Dog meat is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.
Dog meat restores some Hit Points when consumed, but also gives you a small does of radiation in the form of +3 rads. Additionally, in hardcore mode, it can reduce Starvation by 35, at the expense of -1 Strength for a 2 minute duration. One piece of meat is used in crafting dog steaks.
