Just wondering, for those who feed raw.
Can any meat be fed raw (uncooked) or like for humans, must certain meats like pork or chicken be “treated” first (by cooking or freezing, for example).
Can any meats be fed or are some to be avoided ? (I know that things like bone and liver must respect certain percentages)

I think barf and alot of other raw feeds are sold frozen. Is this for convenience reasons or because it’s better/safer to feed thawed meat ?

Most raw meat for dogs is frozen to kill off certain parasites, but many bacteria can survive freezing. Salmon (and most other fish) should always be frozen for 2-3 weeks before use.

Just about any meat can be given, even pork (people used to avoid feeding pork because of worms in the muscle, which isn't a problem now in most countries) although pork gas a higher fat ratio, so should be used with caution.

People assume that meat sold for human consumption is okay for dogs, but it is often prepared in less sanitary conditions than dog food, as it is assumed that it will be cooked before eating.

I think it's far more important to follow strict hygiene when preparing & feeding raw - so many people don't clean the preparation and feeding areas, leeding to nasties like salmonella poisoning!

I have the same opinion.
But as long as you are careful with hygiene, you will not have a problem. Or at least I've never had any. Regards Smile Smile Smile

Hygiene is important for both dog and human. If the preparation & feeding areas aren't kept clean, or the raw meat isn't kept frozen/refrigerated, then there will be health risks.

I used to know someone who fed their dogs on the living room carpet!  Surprised Needless to say they had a few dodgy stomachs & changed their feeding practices when they had a child.
