    A friend who is a member here feeds raw to her Danes. She said they go and hide it in the yard and eat it when they feel like getting to it.

    I am willing to bet the produce store meet is not as fresh as we would like to think.

    And yes... they love to find and eat the rotten, gag worthy, unidentifiables at my house too...

    For some reason I can't quote but Saddlebag, you have way to many assumptions. Most meat is handled better by the hunters than it is by the meat cutters. I have my critters gutted immediately! Not in 20 minutes or an hour. I gut them as soon as they are in the dirt. Almost every hunter I know is like that. I don't know anyone who would wait 4 hours before gutting, intentionally. Also, 4 hours isn't going to hurt a dog. Sheesh. My dogs eat stuff that's been dead for weeks or months, every chance they get. And since they are hunting dogs who get to roam in wilderness areas, that's alot. Just worm them regularly. Which should be done anyway.

    As far as your dogs digestive system, it's virtually identical to wolves. Dogs and wolves are more alike genetically than coyotes are to either of them. I feed raw game to my dogs all of the time. Meat scraps from when I butcher, ect.......

    *disappointed* .. I was looking for a picture of the moose heart! Lol

    DH's cousin lives in Montana. He spent the winter with us and brought down deer, antelope, and elk. It was delicious. However, even after being frozen, he gave some scraps of deer to our lab and less than a week later we were taking her to the vet. Massive stomach upset and diarrhea. The vet said that she had a gut overload of bacteria .. hmmmm.

    Having said that, I know tons of people that feed raw and love it! I'm lazy, I guess, it's just too easy to opent he bag and feed kibble. And we have 5 acres for them to poop on .. so no yard cleaning!

    Carry on...

    Sorry, I don't have any advice to give about the moose heart, I just have to say, I really think your border collie is so handsome, I love his markings, such a handsome boy!

    My first border collie passed away last year at 13 years old. I now have a new little border collie, I've had him since last June, he is just turned 1 year old at the end of March.
