I wouldn't feed it raw (trichinosis), but cooked I don't see why it would be a problem.

Pork can be really fatty and there can be cause for concern about pancreatitis. Lean pork shouldn't be a problem, though.

Pork is bad for dogs not sure why.
It can and does make a dog very sick.

My friend feeds her dog lean, cooked pork and a variety of veggies & rice. He's 11 and looks great.
Any fatty food can cause pancreatitis (I'm sure you know that Abby, directing it generally here). But people have a tendency to want to feed ham, bacon, and bacon drippings, etc which are pretty fatty & probably why pork specifically has a bad rap. Butter, things like that can cause big problems too.

A nice meat-cutter gives me deep discounts on overstocks for the shelter dogs. I cook about 5lbs of meat and shred it into their kibble/canned breakfast. Today, it's pork tenderloin, and I've been having vague feelings that pork isn't good.
This is so fat-free, though, that I thought I might add a little oil. I've cooked them 7%-fat ground beef, and they don't like it. No flavor, I guess.  ...

Sheesh! Can I have some? I LOVE pork tenderloin.

I have 3 dogs & usually they eat dry dog food but once in a while I'll give them a piece of the pork I'm eating. Now 2 of them an handle it but the other one 5 minutes after he eats it he throws it up & that's a small portion
