Why feeding raw food to your dog is dangerous

If you are serving raw food to your dog, you must know it can be dangerous for them.

Raw meat diets are typically frozen before sale and not treated with heat or pasteurized to kill bacteria.

Raw meat diets contain numerous types of bacteria that can be dangerous to both humans and pets, according to a report.

"Raw and undercooked animal-source protein can contain pathogens that are harmful to animals," suggest experts.

The bacteria found in the study have the potential to make both animals and their owners sick.

Dog “kisses” and other close contacts can lead to the transfer of harmful pathogenic bacteria to humans.

Experts called on dog owners to maintain good hygiene due to the potential risks of raw food on animal health.

They are also suggested to handle raw dog food in a separate area away from human food.
