Yep. Ours had giardia several times. They’ve now basically developed immunity to it, but at the time, the male had giardia which caused colitis and that’s what was misdiagnosed.
It can, that’s why it’s important to find a good supplier. The place we go to uses FDA approved human-grade meet. They are their own supplier, basically and the quality is controlled very tightly. We could take the meet they sell, cook it and eat it ourselves.
They don’t sell much in the way of fish/sea products.
This is a typical response from folks who haven’t properly researched raw diets for pets (cats & dogs). Dogs are selectively bred wolves. They should eat what wolves eat - raw meat/bone. Like RIotvan mentioned, if you cook the meat, the bone in it will become dangerous for the animal to consume and the meet will loose some of it’s nutritional value. Wolves don’t eat cooked meet. They eat it raw, from the animal they just killed.
Also as mentioned, bacteria and parasites are practically a non-issue if you buy from a quality, reputable supplier. You buy the meet frozen and you keep it frozen until the day prior to consumption (thaw it in the fridge). The risk of contracting bad bacteria or parasites is extremely low. They’re more likely to pick something up out on a walk in the park etc.
Humans don’t eat raw meet because out digestive systems are not meant for that. We aren’t wolves.
Most raw pet food suppliers use FDA approved human-grade meets. If they don’t, then you shouldn’t buy from them. It’s the owner’s responsibility to ensure the food they give their pet is safe.
