RE: Raw Meat: Fact From Fiction
"The head of the Newfoundland and Labrador Veterinarians Association blames social media and the power of word of mouth for the fact that people continue to feed their dogs raw meat, despite potentially serious health consequences, for both humans and canines.

"You know one person says, 'This saved my dog,' and another person says, 'Well, my dog's allergies are really bad and I'm going to try that too,'" said veterinarian Maggie Brown-Bury.

"The fact that the meat is raw has zero proven benefits whatsoever.""

RE: Raw Meat: Fact From Fiction
"Owners who feed homemade raw food diets can easily fall short of “complete and balanced” unintentionally. Even most commercial raw food diets have not undergone a feeding trial to support digestibility and absorption of the nutrients in the food. Also, bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella, and parasites like Sarcocystis are just a few of the unwanted “ingredients” that may be present in a raw diet. Raw food exposes the pet and the owner to disease such as salmonellosis from contaminated raw pet food."

RE: Raw Meat: Fact From Fiction
"Dispelling the Myths

The morphologic and pathophysiologic characteristics of the gastrointestinal systems of dogs, cats, and humans are remarkably similar. Many who advocate feeding raw diets contend that dogs and cats have a more acid stomach and shorter gastrointestinal tracts than do humans, protecting them from pathogenic bacteria. However, there is no difference among these species in regard to gastric pH and no evidence to suggest the difference in length of the gastrointestinal tract is protective to dogs and cats. All three species manifest similar clinical signs after ingesting food contaminated with pathogens. The severity of these signs is related to the dose of microbes or toxin ingested as well as the condition of the host.

Food Poisoning Frequency

Frequency of food poisoning in pets is difficult to determine. Veterinarians presented with a family pet for intermittent episodes of vomiting or diarrhea would treat the case symptomatically and are unlikely to send samples for bacterial culture and polymerase chain reaction identification. Hence, most if not all cases of food poisoning in the family pet are not reported because of a low level of suspicion and financial constraints.

Raw-meat advocates do not deny but downplay the potential health risks. No scientific evidence exists that a raw diet is superior to any dry or canned pet food. As a result, this practice is associated with health risks to pet and family with no demonstrable benefit."

RE: Raw Meat: Fact From Fiction
"Three researchers from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine studied the case of two cats who developed a Salmonella infection after eating a raw meat-based diet. They suffered gastrointestinal upset with loss of weight and appetite. Both cats died. Salmonella in tissue cultures from one of the cats was identified as the same Salmonella found in the raw meat used in the cat’s homemade diet."
