well as usual after the christmas meal was ready and i started carveing up the ham , i treated my dogs to the fatty /gristle pieces and they seemed to love it, then in the middle of the night our old boston terrier woke me by his whimpering and panting. he acted as if he was very hot and i took him to the water bowl as he is about blind ,wetted my fingers and touched his mouth to let him know where his bowl was and he didnt drink . he still was panting . i woke wife up and she took him outside and he had to go REAL bad. but after returning inside he still acted sick . he proceeded to get lethargic acting and even stumbleing when he walked throughout the next day so she took him in to the vet and they gave him iv's and took blood sample to check him out. she told him of my feeding him and the other dog some ham and the vet said that ham is not good for dogs. said it can mess their pancreace up because they cant digest it properly. i feel bad that i did that to him thinking i was treating him so i guess i will have to toughen up and not give in to him when he is stareing up wanting food :roll_eyes: . the other dog the big bassett ate the whole ham bone loaded with gristle and fat in about 30 minutes . he didnt complain a bit:embarassed: , i hope that doesnt come back to haunt me. anyone else heard of pork being bad for pets??
