Q. Is a Raw Dog Food Diet Safe?
Many people worry about contamination and/or bacteria with a raw diet. The truth is, there is very little risk if the food is properly processed and then handled safely just as you would with any meat product. At K-9 Kraving, we use a cold-manufacturing method; all raw food components consistently remain below 28-degrees Fahrenheit throughout the entire production and packaging process.
You basically have to follow the same, simple steps as you would when handling meat prepared for your family:
- Keep frozen until use
- Keep raw meats separate from other foods
- Wash working surfaces, utensils, hands and any other items that are in contact with raw meat, fish and poultry
- Refrigerate leftovers immediately or discard
- Keep raw food frozen and thaw in your refrigerator prior to serving
Bacteria grow best at temperatures of 70° to 100°F and they will grow more slowly at temperatures above and below this temperature range. Your refrigerator should be between 34° and 40°F, because most bacteria grow extremely slowly, if at all, in this range.
Q. Is a Raw Dog Food Diet Safe for my dog?
A dog's digestive system is shorter and more acidic which makes the risk of food-borne infections very rare. Dogs are direct descendants of wolves and we believe they are simply not genetically optimized to consume the 50% carbohydrate content of today's commercial kibble. In the wild, dogs eat raw. With that in mind, our diet is formulated to give your dog the healthiest balanced raw diet along with the convenience of packaged dog food.
See our media page for more information on raw diets.
