Q. I left my dog’s raw food out of the fridge too long and it smells bad! Is it safe to feed it or should I throw it away?
I left my dog?s raw food out of the fridge too long and it smells bad! Is it safe to feed it or should I throw it away?

A. My dogs don’t have problems eating some pretty ripe stuff. I am not sure I would feed spoiled meat to my dogs but if it’s a bit stinky and ‘off’ I will still let the dogs munch on it. The riper , the better in their book!

I would not feed even slightly gamy or nasty smelling meat to a pup or dog with a medical issue or compromised immune system.

If you worry about things like that then just throw it away. No sense taking chances !
