One of my dogs ate a pound of raw beef last year. He was totally fine, no stomach or poop trouble at all. He actually just spent the afternoon sprawled out on the couch with the most self satisfied look on his face I've ever seen.

Dogs have stronger stomach acids which can kill most bacteria in raw meat so I wouldn't worry about pathogens. You should have seen the things our dogs brought home when we were kids. :yucky:

On a side note...he's been napping on the couch all sprawled out on his back since about 10 minutes after he ate it. I think he's satisfied. lol

ummm lots of people feed their dogs RAW food all the time, thats what a raw diet is. I give my dogs raw turkey necks, raw beef heart, raw liver, raw beef, raw chicken necks and backs, raw ribs, raw everything.


Shouldnt even give him runs IMO. The only way it would is from the change in diet but there isnt a problem feeding your dog raw food.

The only reason i said it would give the runs, is cuz everytime i feed hamburger meat it gives me dog the runs, i think its cuz it has soo much fat in it. Plus his dog isnt used to it, so he probably will get the runs. :thumbsup:

He'll be fine. Unless he has a sensitivity to beef, he probably won't get the runs.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. We feed raw chicken, venison, turkey, whatever we have on hand. If it was fit for human consumption, your dog should haven no problem with it.

If he does get the runs, feed canned 100% pumpkin. That'll clear it up.
