^^Pretty much how I feel about it.I prefer raw. Cooking destroys certain nutrients, some of which get severely depleted in the cooking process. If it's just an addition, I don't see why you can't use cooked scraps/leftovers, but I won't go out of my way to cook toppers for the dogs unless one of them won't eat it or has a problem with that type of raw meat. Some dogs can't digest raw meat very well (or at all, and yes, they exist), but for the vast majority of them, raw is better.
Just exactly how is nutrient loss not valid? I am curious.The nutrient thing isn't very valid really. Just use the cooking liquid and cook gently and I don't know what would be lost.
I had a nice reply written up but my computer decided to restart on me so you get the half-assed version.
