Ques 1. Wont hurt him at all. Loose stool would be the main concern. Other then that, I bet he enjoyed his yummy meal

Ques 2. Same thing applies to smaller dogs. Start at 2% and adjust as needed.
Please please please give Maggie the steak! Its not too big for her little mouth!

Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.

as scott said... too much liver can cause "the splats" and a darker stool but other than that, yum!

good to hear about your little girl also going on raw... she likes it so far?
