Default Pig/cow feet and fat

So, I was trying to find nutritional information on pig and cow feet and not having much luck. The articles I found were for humans and said they should be eaten sparingly because they are high in saturated fat. But are they too high in fat for a dog? Can they be fed as a staple or just as a treat?

I would also like to learn more about the role of fats in a raw diet. It seems like a lot of the easily available meats near me are very high in saturated fat per lb because they come with the skin on, or they are just very fatty cuts of meat. I know for things like muscle meat you are supposed to trim the fat off, but what about skin? How much fat is too much?
