We can’t emphasise enough the importance of good hygiene around food. This is true whether we are talking about our own food or our pets’ food, and whether we are talking about kibble, canned, pouches, raw, freeze dried, cold pressed or any other method of manufacturing food for the animals who share our lives.
There is a common misconception that feeding a highly processed food is safe and hygienic. You only have to look at a few references in the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society’s Position Statement to realise that this is far from the truth. Many of our veterinary colleagues react with horror to the idea of raw feeding, without giving thought to the very real and all too frequent risks arising from feeding processed food.
