A canines saliva effectively kills most bad bacteria or they would not have survived centuries.
No one we know, has ever gotten e coli or salmonella from RAW feeding their dogs.
Ironically, we know plenty that have gotten food poisoning at restaurants.
Now -I don’t tongue kiss my dogs and they are not big lickers – though Cira loves to lick my nephew’s hands and face -when they first arrive.
No one ever got sick, not even when my nephews were little toddlers.
Talking about tongue kissing -I had one of our clients-Gracie's dad -say that Gracie often licks his face and can inadvertently catch him in the mouth- and STILL he has never gotten sick.
This is NOT the only Raw feeder we hear this from. However
– To help out the dogs natural ability and for peace of mind and just good sanitary habits
.....we always clean clean clean… suggest you wipe their muzzle with water and ACV ( apple cider Vinegar) or the better smelling Aunt Lyn’s Holistic Defense Shampoo and Quick Wipe-
it not just for the dogs coat- but for laundry and crate cleaning and HypoAllergenic - plus Anti Viral Bacterial and had a Bug Barrier..
