Default Raw Pork?

Is it okay to feed my dogs raw pork?? My friend keeps trying to tell me that dogs are not suppose to have to, that it is bad for them. I have been feeding raw for a little while now, and my babies have recently started having diarrhea. When the diarrhea started they were eating steak chunck and little pork chops I got at the ethnic market. Now im feeding boiled chicken till we can get rid of the diarrhea. But I was wondering if it is okay to feed dogs pork?

Yes. It is a normal, common meat that raw feeders use. No different than beef, venison, etc. There USED to be a concern 30+ years ago, but the myths against pork persist. It is a safe good meat. Just be sure that any meats you buy are not enhanced with a salt solution. (Many are!) Read the labels and make sure the sodium is less than 100mg per 4 ounce serving.

Pork is perfectly safe. As for the diarrhea (true diarrhea is liquid & uncontrollable). We too recently had some really really loose stools and it was simply too much variety too soon and definitely not enough bone to help with the transition. I had in my head since I wasn't going from Kibble to raw, but from cooked to raw I could go at a faster pace...not! I don't know how long you have fed raw but those little things can make a big difference.

Im gonna stick with the cooked chicken till the diarrhea is gone, then go back to introducing one meat at a time.

For beef, can they eat thing like steaks?

I would never ever feed a dog raw pork (or wild boar) due to the Aujeszky's disease. This is a virus that can be found in swine and will lead to death. Thus, pork should always be fed cooked only. I am not sure if this is common in the US but I don't know any dog owner that would feed raw pork in Europe.

Yes they can eat all cuts of beef. Mine love heart.

what I am doing with mine is similiar, we are doing all raw chicken (one the loose stools were cleared) and so far so good, next week I will reintroduce one protein into the mix, maybe as the morning meal, then chicken for dinner. If that goes well then the following week yet another and so on.

We do not have an issue in the US with Pork. and if there are concerns, then once it is frozen solid for 2-3 weeks will kill anything that may or may not be there.

Nope, the US pork supply is safe and has been for over 30 years. I personally wouldn't feed wild boar, but regular grocery store pork is just fine.

UK pork is perfectly safe too, I feed it and so do many other British raw feeders without any issues. I wouldn't feed wild boar though for the reason Rocky (Sabine) has outlined above.
ETA When introducing new proteins, it is better to do it really gradually if your dogs have sensitive stomachs. So a bite or two of the new meat alongside something they are used to, gradually increasing the amount until it is a whole meal. Slower is definitely better for some dogs. Harley had to have everything very gradually as he was prone to loose stools, but the two new girls are doing really well and are already eating chicken, lamb, beef tripe and oily fish in less than 4 weeks of changeover. I feed a small amount of bone-in chicken with each new protein source, seems to have done the trick.
