Raw Dog Food Recipe Idea Featuring Raw Pork Uterus
Now, as you can see in the video below, Missy loved the pork uterus. Buzz however didn’t like it at all. This was definitely a first!!
He did try it several times but kept spitting it out. This was the case when I offered it to him thawed AND partially frozen.
I figured he might not like the flabby, somewhat slimy, consistency of the thawed uterus. But he also more or less politely declined it when it was partially frozen.
So far, both pups have liked every single raw item I’ve bought for them, meaning Buzz not liking the pork uterus was definitely a first.
Raw Pork Uterus For Dogs: Bottom Line
Pork uterus is fed as a muscle meat in raw feeding.
It’s a bit hard to find, but a great cut of meat to add to raw dog food in the sense that it brings variety to the bowl.
Our introduction to this particular cut of meat wasn’t 100% successful since Buzz decided to be a spoiled little puppy brat and spat it out.
But Missy LOVED it!
