Bacteria are everywhere. We all live with a tremendous amount of bacteria and dogs are especially adapted to be able to handle ingesting bacteria. Remember how dogs greet each other and clean themselves…
Handle these foods as you would you own stir-fry chicken. Wash your hands. Clean your benches and be aware of the temperature when defrosting or feeding. A dog's digestive tract is far more robust when it comes to bacteria but sensible hygiene is still required.
Vets generally focus very little on dog nutrition at university. In fact, in some universities, dog food companies present information on dog nutrition as part of the curriculum which means many vets are educated about a dog’s diet by commercial dog food representatives.
Some vet clinics make money from retailing dog foods and some are not realising there are significantly better alternatives to grain-based dog food.
You control what your pet eats. Feeding your pet is not rocket science as pet food companies would have you believe.
A healthier animal resulting in fewer veterinary bills.
Your pet will eat what it is anatomically designed to eat – dentition design, esophageal action, digestive tract and elimination. None of these aspects of canine anatomy supports digestion of grain-based commercial kibbles.
