    All comes down to how much raw meat your dog is normally fed, is this near the same portion. Plus I take it the meat is from a fallow not a fellow.

    I wouldn't even cut the damage off...feeding venison to dogs is like feeding strawberries to pigs...no problem.

    If your dog doesn't normally get feed venison and you give it a big feed there is a good chance your dog may get the shits but as said just give it the same portion as would normally feed it

    If the dog hasn't been eating venison I wouldn't give it large amounts to start with.
    I had a pup which gorged on off cuts. Got the shits really bad and spent a night at the vet. Only because his system wasn't used to it. He doesn't have issues now. Except he doesn't know when to stop eating.

    I offered to give a friend some venison bones with meat on for his GSP.

    He said fine except for the damaged area, his reasoning being that it usually has metal fragments from the expansion of the projectile in it.

    Not a good idea for dogs to eat, due to the possibility of the dog suffering internal cuts from what it eats.

    Whenever i give mine a feed they are put somewhere they can make a mess in the night and the next day.... not the back of the truck.

    You wont want them inside (a tent) with the gasses released after

    If the dog lives indoors or will be travelling in a car/SUV don’t feed it a lot of meat!
    I would trim off the damaged meat, I have swallowed jacket fragments in a backsteak and it isn’t pleasant.

    Small amount for a start if not a regular raw meat eater. Too much and it will be out the back end pretty quick. As mentioned cut away the damage in case of bullet frag.

    I didnt specify but they are friends dogs i gave him four shoulders yesterday and we weren't sure ,
    As suggested he has given them some cuts equivalent to a normal feed.
    They loved it and we will see what happens i suppose.
    Thanks for the advice

    If you had of said it was someone else's dog I would have given you different advice.
    Bit like when someone else's kids have been at your place destroying things. Feed them up on coke and moro bars about half an hour before they go home. And teaching them to swear usually ensures they aren't allowed to come back.
