|WirelessG||I've fed mine some smelly meat in the past with no problems (1 or two days past the exp), but I try to avoid it. The funny thing is that if you left your dog to fend for himself, he would find all sorts of rotten stuff to eat and he would survive. So it always makes me wonder, but I feed them fresh almost all the time.|

|Blanketback||I feed my dog beautiful fresh beef knuckle bones, that I make a special trip to the meat packers to get, just for him. He won't eat them fresh! He buries them and lets them rot! Then he'll dig them back up to enjoy them, afterwards. Yuck!!! I asked my vet if this was ok, can my dog eat bones covered in maggots??? My vet said it was pretty typical and wouldn't hurt him, lol. And thankfully the maggot-covered bone was just in my imagination, lol. They're not even smelly, for some reason, after he digs them up - a delicious canine beef jerky specialty, handed down for generations, lol.|

I don't feed spoiled meat. I know people that do and have never had a problem. There are people on here that do. I've had dogs drag in road kill and never had an issue.
But I'm not taking the chance.

But I'm sure it would've been fine. I think I exaggerated how spoiled it was

Oh it was in the fridge,I just kept it there longer than I wanted. And it wasn't spoiled all the way, just starting to stink and slimy. But I threw it away just in case
I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem, I've given him a piece like that before but this time it was a lot of meat and I didn't want to risk it.

It's not just about killing the bacteria, but the smell comes from toxins produced by the bacteria. Boiling won't get rid of those.
I know people that feed rotten meat and road kill with no problems (yet), but it's not something I would risk.

|blackshep||I might feed my dog something out of the fridge that is a day or so older than what I'd eat myself, but that's it. Fresh meat only, I would never feed spoiled meat to my dog.|
