And don't eat the snacks set out on a bar. How many drunks wash their hands after going to the bathroom before diving into the pretzels?

My vet said the same thing. Molly has never been ill from raw. She's had colitis and very soft stool from kibble. Her coat is beautiful too, from raw and less shedding.

20 years of raw feeding, never caught anything from that. Got food poisoning from eating at a Ruby Tuesday's once tho, on a 2 day drive home from a dog event. THAT was a rough drive home!!

I've fed thousands of pounds of raw meat and bone to my dogs. Some of it was nasty (as in gone past it's good-by date, smelled rank and so on), most of it was good. Never had a problem with myself, my husband or the dogs.

The ONLY time I was cautious was when I was going through chemo for breast cancer. During that time my DH fed the dogs and cleaned up after them. I didn't allow them to lick me on the mouth right after they ate (but would let them later).

Ask the butcher at the grocery store if he gets sick from handling all that raw meat.

Just use common sense when it comes to handling the meat and you will be fine.

Never been sick. For some odd reason, Tank likes to take his RMB out of his bowl and take it to the dining room to eat on the carpet, but will eat his MM meal from the bowl.

I agree, don’t let the Vet talk you into Science Diet or anyone else use scare tactics on you. My dogs live longer and have less health problems from feeding raw for over 40 years. NEVER have I had a health problem because of it. Neither have my dogs. Just wash your hands and don’t eat it yourself and you should not have a problem either.

A raw fed dog is a healthy dog! I know professional breeders who plainly state on there websites that since they began feeding a raw diet to all their dogs they no longer need the vet; unless its an emergency. No vaccines, nothing! They are just much healthier than a dog fed kibble.
A lot of vets are like a lot of doctors, if something actually helps you or cures a disease you have and they can't control it and prescribe it to make money from it then they would be out of a job.
A raw fed healthy dog that doesn't need to see a vet constantly is hurting their business.
I believe in using vets and I do get mine checked up on, but I know very well that the Science Diet dog food that my vet sells and tries to make sure I keep my dogs on is not the best thing for my dogs to eat.
You even mention raw food diet around my vet and disgust comes over their face.
As long as you clean up after yourself when handling raw foods and immediately wash out any feeding bowls everything should be fine.
