I feed my dogs all kind of raw meat products I can get cheap. Now, it is mainly what became "ripe" in the grocery and should be thrown out; actually it is still quite good, but smells a little. I have a friendly grocery owner, which sets things aside for my dogs. This includes ground beef, USDA choice chunks of beef and chicken parts. I take it home and store in freezer. In the fall, when hunting starts, I have plenty of venison scraps and whole deer, occasionally. A few years ago, I picked up fresh road kills of animals palatable to dogs, deer, beaver, rabbit or groundhog. If it was fresh, it made a good food for the dogs. Of course, you have to soil your hands to use things like this. How healthy and safe was it? I think it was great. My oldest pair of West Siberian Laika died, when they were 17 year old and they died of age. The male caught and killed his last raccoon, when he was 13 years old. Not bad of an old dog. They never needed a vet. So healthy they were through their entire life. Small injuries healed naturally. Of course, I vaccinate my dogs myself. They were bit by copperhead snakes, some were bit multiple times through their lives, and one time they caught sarcoptic mange from a fox they hunted. I fixed it up by giving my dogs IVOMEC with food; they healed in a weak. My other old dogs died at the age of 11-14 years; they were other Laikas and Airedale Terriers. Now, I have one Laika female (8 years old) and two Saluki males and one female. They are thriving on the same diet - all kinds of raw meats and sometimes sea fish (from the grocery). I always have some quality kibbled dog food, which I use, when I run out of meats.
