@mudpuppy ... My understanding.....These studies are not saying you should not feed a dog a Fresh Food Raw diet.
"There was no conclusion on this topic because there are not any scientific studies to determine one way or the other if a Fresh Raw Food Diet was better or not. Currently, there is only personal or antidotal stories about its benefit." summarized
There are four Research Articles that are difficult to understand for the typical Lay Person ... like Me.
The Raw Deal Studies
were done on Commercially Sold Frozen Raw Food
products one would buy in a store such as Pet Co. Correction in wording: The Raw Deal report is not a Study. It is a report about Four Studies about Commercial Frozen Raw Food Products.
The fourth was a review of findings based on 30 Scientific studies.
The authors concluded that there remains little doubt, based upon the published evidence, that the prevalence of potentially serious pathogens is substantially higher in raw pet food
than in heat-treated foods and that these levels may pose a significant health risk to both pets and humans.
These are not studies about Fresh Raw Human Food that someone buys in the grocery store or from a butcher to feed their dogs
, which I believe is what you do.
I don't know if Commercially Sold Frozen Raw dog food is Human Grade? Probably Not. Perhaps someone knows this.
If I'm reading the studies wrong ... Please correct my interpretation.
