Can Raw Diets Give Your Pet Salmonella?

I get a TON of questions, as well as warnings about salmonella almost daily. I touched on it in a few videos, but I realized I should probably make a whole video regarding raw food and salmonella. Enjoy! 🦠

    E coli is rampant in spinach and romaine lettuce. Last I checked people still eat salad.

  5. kendra x on June 29, 2021 at 10:43 am

    so I let raw food thaw in the fridge not outside?

    If your dog does gets sick, don’t freak out. One of mine got sick from fish oil that turned rancid (my fault). Puked 🤮 all over the place. I simply had her fast for 24 hours and the gave her some of her veggie mix (probiotics) afterwards. Farts smelled like crazy. The other dogs were farting up a storm as well, but did better. Taught me a lesson. I can only keep fish oil around for a couple months even if it is refrigerated. Fasting does a lot for dogs (24-48 hours). Just make sure they have access to water. Point is, we may make a mistake when feeding a fresh diet, but I don’t think there are the dangers like aflatoxin, mycotoxin, Vitamin D overdose, melamine being snuck into the synthetic vitamin mix….all of these have led to serious animal deaths and sickness with kibble.

    I already know the answer without needing to watch – ALL types of predatory carnivores are necessarily immune to salmonella, e-coli, and all other intestinal microflora inhabiting their natural prey … if they werent, then eating their prey would kill them, which is utterly absurd if you think about it.

    Bottom line: salmonella is only an issue for us humans, NOT for cats or dogs, or any obligate carnivore for that matter.

    Well my dog would be dead. If you don’t know how to handle raw meat… you need to work in a kitchen

  9. heh on June 29, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Can you recommend us some raw diet online shops??

  10. MEK Productions on June 29, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Hello I want to start feeding my dog some raw food how should I start? What shall I start with? Can I feed any raw food as just a treat? I am not comfortable with fully feeding raw yet but still want to include it. My dog currently eating Acana/Origen and I would like to add some raw once in a while . basically my question is what to start with and if I can just give it as a treat once in a while. Thank you so much for theses informative videos and I appreciate it! 😊🙂

    Hello! Ty for this video, it was really helpful! So if you don’t mind I wanted to ask if this diet is OK for my puppy? It includes ground beef, sometimes ground chicken or mutton, carrots, spinach, chicken necks, a raw egg, and canned tuna or sardines? I have a feeling this diet isn’t right yet, so could you please tell me what to add and what quantity of ingredients I need? Thank you!

    Is it safe for my dog to lick stuff after eating raw food?

  13. John Magkas on June 29, 2021 at 10:53 am

    @The Primal Pack Hi! Thanks for the content! i got 2 dogs a 5yo female jack russell and a GSD (also fostering a frenchie for few months to help a family member)
    all of which have been eating high quality kibble like Acana/Naturea etc and some raw (beef veggies bones etc) but never Chicken because even though everyone says its ‘kinda’ safe im still stuck in my ways and fears! i mean i see the facts about them being able to handle raw chicken and salmonella but im always worried about their saliva afterwards.. their paws and stuff. i mean if for example they eat Raw chicken and then fetch,, is that tennis ball ok to be at home? or if she licks/touches stuff is there a chance of getting it exposed to salmo? Probably not right? but "probably" is not making me sure enough :/
    i cant ask a vet around here, i live in Greece and trust me , me and you know more about dogs and their diets than vets in my country..
    Is there anyway you can give me facts i cant look away from? Cuz i really wanna feed them the best i can! and im "almost" sure raw is the "best" i can.So if u can help me clear my head and thoughts about salmo on saliva,paws etc that would be great.. cuz im thinking ok my dog eats raw chicken quarters for example.. then how do i clean his paws? do i wipe/wash them everytime they eat? thats 12 legs x2 times a day?XD im getting paranoid i know ^^

  14. SHIN YUSKE on June 29, 2021 at 10:54 am

    My dog finally ate a whole ptey and it wasnt from me. It rained hard for a day and gophers drowned and where laying in the field and before i noticed my dog was munching on one and swallowed. :0 at least they were fresh so i wasn’t too worried but i was surprised.

  15. Dan Kleiser Cuizon on June 29, 2021 at 10:57 am

    This is very helpful. I just went to my vet and she didn’t approve of me raw feeding my kitten. But she still said my kitten’s very healthy haha.

  16. Clumsy Smurf on June 29, 2021 at 10:58 am

    So, I started my 10 month old cat on partially raw when he was about 6 months. He is thriving; healthy shiny coat, muscles, all of it. I’ve been giving him chicken breast cubes and am very cautious about handling it. I recently bought him some breast and choppped it up in his dinner. He had mucusy poop and threw up almost 10 hrs later, all the food intact. He threw up again in the morning, was weak and not intrested in his favorite canned food which is verry unlike him. I have no doubt it’s salmonella. I know you’re are not a vet, but how could this happen to him? I feel so guilty for giving him the chicken, it was freshly bout, smelled and looked perfect, and I washed everything. Ples give me some pointers if you can❤❤

    Edit: along with the raw chikn cubes, I give him blueberries, cooked spinach, a soft poached egg, coconut oil and wet or dry food (blue wilderness brand) I’ve been doing it like this for a few months and everything was going really really well. I am always doing research but I must be getting something wrong
    Ples help

  17. Denise Jacqueline on June 29, 2021 at 11:01 am

    So what about a dog on chemo? They shouldn’t eat raw because their immune system is low and they could get sick from the salmonella?

