Kim Pittsburgh, PA 6/23/2010 9:20:37 AM To Kyle, not that I have ever heard of. As long as you clean up properly after chopping/cutting, you should have no problems. I clean my floor with an antibacterial cleaner and also wipe down my counters with the same. To the poster that says trust your vet, when it comes to nutrition, they do NOT have the training needed. Nutrition is skimmed over in college, many will tell you that. The seminar I went to also mentioned that. and it was a vet giving it. The dog food companies are the ones that put up the money to the universities to fund their programs, so that is the nutrition path they are led down. I have nothing buy praise for it. My 13 y/o German Shepherd has more energy, I have less stool in the yard and it breaks down quickly, teeth are cleaner, no doggy smell. Just to name a few. For those looking into this diet, RESEARCH, that is the best advice I can give. I researched and read books before started. You need a meat source, to buy in bulk is where the best savings are at. I rarely buy from the grocery store. This book is a must and I've been to his seminar http://www.beaveranimalclinic. com/Dr_Doug_Beaver_Animal_Clinic/index.htm Raw Dog Food: Make It Easy for You and Your Dog by Carina Beth Macdonald (Author) Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats by Kymythy Schultze (Author) All 3 books should be read before starting. Google Raw Dog Food and you will find the BARF website and a FAQ website both loaded with information. Dog food has only been around the last 60 years or so. What did dogs eat before that? Ask yourselves that question.
