Scare tactics regarding bacteria in raw food

Pet food manufacturers educate veterinary surgeons to tell you that there are major risks involved in feeding raw food with regard to bacteria. Thier scientists have identified bacteria in pet food and in the faeces of those pets fed it, however they do not inform you that a dog on a fully raw, non-grain diet does not get affected by these bacteria, here is why:

Bile and pancreatic juice released into the duodenum are

bactericidal for :

  • E.coli
  • Shigella
  • Salmonella 
  • Klebsiella

bacteriostatic for:

  • Coagulase (+ & -)
  • staphulocci
  • pseudomonas

and inhibit candida albicans
