Linking Vizsla's Around the World
While the FDA warnings, in some cases, are accurate, take them with a grain of salt and common sense.
Certain amounts and strains of salmonella are not harmful to dogs at all. Consider this one example: a piece of raw chicken in the fridge too long would smell "off" to humans and they would likely not eat it. However, that same piece of chicken would be fine to give to a dog.
Having said all that ...
My humans have fed a raw diet for > 25 years to our Vizslas and a Westie (only 14 years for him so far). They use a Musher's Mix blend of beef, organ, chicken, pork and fish. They also add to that a serving (weight related) of Wendy Volhard's NDF2. Finally, to help clean our teeth, we get tartar control cookies after each meal (we eat 2x per day) and free-oxygen additive to our water. Feel free to join me on facebook and you can see pictures of all these furbabies.
The Musher's Mix we get comes in 2.25-2.5Lb frozen blocks. Mommy puts 2 at a time in ZipLoc (reusable) freezer bags and starts a new block to thaw every time we eat.
Hope this helps, feel free to reply here or message me for more info if you like :)
... I should also add that I agree with some of the other postings in that if a dog is health-compromised in any way then yes, certain bacteria can be very harmful. Also that the meat must be handled and stored carefully so the humans feeding it do not introduce any new bacteria.
