Bacteria in raw meat is dangerous to my pet – False!
Healthy dogs have several natural defences –
1) Their saliva contains lysozyme, an enzyme that lyses and destroys harmful bacteria.
2) Their short digestive tract is designed to push bacteria through quickly without giving it time to establish.
3) Most of the documented cases of severe bacterial septicaemia are from kibble-fed animals or animals suffering from reactions to vaccinations.
4) Commercial pet foods have been pulled off shelves more than once because of bacteria and moulds.
