    OK, silly question I know, but is it safe for dogs to eat lamb? We had a joint of lamb for lunch today and there's a fair amount left over. Is it OK to cut it off the bone and add it to our dog's meals? Whilst I have seen a few lamb treats around I don't recall seeing an actual lamb dog food (usually beef, chicken and so on), hence my question ;)

    .

    Depending on the age of the lamb, it can be an unweaned infant or [in the USA] a whopping 150#, 9-MO meat-breed from west of the Mississippi. The baby will be more tender & lean; the teenager will be more muscular & RICHER, with more fat.

    I'd be sure to trim off visible fat, & I wouldn't give too much at one time - I'd freeze the mother-lode in portions, after trimming the fat away, & defrost it as i wanted to use it. ;)

    Lamb is one of Harri's favourites!

    I've seen it in lots of commercial foods and his current treats are lamb based

    Yes of course our dogs can eat lamb/mutton. From new born to very old, it's all edible meat.

    Thanks for all the replies. Thought I'd accept the embarrassment of asking a daft question and be safe rather than sorry.

    arelhuman, I was told many years ago and still follow it. The only daft or silly question is the one you dont ask.
