I thought it would be fun for us raw feeders to share some pictures of our dogs eating raw and/or any interesting looking raw meals. I shared some on another thread, but I’ll share again to get this thread started off. I’ll likely have more to come in the near future.
Gertie eating a whole quail:
Gus eating a beef marrow bone:
Baby Mabel teething on a raw beef trachea:
Gertie eating a raw beef trachea:
This reminds me of that website with the hundreds of raw fed dog pictures!
That’s actually what gave me the idea to get some picture sharing going on here! 🙂
Hmmm…I’ll need to figure the picture thing out!
Sandy – I don’t know how to do it on shutterfly (I’ve never used it) but on photobucket you use the direct link code.DogFoodieMember
Oh my gosh! That picture of Gertie with the whole quail is gonna stay with me for a while! LOL!
I thought she looked like one of mine that got a frog. YUCK!! It had been dead a while.
That pic of Baby Mabel is adorable!
Thanks devilbrad! 🙂
By the way – what kind of hound do you have? Kind of looks like a red tick (?) but I can’t tell for sure from the picture..
I don’t know what she is, ha ha. Some people say bloodhound, but she is too small. Maybe an american fox hound? I may DNA test her some day. She’s roughly 4 years old and I just adopted her back in April. I don’t remember how to use image code, haven’t needed to do that since the old myspace days, LOL
Hmm…now that I see the body it looks like there could be some bloodhound in there (definitely not all bloodhound, too small and bloodhounds don’t have that tick pattern she has on her chest and leg). If I had to guess I’d almost want to say half bloodhound half red tick. Well, whatever she is she’s adorable!
Thanks! Once the intro section is up (patiently waiting!!) I’ll post pics of all the dogs in the house.shibasenjiParticipantshibasenjiParticipant
Hmm, so apparently img src links don’t work, and you can only edit a post a certain number of times.
I’ll just link the pics:
Holy moly Shibasenji! Watch yer fingers, eh? Those pictures are great! The picture of your Shiba Inu clearly shows the dental benefits of raw meaty bones! Those teeth are spotless!
thats the one, Shibasenji!
Great pictures, wish I could get them to work but I haven’t figured it out yet.
I had to open a photobucket account and load the pictures there! It was quick and easy though! Then I did what I usually do to post pictures in other places. Open the picture, right click, properties, copy the URL and paste in here!
Great pics Sandy! 🙂
Awe nice pictures everyone. I have some but I have no clue how to post them on here??
I did all of you a favor and didn’t get pictures of my dogs eating a chunk of goat head with eyeball. That was pretty gross, but they loved it.
I saw whole cow head at the Mexican supermarket!
I can load pictures in the forum through photobucket.
I thank you for that Patty! Lol! I have a video of Bailey eating a turkey neck, no pics though. I would have no clue how to post anything.
Oh it worked…..This is Tootie eating a Marrow bone.

With their tiny size, I can see why that would be WWWAAAYYYY too much fat for them.DieselJunkiMember
Oh man… I want to get a whole cow head and have Moose eat it on the walk outside. That’ll freak the neighbors in my apartment out! Hahahaha.
My calf is only 6 months old and his head is pretty big. I think that would be 3 days worth of food for a BIG dog.
Hey Sandy, was it skinned? They didn’t skin my goat head, just froze it and sawed it apart. The half closed eye was freaky.

Look at them eating!
The cow heads were wrapped in white plastic. Couldn’t see inside.
Dogforums(dot)com has a thread just for raw feeding pictures as well. Just search for “raw feeding picture thread” there. There’s a dog eating a goat head and a deer head on page 12.
Nice pics Sandy and NectarMom 🙂
I forgot about this thread – I’m going to have to try and get some more pictures of my three.
The chicken feet photos are priceless 🙂 Wish my crew could eat those.
Not sure if this will work or not. This isn’t a great picture, but I took a still frame from the video I have of Bailey eating a turkey neck. http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u182/Sidney0805/061113082412.jpg
Ok, now how do I get the picture to post in the comment?

Is that quail from Hare Today?
I just showed Steve. His response? “Ewww” lol
Haha yeah, it is kinda gross..
Some of Mabel eating a turkey wing:
What are they eating? I found a bunny burrow in my backyard this morning with dead babies 🙁 I didn’t even know they were there. The lawn mowers ran over them yesterday I guess and mom must have gotten scared off. They (rabbits) usually stay in the field behind the house.swampstomperParticipant
I’m curious about this. There’s no danger in letting them eat raw meat? Salmonella, e coli, that sort of thing?
They eat the bones and all?
Hi swampstomper –
This is a great question! I have fed my dogs a raw diet for about two years now and none have ever gotten sick and neither have I or anyone else around my dogs. Healthy dogs are fully equipped to handle the bacterial load present in fresh raw meat. For starters a dog’s saliva has antibacterial properties – there is a lysosome in their saliva that destroys bacteria (why they lick their wounds). Carnivores (like dogs) have extremely short digestive tracts in comparison to, say, a person’s digestive tract. Their digestive tracts are designed to get food in and out quickly before the bacteria have time to multiply to harmful levels. Lastly, dogs have very acidic stomach acid – much stronger than our stomach acid. In terms of nutrition requirements and their digestive system, dogs are not much different than their ancestors (wolves). Wolves not only eat fresh kill but also scavenge rotting carcasses (not that I’d recommend intentionally feeding a dog rotting meat! my dogs have, however, gotten a hold of many dead things over the years and never gotten sick). Dogs are meant to eat raw meat. The only instance in which I’d caution against a raw diet is for a dog with a compromised immune system. It’s also important to keep in mind that kibble-fed dogs are not immune to bacterial exposure – look at all the recent kibble recalls for salmonella! Salmonella is a normal constituent of the canine digestive tract and dogs fed raw and cooked diets have all been known to shed the bacteria in their feces.
I’d recommend checking out this article written by Dr. Karen Becker – holistic veterinarian and raw food advocate:
As far as consuming bones – there are two types of bones: raw meaty bones (termed “RMBs”) and recreational bones. Raw meaty bones (i.e. chicken backs, turkey necks, etc.) are soft and pliable and consumed in their entirety – they should make up a large portion of a balanced raw diet. Recreational bones (i.e. marrow bones, knuckle bones or the deer leg you see Gertie eating above) are more dense are not consumed entirely – they’re more for enrichment.
