This is 100% true. Some of it has been frozen for quite a while too. Grocery store meat can also have been frozen, thawed, and frozen again. There's no danger to it, it just has the potential to make the meat less palatable.

Been doing this for over 15 years and never had a problem.

If you have the space, buying a quarter or half a beef will be economical and you know what you are getting. You can eat the tasty bits yourself and give what you are less comfortable cooking to the dogs.

jocoyn Thanks. I def want to do some research on it and consider. I like the available variety. One thing I have tried to avoid is hormones and antibiotics in the feed animals which is allowable at USDA facilities and for human meat. (Well poultry is not allowed to have hormones) followed by a strong preference for grass fed feed animals vs grain (corn) fed.

I use Blue Ridge Beef. I haven't had any issues with it so far. I have been using it for a good 6 months. I have a picky eater with food sensitivities so my choices are very limited.

Currently, I feed the beef with bone and natural mix in a 50/50 portion.
I add in a little extra m/m or organ every now and then. Throw in a can of sardines once or twice a week and the recreational bone and you are good to go. My girl seems to be doing well.

ETA: Unless you have more than one dog, I find the 2 lb. chubs easier to deal with. That's just my choice.

Wild Wolf I got sent some free samples of K9 Natural freeze fried raw - the venison and the lamb tripe - and my two raw fed dogs loved it. I talked a bit about the company with the person who sent me the samples, and really liked everything we discussed about quality, sustainability, etc etc... I'd recommend it!

Flutter There are small local companies in my area that make ground raw foods. There might be something like that close to you that no one but locals have heard of.
