Can I feed raw venision?

I am doing a lot of deer hunting this year, can I feed him raw venison, and rib bones?

Okay, so no problem with worms or parasites?

The only thing you have to worry about with deer is CWD - Chronic Wasting Disease. Check and see if it's in the area where you take the deer.

If it is I wouldn't feed the brain or spine. Everything else would be ok.

Sure. I'm going to feed venison to my dogs for Christmas.

Re: Can I feed raw venision?

A guy I was hunting with said raw venision can kill a puppy because their immune system can't handle it yet, and all the vets in town warn me not to do it as well. So, to be clear...raw venision is fine for a 3 month old pup?

Re: Can I feed raw venision?

My son just got a deer and I told him to keep the heart to give to my dogs. Usually they end up in the field where it is gutted. His uncle said to wait a few days before feeding this(or eating) not sure why, but this guy has been hunting for 40 yrs, so I took his advice. My dogs loved it, and it was very easy to cut.There is no reason NOT to feed raw venison, just make sure it was processed properly, and be aware of what Laurie stated above. The rib bones are to be chewed under supervision only, IMO.

Re: Can I feed raw venision?

You guys were right about only giving him the ribs under supervision. I gave him one yesterday, he eats them so fast the entire thing is usually gone in minutes...well he forgot to chew and tried to swallow the bone whole. He started gagging with a bone hanging out of his mouth and kept walking a way form me because he thought I wanted to take his bone a way! Finally I grabbed him and pulled it out...it was in there deep! As soon as I got it out he took it back and happily chewed a way again... silly dog.
