So I have been really considering put my dogs on a raw diet. One thing that I though would be really cost effective is that I have a family of hunters and I can just buy an extra doe tag for each of them and they can hunt for a majority of my needs. While out meeting with the trainers this weekend, one of them also does raw feeding. He said that he cooks the deer before feeding because he doesnt want to run the risk of contracting lymes disease. I cant really find any direct info or comments about this.... I know freezing will get rid of parasites but lymes is not a parasite and it is scares the bejesus out of me, we had to put a horse down that contracted lymes disease this past year.
