Default Ripe Meat for Kibble-fed dog

Snowball is mainly kibble fed, with raw supplements a few times a month. He has eaten raw in the past for a few weeks and had no issues, even with a quick switch.

Now... I've got two turkey wings sitting in my fridge that I bought on Monday, meaning to give to him, and I kept forgetting. They were packed on Feb 8 (a week ago) and they're just starting to get slimy. I looked into whether old meat is generally okay for dogs, and I found alternately that old meat should never be fed (i.e. don't feed your dog anything you wouldn't eat yourselves), and that old meat is just fine for raw-fed dogs. But I haven't really found anything about old meat for kibble-fed dogs. I'm tempted to just give him one, but I was wondering whether anyone feeding kibble has any experience with feeding meat on the riper side.

It'll be fine. I feed only raw, never kibble. It seems the stinkier the better! Dogs bodies are designed to handle raw meat, old, new, bacteria and all. We humans not so much, dogs yes. Think about what all dogs eat they find on their own. Like, poop.

Thanks for your input everyone. I gave Snowball the smaller of the two wings today. It... had an off smell when I took it out of the package, but it wasn't horrific. The dog sure didn't baulk at it! He spent 5 minutes just licking the snow where he'd been chewing on it, making sure he got every single drop.
