Information about Raw Food diets:
Dogs CAN get salmonella and E. Coli from eating raw food. After eating one raw meal contaminated with salmonella, the pet can shed the salmonella pathogen in their feces for 30 days.
The USDA does NOT acknowledge the term “human grade” when it comes to meat. Almost every raw food diet website claims to use “human grade” meat.
Raw food does NOT have all the nutrition that your pet needs. It lacks sufficient amounts of Calcium and Phosphorus.
