Default Okay guys I'm getting worried.

Okay so I'm feeding raw to my Elios.
And recently I've been getting worried
about him getting MRSA and ecolli and
what nots.. Has anyone had any bad things
Happen with raw feeding?

I love the fact that he doesn't potty as much
And that his teeth are so clean.. So I don't really
Want to switch back to kibble..
What do you guys think?

Dogs stomachs are designed to digest raw food at a much quicker rate, so the food doesn't sit in there for a long time like it would a humans, so they won't get sick from it.

Never had a problem. I think restaurant food is more dangerous.

I hear so much bad about it that it's driving me bonkers.
I love the benifits and how his teeth are so clean and his potty is so small and he seems to be doing good.
I wish the whole coat being shinny and less shedding would work on him though hahah but I am just worried with all the people tellin me it's bad.
I don't have enought money to buy like a hundred dollars a month for a really good kibble that still had fillers.. I just don't have that money.

If his coat is not shiny and he is shedding a lot, there could be a nutritional deficiency. What exactly are you feeding?

Who's telling you all of this bad stuff? Vets? People that have never done a raw diet?
