I think there's an old saying that if you give a dog raw meat then it will go "wild" and angry. I don't know if it's true. Could people give some feedback on this?

Yes you can feed them raw meat with no ill affects. After a couple of days of a queezy stomach, you will have a brand new dog. Depending on the breed the dog will have less gas, leave alot less poop in the yard, and smell oh so much better. You will notice a change on the nice side of the dogs apperance, coat shinning, and much better breath. I did this for my shepeard I had and he absolutly turned into an entirely different dog. He wasnt sleeping all the time and after feeding him good food, it turned him from my pet to one of the family. He was always with one of us, anywhere we went

Hope this helps

Yes, dogs can eat raw meat. However, the meat in stores is full of bacteria and viruses from sitting out for days. Cooking the meat kills the bad stuff, but if you feed it to your dog raw...you may have problems. You should probably only feed you dog fresh raw meat (like, the animal was killed the same day).

Yes. Dogs are related to wolves, who are strict carnivores.

They might not be used to it (intestinal discomfort, gas, not sure it's food), they will probably need more of it than cooked foods, and they probably will drag it all over the place and make a mess. Other than that, feral dogs do just fine.

Yes, but I would only really if it was fresh, Mix it with some cooked white rice too.

Look at their teeth. Did they evolve to chew tough vegetables, squish cooked mush or cut up raw meat?
