Are you somebody who still feels afraid of the potential risk of feeding your dog a raw food diet? Have you considered feeding raw and then scrapped the idea because of the fear of pathogens, infection from bacteria that could either make your dog sick, or worse yet...make you or a member of your family sick?
Well, I'd like you to think about this. I hope it puts your fears to rest. Peace at last! Peace at last! Here's how to change your thinking about raw feeding without feeling the fear.
Your dog eats poop and doesn't die!
Your dog eats garbage and doesn't die!
Your dog drinks from the toilet bowl and doesn't die!
Your dog scavenges something suspicious on a walk and doesn't die!
Your dog eats poop, doesn't die, and you don't either, even though he is probably shedding pathogens as I'm telling you this!
Your dog eats garbage, doesn't die, and sheds pathogens that could potentially kill you, but they don't!
Your dog drinks from the toilet bowl, doesn't die, and neither do you, even though he licked your face and shed pathogens directly on you!
Why didn't anyone die?
Because both you and your dog each have immune systems that work to protect you from random pathogens. There is no vaccine to protect you from life and shit that happens! Dogs will continue to eat poop and drink from the toilet bowl.
A little common sense goes a long way.
So feed your dog raw. Don't worry about the zoonotic ( transfer from animal to human ) risk.
Wash your hands before and after preparing food for your dog and yourself...and relax, breathe. Haven't you got enough to worry about besides this topic?
All is well!
We all love our dogs.
If you ask someone WHY they love their dog, they'll probably say something along the lines of " my dog loves me unconditionally " or " it doesn't matter what I do, my dog still loves me " or " my dog makes me feel better when life sucks " or " my dog is always glad to see me " or ' Nobody loves me like my dog loves me "...and on and on.
It's all true.
So, the question is, why are dogs able to live their lives in this ultra loving, compassionate, all forgiving way and still be happy, asking nothing for themselves and giving everything they have to us willingly every day for years.
They just don't seem to care. If things go right, they go right, if things go wrong, they go wrong.
If they're healthy and well, that's great. If they're sick, that's OK too. They just live with it, or die. Whatever is, is whatever is!
Dogs don't seem to have opinions about anything. They just live every day as best they can. That's it then. That's the secret. Scrap your opinions! You can even scrap your opinion about what I just wrote!
