Raw Food Diet

By November 25, 2013Northwood Notes
Is a Raw Food Diet for you & your pet? Our opinion, which is backed by The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) & American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)‘s opinions, is NO!
 
Feeding raw food to your pet not only can cause harm to them, but also to you, the public, and other pets in the household. * 30-50% of raw meat contains pathogenic (disease causing) pathogens.   * Up to 30% of dogs that ingest this meat shed the pathogens in their stool, therefore contaminating your house and environment.   * Many of the bacteria in this meat is antibiotic-resistant, which means that we can not treat once they become ill.
