Dogs can be fed different types of raw meat foods including fresh, frozen, freeze-dried, raw-coated, etc. However, it is important to evaluate any risks related to the chosen meat products for your dog.
The risk of pathogens in raw meat is always present. Pathogens can lead to gastroenteritis and other digestive issues. Your dog may continue to shed the pathogens in its stool for a long period after ingesting contaminated raw meat, without showing any clinical signs. If your dog has been fed a raw meat diet and if you suspect any possibility of contamination in the raw meat, it is prudent to evaluate the risk of infection to yourself, your family and any other pets you might have.
Additionally, raw meats that also contain bones can lead to dental damage and may also lead to obstruction or perforation of the esophagus as well as other gastrointestinal disorders.

Introducing any new food into your dog’s diet must be done step by step. Whenever a new food is fed, it is essential to monitor your dog for any adverse effects like allergic reactions.
Even if a particular food is considered to be generally safe for dogs, you must always be careful when you first start feeding it to your dog. Always feed a new food to your dog in moderation so as to avoid weight gain and other negative consequences.
Also, it is important to always remember that one dog may tolerate a certain food very well, while another dog might experience some issues from the very same food.
Your dog will enjoy having a treat every once in a while. Just make sure that you only feed him foods that are not toxic to dogs.
Any questions and doubts related to portion sizes of particular foods for your dog are best addressed by an experienced veterinarian.
