How long have you been feeding raw then??.
I admit i'm emetaphobic (fear of vomiting) and it does concern me. However my dogs health is very important to me, so i feed raw anyway.

So your vet doesn't eat meat himself? Buys everything precooked and never handles raw meat?



Never. I have had food poisoning three times and it was all from precooked restaurant food.

I just practice the same safe handling of raw meat (good commen sense) when I prepare my families meals as I do when preparing Rusty's.

Never been sick.

Never from feeding my dogs raw. Eating restaurant food myself, yes.
It's time that vets catch up.

My husband and I have been feeding our dog at least a partial raw diet for about 6 years (moved to only raw several months ago), and neither of us has ever been sick from it.
As Lisa and Courtney said, it's really no different than preparing meat for yourself.

You know when vet's pull this scare tactic regarding raw it annoys me.

Yes, you should use be very careful when handling raw meat. The concern is more for the human...I have never heard of a dog getting sick from raw..kibble yes.

My vet only warned about feeding a complete raw meal. He has some patients who were just fed raw hamburger...obviously that's a problem.
