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.

No kidding. Once you've paid a huge vet bill due to stomach issues, you won't take any chances at all.

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.

He likes the smell and when I boiled it the smell was gone. I still threw it away, though. I was already doubting and then saw carmen's post and got scared.

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

lalachka 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.

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.

even if it's boiled? it's not stinky yet, just has a smell if you smell it. like its not like you open a box and want to die
and isn't blue.

what happens with it that boiling can't kill?
