Default Can puppies eat pork ribs?

I've got some pork ribs left over from dinner. Am I allowed to give them to my 4 and a half month old puppy. They are hard and thin so I am scared she might choke on them. What do you guys think?

No cooked bones.

Can you explain why? I have a 6 months old pup, and i feed him buff bones, soft ones, sometime raw and sometimes cooked. Fyi, not ribs though.

Raw bones get crushed up and have softer edges. Cooking the bones makes them more brittle and they can become jagged or pointy when broken. They create a puncture hazard for the dogs digestive tract.

" I dont recommend feeding any baked, broiled, or barbecued bones to pets because the heat dries up the bone and makes it more brittle and subject to splintering. Chicken bones and beef T bones are mostly the culprits. Keep pets away from these bones!"

YMMV. I wouldn't risk it. I actually had a dog puncture his stomach with a steak bone and die after surgery.

RIP Maxx

I would not feed a dog pork period. As a treat, but it's too high fat concentrated protein and the most mass-produced meat available, unless you have an ironside dog, look for a better protein source.
