Is Raw Meat DANGEROUS for Pets?
Have you been considering feeding your pet a raw diet but you're worried about the potential bacteria in raw meat? It's easy to think that since we have to worry about it as humans, but your pets were actually designed to eat raw meat!
Benefits of Raw Meat
When we feed out pets a properly made raw food diet, it's the best diet you can give them for their overall health and immune system. Feeding them raw meat actually helps to strengthen their immune system.
This means if they are exposed to a bacteria in the raw meat, their immune system will be strong enough to fight it off as it was designed!
Not Feeding Raw Meat Can Cause the Opposite Effect
If you're only feeding your pet cooked meat, overtime their immune system will actually weaken. This will leave them more susceptible to bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites which can lead to them being ill over time.
The best thing you can do is give your pet a properly handled and made raw food diet. You can learn to make your own or you can choose one of my recommended commercially made raw pet foods! Either way, you can feel confident knowing you're giving your pet an immune boost by making the switch!
