    DefaultRaw Meaty Bones - Safe or not?

    I found an article on this site saying to feed the dogs with raw meat to have healthy teeth.

    And my question is: Feeding the dog raw meat will it bring back his hunting and killing instincts? Will the dog become dangerous and seek for raw meat to eat?




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    many folks feed raw, meaty marrow bones with no issues. me included. others are fearful of teeth fracturing.
    it has zero to do with bringing back their hunting and killing instincts.zero.

    I feed raw marrow bones to my girls, with meat on the bone also.
    They have yet to try to kill me or anyone else.....LOL

    I'm just kidding with you...the bones are fine.
    They don't bring out any primal or primitive instincts in the dog.
    In other words...they won't get a taste for blood after having a bone and go out looking to kill for it.

    What about the bacteria in raw meet? Isn't it better to cook it first? You know, just through it on the bbq grill and give it to the dog..

    NO!!!! Don't cook it-cooking it weakens the bone, making it more likely to splinter and injure the dog.
    Raw marrow bones are best.
    The dog's have stomach acids that can handle the bacteria in the raw meat. It doesn't bother them.
    I give my girls raw frozen marrow bones 2-3 times a month.

    Whatever you do-don't give your dog cooked bones of any kind.
    Very dangerous.

    If you are interested in feeding raw bones, do the research. There is plenty published. You are not ever going to fully educate yourself by asking random questions on a message board.

    I meant the meat, not the bone. To cook the meat instead of giving it just raw. What is best for dog!?

    I was talking about the raw meat, not the bone.