  18. The Woof Pack on June 29, 2021 at 11:07 am

    You can get salmonella just from handling kibble…

  19. Chen on June 29, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I like your channel very detailed and informative. And I learned lots. So one question though, how many bowls (the bowl in your videos )do you feed Your cat Tanny one day? It looks like a pretty big bowl. I am wondering how much and how often to feed my 6 months kitten.

  20. Frostelle Builds on June 29, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Can you do a video on whether raw fed dogs can eat pork, and why you should add second secreting organs. And rawfeeding puppies?

  21. Fleep Bloop on June 29, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Maam ur videos are so hq, u deserve way more subs. Thanks for this video!

  22. Olivia Maluorni on June 29, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Do you have a video specific to puppies? Can I feed a puppy a balanced NRC guideline diet with all the nutrients/vitamins needed. I want to go by the body weight calculation so feeding 3% of his ideal body weight in 2-3 meals a day.

  23. Jess CATicles on June 29, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Absolutely amazing video!

    Additionally, the University of Helsinki surveyed 16,475 households of raw feeders from 81 countries in 2019. 99.6% of the raw feeding households did not report any pathogens being transmitted from raw food to humans.

    Whenever someone asks me "but what about bacteria?" I just say "your cat licks his butt after he poops" lol.

    And in addition to bacteria recalls on kibble, you also have to worry about harmful drugs, toxic/deficient levels of nutrients, plastic choking hazards, deadly mold, and the list goes on.

  24. Kristen Moore on June 29, 2021 at 11:13 am

    I love your channel, everyone around me thought i was crazy for trying this method of feeding until i showed them your videos haha

  25. Aqua Juwel on June 29, 2021 at 11:13 am

    I have looked in to raw food for my dogs, but, how the hell can people afford to feed them that way? I feed my dogs a high quality no grain dry dog food with a little bit of wet food mixed in to it. All of my dogs have been over 13 years of age and never been seriously sick. Beautiful shiny coats and great teeth. I’m not against raw food, but….it’s not easy on the wallet to say it like that.

  26. Llcoolio on June 29, 2021 at 11:14 am

    what type of dog is yours??

  27. mel saravia on June 29, 2021 at 11:14 am

    i love your channel! do you agree giving your pet grass-fed and grass finished beef is better than beef from mass produced cows?

  28. Hc Cs on June 29, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Do you smell meat before you give it to a cat, to check is it fresh?? I do this every time when buying meat.

  29. Eastern08 on June 29, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Love the content thx 🙂

  30. #Xh.B on June 29, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Thanks! Considering feeding my cat at least a raw meal a day. Gave her once a raw chicken heart and she took it from her plate and hide to eat it if as she had catched her pray.

  31. Alison Wheeler on June 29, 2021 at 11:18 am

    I Introduced raw food to my dog from a very good company and I was happy how it was going into until the eighth day my dog became ill and deteriated rapidly she was in At the vet hospital for eight days she was very ill after three blood test they could not wholly identify what caused this catastrophic event that very nearly cost her life she’s recovering slowly but surely and is on antibiotics still she’s eating small amounts of cooked chicken and turkey and is on the mend . the

  32. Sumann Gon on June 29, 2021 at 11:19 am

    does blast frozen meat, after thawing contain salmonella? or freeze dried meat?

  33. Sandra Herrera on June 29, 2021 at 11:21 am

    How many days an unfrozen meal can last in the refrigerator? 🤔 I would like to make single portions for those quantity of days, thanks!

  34. WILD BIRDHOUSE on June 29, 2021 at 11:22 am

    Thanks a lot. 👍

  35. Sarah Wants A Border Collie on June 29, 2021 at 11:24 am

    Are there nutritionists online that can be trusted? I want to feed my miniature schnauzer raw, but I don’t know how much to feed of everything. And with the whole pandemic, I don’t know if I want to go out and find one in person…

  36. Kurnia Tjahaya on June 29, 2021 at 11:25 am

    What sanitizer is safe for dogs?

  37. Robinheathen on June 29, 2021 at 11:27 am

    I fed my pup raw for a few years and unfortunately she DID come down with salmonellosis. The infection even attacked her joints to the point that at first, they thought she had lyme or anaplasmosis. This occurred after I picked her up from a boarding kennel. I believe they did not handle her food appropriately (leaving it out, thawing it too soon, etc.). Watching her unable/unwilling to move was gut wrenching. As a result, her primary meals are gently cooked for now. However, I give her a raw sardine, chicken wing, or turkey neck a couple times a week still. I love this channel, and hope it takes off. I am sure with its support I’ll come back around to fully raw meals 🙂

  38. Sarah Sofia on June 29, 2021 at 11:27 am

    I need your videos to have millions of views they are too darn good :"))

  39. Ash on June 29, 2021 at 11:29 am

    I am getting a puppy soon and the recipe im using for when he goes fully raw is 2.75 oz of ground beef, 1 oz chicken wings, .5 oz beef heart, .5 oz pork kidney, .75 oz beef liver, 1.75 oz canned sardines, .5 oz canned oysters, 1 oz kale, 1 oz spinach, one organic egg, 1 drop of maxxiomega(vitaim oil and fish oil) and 1/2 scoop solid gold (kelp). He is a cockapoo and should be about 25 pounds as an adult, do you think this is good or should I add more or less?

  40. BlueHorse17 on June 29, 2021 at 11:32 am

    We went from grain-free kibble to regular kibble and now raw. I feel like it’s a healthy increase train.
