    Crikey !!!....will do for sure. Thanks for the heads up.

    My dogs bury bones etc and dig them up whenever. I even get "off bones" from the butcher as these are their favourites, their stomachs are totally set up for manky meat, bones, even weeks old.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    My dog buried one fairly meaty marrow bone and then went and retreived it a few days later - it was very rank, the ants liked it a lot and she got the runs...

    I think it's a dog thing to get the meat tender, but I'm not a huge fan of it. If she doesn't want to eat it now - I'm not leaving it out for the ants or her to bury and then get the runs later. Not that I give her bones. She did sample a couple of ones my brother's dog had abandoned the other day, and seemed ok. But there wasn't much meat left on those. And surprisingly enough - she ground quite a large portion of one up and it all went through ok. Usually we have problems with splinters from the bones.

    So - summary - it depends on your dog and how strong their stomach is. And how strong yours is - for coping with menky recycled bones.

    Beware, dogs shouldn't eat off meat either. Some internal worms can be transferred this way, you should check the bones before you give them to your dogs.

    Take care when the adult teeth come in. She will have the same power as Maggie suddenly developed and within a fortnight she had destroyed and eaten thongs any soft toy anything remotely chewable. I found poop piles with bits that had gone through. It was a rapid transition and choking was suddenly as real hazard as was stuff being stuck on the way through the system.She still chews wood but it is hard wood and we have it too widely spread to get it all.
    Material can wind out into threads which get caught internally, she ate her blanket and 2 beds.
    At 8 months this has settled, thank goodness. Favourite toys now are an empty bucket and an old broom. Cheap really, stood in Bunnings deciding which bucket to buy for the dog to run around the back yard with! Boat rollers next

    They are human grade meat from the butcher.
    The bacteria in their stomachs is set up for this.

    "dogs shouldn't eat off meat either"

    shouldnt they?
    are you sure?

    I have owned 5 dogs to date, that would disagree strongly with you lol. The more high, the better. Gee, if its truly rotten, you can put some on for perfume too, double the bang for your buck as far as mine are concerned.

    We live bush area, where dead rotten meat can be found in abundance on walks, roo's, rabbits, weired aussie dude animals i dont even know etc. All get chomped on, rolled on.
    Sure, occasionally, i might get a runny tummy and a lot of gas from this. But there is no way i can prevent mother nature leaving these wonderfully aromatic snacks in the bush. So, i roll with it, whilst they roll on it.

    What do you think wild dogs eat? I am sure the Dingo's on fraser Island will not turn down a rotting piece of fish or meat if they came across it.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I trust my dog to make the call on eating off meat. If she chooses to cure her bone before she eats it, I let her, as long as she doesn't try to bring it inside.

    Bernie, Banjo does it too, but my previous dog was much worse at rolling in dead things. But it had to be the right level of rotting. If it was too fresh to roll in, she'd just wee on it! Dogs are so funny...

    I guess they can but I read something that says it isn't entirely beneficial.
