Joey ate a raw steak

I was bringing groceries in today - and I discovered a few moments after that Joey got into one of the bags and ate a raw steak. Top sirloin that is. I know a lot of people feed their dogs raw meat, he seems ok right now should I be worried.

the only thing you should be worried about is if Joey will ever want kibble again after tasting succulent raw steak

on a serious note, were there any bones and did he eat them? cut bones (from a butcher's saw) are sharp and not a natural shape, it could cause problems in a dog's tummy if not crushed into smaller pieces first. if no bones were eaten, relaaaax... joey had a good time and tomorrow his poop might be a bit darker and more runny than on kibble, eating meat does that unless balanced by bones.

Melei ate some sirlion today too. only difference is that she was given it on purpose I wouldn't worry, raw meat is good for them. Melei has been eating raw for awhile now and has no problems.

I am not sure about bones - I ended up taking the other part away from him and I threw it in the garbage. In the other steaks that I saved there is a bone but it is fairly large about 8 inches long - it would have taken Joey a long time to eat it if he did get it - as he doesnt have many teeth. I am just going to go check the garbage to see if the bone part is in there. So far he seems ok.

Just checked the garbage there was a bone in the meat I threw out. I am going to keep an eye on him and check his poop if he happens to want to go. Also try to put a call into the vet.

Well, I guess I'm too late, but as Technodoll said, as long as he's not digesting raw and kibble at the same time, he should be ok.

Let Joey sleep with me all night - nothing seems out of the ordinary hopefully we are in the clear now.

LOL sorry I know it's not funny, but my steaks are so rare the are practically raw!! I've been eating them that way since I was a child (I used to bite pieces off raw steaks when no one was looking ), and have not been sick yet!

I hope Joey enjoyed his meal

I'll second that, Joey is a lucky dog! Hopefully he will go back to kibble after eating raw...

Schultz has been eating raw stuff for four months now and I will never be able to get him to go back to kibble, nor would I want to!
