cooked or raw meat/fish?

Hi all!,

My dog gets fed lathams dry food everyday and i try to give him some meat and left overs with his evening feed to make it more exciting! When i go to the supermarket i pick up any reduced meat or fish to give him that night, is it better to cook it for him as he isn't used to it? or is it more nutritious for him raw?

So far i have only given it to him cooked or at least partially cooked and its only steak that has given him an upset tum.

Should i stick with what i am doing or should i make a point of giving him raw meat with every meal so he gets used to it? thanks.

We give our dog raw for treats, but thing is we have our own beef and we know how it's ben handled..ect.. vs store bought meat that you have no idea about. I'm sure some members can give you better advice.

Also did you wash the steak before ou gave it to yuor dog, or did you leave all the spices..ect.. o there? Tht might be the problem that gave your pup tummy issues If you ever want o give your dog left over cooked meats in general, wash all the spices of there because some migt not be very healthy for your pup.

if you are feeding it with kibble its better if its cooked as they digest raw and cooked meat differently and it may cause digestive problems. If the beef causes problems don't feed it its probably the high fat content.

Source? The animal nutritionist I talked to recommends mixing kibble and raw for a couple of months before going raw full force.

Personally the only thing I'd cook are any fish that have thiaminase. Oh, and if you are feeding eggs, I'd at least soft-boil them to deactivate the abiotin.

I have been feeding raw for over a year now and I have never felt the need to boil the eggs, my dog gets a raw egg a week, shell included.

The food fed to the dog shouldn’t be too bitter or too cold. We feed our dog in a strictly prescribed time.

Spambot most likely.

Oh, and with regards to boiling eggs: if you don't care if you get a net gain of biotin from the eggs, raw is fine. I just like getting that extra boost.

My dogs eat raw.
Chicken is the easiest for most dogs to start with, then pork or beef and so on.
I wouldn't mix raw and kibble as it can cause tummy upset.
