Pet owners are fortunate these days to have a wide range of feeding choices for pets including dry food, canned, and raw food diets.
There has been considerable controversy surrounding the feeding of raw food diets to cats and dogs. Some veterinarians are quite opposed to this diet because they feel that it’s an unsafe and nutritionally lacking diet. On the other hand, some veterinarians and nutritionists believe that is vitally important for animals to ingest raw meat. To supporters of this type of diet (including the author), there is no doubt that this is a more healthy and natural way to feed pets. Having said that, there are questions to ask yourself and precautions that need to be taken while considering if this is a diet you can safely provide to your pet.
