Vets have very limited training in nutrition, and what they have is sponsored by pet food companies, so take that with a grain of salt.
There are also HPP raw diets that are sterile, FYI.
Castlemaid, that must have been disappointing, but I'm glad you didn't let some policy stop you from doing what is best for your dogs. Hopefully people can push for change.
I do understand where they are coming from though, and patient safety is top priority, but I sincerely doubt enough research has been put in to say that feeding raw is going to make people sick.
