    On the other hand, in the English-speaking world, "dog's meat" is meat fed to a dog.
    If mfhaq77 gave some more context, it would be easier to explain what he means.

    Possibly a mishearing/misreading of "dog's dinner" = a complete mess.

    Re: What is 'dog's meat'?

    In AmE, "dog meat" is a slang term to indicate that someone is in big trouble and is going to either be thrashed within an inch of his life, or in extreme cases, killed.

    "I can't believe my boyfriend cheated on me! If I ever see that jerk again, he is dog meat!"
