    Right seeing as it was Milo's birthday yesterday, he had some treats but tonight for his dinner I bought him as well as Zeus a rump steak from Tesco.

    Now I'm just unsure what to do, could I give it to them raw? They've never ever had raw before, so I'm a bit nervous about giving it to them.

    Should I cook it to kill any bacteria?

    Would it be too much for their first raw meat?

    I can't see why not. I always eat blue steaks (rarer than rare) and loads of other things raw with no ill consequences. Dogs digestion is far more acidic (ph 1) so it'll kill things that we can't.

    Raw should be ok, does he have a sensitive tummy normally? if he does then I wouldn't give him the whole lot in one hit.......
    It might give him the trots if he is not used to it

    I give my dog raw steaks as well as other things and he is not on a fully raw diet. He has never had any problems with raw meat as well as his normal foods.

    My dogs are on both raw and dry and they are fine and have never had the trots, but my friends dog can have anything other then his dry food as it goes straight through him.
