    I was reading an article about dogs and how they are built like carnivores from their small GI track to their lack of enzymes in their saliva to break down cellulose. Then I remember a scene in the movie Shirley Valentine where she feeds her neighbor's vegan dog the steaks she had bought for dinner that night. I was wondering if anyone here buys their dog, or cat, raw meat instead of kibble?

    My other previous dogs also used to eat raw meat but my dog right now does not eat one. I remember one time when my husband tried to feed it raw chicken leftover meat together with its regular food. Our dog which is used to eating cooked food never touched the raw meat.

    Dogs were basically carnivores before the advent of their domestication. The latter fact did not make them lose their instincts and feeding orientation. Dogs generally cherish raw meat which they can consume in unlimited quantities in the best of times. But the fear is that they might develop a taste for other domestic animals like chicken especially when they develop a slight graze.

    Some 5 years ago, there was the hype here for feeding raw meat to dogs. I have 2 dog lover friends who are members of the shih tzu club which discussed raw meat in one seminar. My 2 friends have been feeding their dogs raw chicken meat. But after some time, they stopped giving raw meat because they noticed the bad odor of their dog's mouth. One dog breeder said that the blood in the raw meat causes the bad odor.

    We never give our dogs raw meat, we prefer cooked food for them.
